As environmental issues become a greater concern locally, nationally, and globally, students enrolled in Powerful Voices for Kids often have strong feelings about environmental concerns. Our instructors work with students to create media designed as a public service on topics like recycling, green roof initiatives, and keeping Philadelphia clean.
Students met with Caroline Pennartz, an advertiser who worked on the campaign, and were inspired to write their own poem. Then they created a shot list consisting of some favorite spots near school (the Comcast building, Logan Circle, etc.) and filmed a short “Poetic Service Announcement,” which was featured in the Unlitter Us campaign on Facebook.
