Our Other Mother

This stunning campaign was started in 2021 by parent climate groups and children’s illustrators, who are worried about climate change and want to push for a brighter, safer future for our children. 

It kicked off for the March 14 UK Mother’s Day with iconic British illustrators Jim Field of Oi Frog! and Rebecca Cobb of Paper Dolls, and was launched there by parent climate groups – Our Kids’ ClimateParents For Future UKMother’s Rise Up – and illustrator networks, Kid Lit For Climate and EditArtz.
