Cloud Nasara (Klaod Nasara; Nasara de Nuages)

An animation and toolkit in three languages (Bislama, English and French) which raises awareness of the science and impacts of El Niño and La Niña in Vanuatu and encourages the people of Vanuatu to take early action in preparing for these extreme events. 

The Cloud Nasara animation tells the story of a cloud meeting place, floating high above the Pacific, and its interactions with a small island village, inhabited by a colourful cast of characters, including a reggae-obsessed parrot and a string band.

The animation comes with a resource ‘tool kit’ in three languages to help facilitators link the information in the film with smart decision-making and action on the ground. The toolkit includes bingo cards, picture cards, a PowerPoint presentation and an Action Handbook.

You can screen the animation in your community or workplace. It can be streamed from the Pacific Climate Change website, via YouTube, or downloaded in high resolution (61MB) or low resolution (12MB) versions.
