Raising awareness through art and humour

Ibstock Throbgoblins International provides not-for-profit, topical news-based cartoons highlighting connections between individual choices, collective actions, government/business activity and climate change. The strips use edgy humour to alert readers to issues, events and legislation through links to news stories and websites. The intention is to normalise climate change issues as a matter for everyday concern and engage a public often put off by a more formal approach, and encourage them to take action.
