We're really proud and excited to share our YUYU project! While working on an Asian children's gallery project about the love for rivers, we came to think about how we - as creative designers - could contribute to the problem of river pollution. Because still everyday, tons of waste, micro plastics and other pollutants flow from rivers to the oceans, destroying our natural ecosystem.
YUYU: River Education Islands
That's how YUYU was born. YUYUs are educational river islands where local children are empowered to be part of the solution for river pollution through classes and creative workshops. Imagine the coolest river school, floating on water, where learning is fun and children become real life river hero's?! Instead of treating the symptoms like most initiatives, YUYU moves the solution upstream: from cleaning up the rivers to not polluting them at all.
Please support this donation campaign for building the first YUYU in Surabaya, Java (Indonesia). Here, YUYU will be located in the heavily polluted Brantas rivier. It will be managed by local environmental organizations and provide an inspiring surrounding to host their classes and hands-on river activities. These local organizations do truly amazing work in the fight against river pollution and in educating children from Javanese communities about how important it is to keep the rivers clean. Every donation made will go directly to the funding and construction of YUYU Surabaya.
YUYU is an initiative by Dutch creative agency NorthernLight, together with co-founder and environmental specialist Christa Nooy (Makara). Our dream is to set up a global network of YUYUs all over the world, both in Asian and Western countries. Because river pollution is a global problem that we have to face together.
