Our Other Mother
12:00 PM
Livable Climate
Description:
This Mother’s Day we are calling on creatives and families to produce a piece of art or a message (illustration, poem, story, photo or song) that shows our love for moms and #OurOtherMother – planet earth.
Open to all!
The campaign has been started by parents’ groups and children’s illustrators, who are worried about climate change and want to push for a brighter, safer future for our children.

It kicked off for the March 14 UK Mother’s Day with iconic British illustrators Jim Field of Oi Frog! and Rebecca Cobb of Paper Dolls, and was launched there by parent climate groups – Our Kids’ Climate, Parents For Future UK, Mother’s Rise Up – and illustrator networks, Kid Lit For Climate and EditArtz.

Families for a Livable Climate is reaching out to Montanans to participate between April 20, the start of Earth Week, and May 9, Mother’s Day in the U.S.!

TO JOIN IN
Get creative! Celebrate #OurOtherMother (planet earth) through an illustration, image, poem, image or anything… Get those creative juices flowing!

Share It. Post on Instagram using the hashtag #OurOtherMother, and also tag #ourMTmother and @livableclimate on Instagram. Not on social media? Simply send us your submission (image/s + text) via email, livableclimate@gmail.com.

Spread the word. Tag people you think would like to be involved and create something celebrating #OurOtherMother.

WHY?
Our shared home, planet earth, is under threat and we all have a role to play in protecting it. So get involved and show your love for #OurOtherMother!
Global climate talks – known as COP26 – are this November. We want to show our leaders how much we care for our planet, #OurOtherMother, and we hope to share some of the images submitted with global leaders. We also hope to share the images from Montana to promote love and respect for Mother Earth this spring and summer, and, with the artist's permission, in our seasonal publication The Changing Times.

COLORING SHEETS
The UK parent-led groups have also created these coloring sheets together with illustrator Anita Bagdi making it super easy for everyone to get involved! Click images to view and print or download high resolution images in a new window here: image 1, image 2, image 3.
