Comic Series

What is the 11th Hour Comic Series?

The 11th Hour is a collection of comics that explores how climate change has impacted the health of minpeople in MAPA communities. These comics are co-created with community members, and reflects elements of personal experiences and accounts of climate change's impact on minoritised communities. Comics from each setting are unique in style and narrative.

The colleciton is a part of the Envisioning Environmental Equity project that seeks to explore and engage MAPA communities and health professionals about the unequal impact that climate change has on the health of minoritised communities.

Who created
the Series?

Comic development was overseen by EEE collaborators in Brazil, the Philippines, and Uganda.

EEE collaborators worked with young people from minoritised communities in MAPA contexts to explore how climate change impacted their health. Storylines were discussed in workshops with young people, and a local comic artist helped develop storylines into full comics that portrated young peoples' discussions. Comics were brought back to the participants to explore, confirm, and discuss after their completion.
