10 years.
10 comic art creations.
1 world.

It’s a collection of ten comics, representing each of the ten years left to save the world, and focusing on the different issues and different climate actions needed in the decade ahead.

In this special launch session we will meet all of the artists.

The five UK-based creators will join us in Kendal, and the Philippines-based team will live-stream.

The UK team are a diverse and incredibly gifted group consisting of Jack Teagle, Darren Cullen, Zoom Rockman, Clarice Tudor and Sayra Begum.
