Our three areas of action aim to fulfil this mission through the use of engaging communication, education and training resources and products.
promoting environmental awareness
The Captain Polo Academy
The Captain Polo Academy reflects the different areas of action in which conservationist and author Alan J. Hesse is able to most effectively fulfill his mission.
Who is Captain Polo?
Captain Polo is the hero of Alan’s growing collection of educational children’s books about climate change. As a cartoon polar bear on a mission he is the perfect messenger for his creator’s particular approach to promoting environmental awareness, climate action, and conservation impact around the world.
Cartoons for hire
Using cartoons to communicate visually about things that matter is one of our main areas of action. Check out the cartoon portfolio!
Climate change is the most serious global issue of our time and kids need to know the facts and the solutions. Check out Captain Polo’s School Projects!
your own comic
Making your own comic isn’t as hard as you might think, and teachers can really engage their students with this form of expression. Let us show you how!
Establishing new social norms is how people change their behaviour over time. We offer Social Marketing training to help conservationists and local communities work together more effectively.
Graphic novels about climate change
‘The Adventures of Captain Polo’ is a multi-award-winning series of graphic novels and children’s picture books that explore the causes, effects and actions to fight climate change around the world.
