By developing a fun, creative model that combines transmedia storytelling, the children will also be introduced to various art forms. With their active participation at every creation stage, we want to empower them to protect their lake, while raising awareness of the general public and improving lake's governance.", said Felipe Velasco, project leader at Fundación Montecito.
