Did you know that there's a connection between climate change and digital animation? 

A few months ago, students from Bonnie Mitchell's Collaborative Digital Art Development class in the School of Art created a series of animated public service announcements about climate issues plaguing our society today. Some of the topics included plastic pollution, clean energy community action and filtering agricultural runoff to mitigate climate change. The animated PSAs were designed to help Algalita, Ohio Citizen Action Group and the Black Swamp Conservancy. 

“How do we help these organizations communicate their message in a manner that is appealing and effective?” Mitchell asked her students.
