The Jellyfish Project, an environmental non-profit, paid a visit to Barriere Elementary School on Feb. 23.
The Jellyfish Project (JFP), is an initiative that uses live music to engage youth and provide education on ocean sustainability, climate change and environmental stewardship.
The JFP is made up of a coalition of musicians and environmentalists from Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland who are passionate about engaging youth in the environmental conversation and empowering them to be part of the solution to saving the planet, before it’s too late.
Victoria indie folk trio, Carmanah – named after the Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park on Vancouver Island – performed a short set before presenting the students with a series of eye opening environmental facts, followed by numerous suggestions as to how students can do their part to protect the planet, including reducing plastic consumption, eating sustainable seafood and getting green jobs.
Carmanah are touring with The Jellyfish Project across B.C. during February and March.
The JFP has reached over 60,000 youth Canada-wide since 2013.
