Future Chicken appoints Advisory Board to drive global reach and climate content

The Products of Change member and children’s multimedia company, Wind Sun Sky Entertainment has taken a new step to deliver climate change-focused education and empowerment to children with the creation of a new Advisory Board.

Established earlier this month, the Board will support the growth of Future Chicken and its mission to deliver environmentally focused content through its animated shorts, online content, and interactive gaming channels.

Future Chicken features a cast of characters – known as Planet Protectors – that act to ‘counteract the doomism too often associated with the subject of climate change’ by fostering in its audiences a “sense of hope and positivity grounded in evidence-based planet positive solutions happening around the world today.’

It presents this in a comical mixed-media series, a gaming initative on the Roblox platform, a podcast series, and more.

Wind Sun Sky Entertainment’s new Advisory Board will be led by board chairman and Kapor Center Senior Advisor, Dr Michael Levine who will steer the group to provide expertise to the Future Chicken outfit as it continues to deliver and expands its mission. Further members from across the kids’ media, technology, education, and climate journalism landscapes include Amy Friedman, a children’s media executive; Christopher Cerf, one of the original creatives at the Children’s Television Workshop Sesame Street; Anya Kamenetz, an education and social impact journalist and author; Beth Richman, a specialist in children’s media education; and Marco Pimentel, a Canadian digital disruptor and entrepreneur.

“The formation of this extremely accomplished group of leaders in their respective fields marks a significant step forward for Future Chicken as we look to inspire children through stories that educate and empower them to engage with and address climate change,” said Catherine Winder, ceo of Wind Sun Sky, and Annabel Slaight, founding chair non-profit, the Ontario Water Center.

“The board’s collective expertise and passion for both children’s media and climate issues will be instrumental in expanding awareness, creating partnership opportunities, and most importantly amplifying our impact with children.”

Earlier this year, Wind Sun Sky Entertainment partnered with the family streaming outfit Da Vinci to expand the reach of Future Chicken around the globe.

Expanding the brand’s reach into global territories, Da Vinci will distribute Future Chicken’s shortform content on its kids’ services that reaches over 250 million households globally. In addition, Da Vinci will be creating quizzes as part of their popular Kahoot! offering, a game-based learning platform filled with trivia quizzes that make learning fun which recently surpassed 1.5 million players.

Of this partnership, Catherine, added: “The world can be a scary place, especially for kids, and our goal is to help educate and empower them through humor and positivity about the climate positive changes being made to our planet for their future. This partnership with Da Vinci is a giant step forward in helping to make this a more global message and movement.”
