PENDAR VATANIAN

Pendar is the founder of MindYourFootprint!, a non-profit that has educated and empowered many children to become eco-warriors (or as they prefer, 'eco-subconscious') for more than a decade. They realised that sustainability education can become challenging, and so created an educational model to translate complicated sustainability issues into entertaining, engaging and interactive language through free resources for schools.

They are also the creator of the Climate Dice, a storytelling dice game that is designed to empower people to re-imagine an alternative better future. With every set of dice they sell, a set of dice is donated to schools in remote areas of the world (in Global South) where they estimate to reach and empower hundreds of children to dream and build their future, a future they live in peace and harmony with everyone on this planet.

At heart, I’m a storyteller; I’ve written a few story books for children and I’m about to finish my first non-fiction named ‘Eco-subconscious’.
