Below are comments from Kagawa.
[Teruyuki Kagawa (Executive Producer)]
The nature education picture book “INSECT LAND” will be announced in a pandemic that has made it difficult for us to put ourselves naturally.
I was keenly aware that society, the environment, and the economy are circulating in the Corona disaster, but I believe that the SDGs are to improve this circulation, and I especially want to contribute to the learning of children. I am.
Animating on E-Tele is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to contribute equally to children all over Japan.
Fun and cute characters drawn by French creator Thomas Romain convey “the power to live” through the ecology created by the evolution of 500 million years.
We hope that the insects of Insectland will help make the coexistence of humankind and this planet sustainable.
