Kenn Viselman, KIDS FIRST! and Mondo TV have partnered to launch a climate education initiative inspired by the MeteoHeroes kids’ series in the U.S.
The initiative will include in-school, age-graded education for children aged 4 to 10, as well as on-screen education with online educational materials for children and their families and community outreach. It will be funded by a GoFundMe campaign for which the nonprofit KIDS FIRST! has been recruited to be the fiduciary.
The itsy bitsy Entertainment Company has secured agreements with producing partner Mondo TV Studios, Luigi Latini’s Meteo Experts and Adventure 2 Learning (A2L). Together, they aim to put the initiative into 30,000 schools across the U.S.
Viselman has also teamed up with California’s KVIE PBS to be the presenting station and is working with other PBS stations across the country for them to broadcast or stream MeteoHeroes in conjunction with an original companion series, Real Superheroes Don’t Wear Capes, to be produced with the cooperation of KIDS FIRST!
The campaign will be extended to global partners wherever possible.
