EnviroComedy festival at Zoo Park
EduVentures brings together A-list comedians.
01 November 2019 | Art and Entertainment
A large number of people are expected for the EnviroComedy festival - between 600 and 1 000.
EnviroComedy is a project that serves to create awareness on environmental issues like climate change, poaching, deforestation and so on.
The idea is to educate people on serious and important issues, while being amused.
Many listeners tend to get bored and sleep when the speeches or teaching method is too formal.
Art is a very powerful tool when it comes to educating people. It is easier to convey a message through an element that is entertaining and enjoyable. Essentially, humour activates our sense of wonder, which is where learning begins, so it seems logical that humour could enhance our method of creating awareness on environmental issues.
This method is also known as edutainment.
