Local Language comics are good awareness material
If we create more comics then we can use them in the awareness sessions. The community doesn’t know about mangroves and what they can do. We have published books but people are afraid to see books. If we give them books they say – Oh we have to go through so many pages. Through comics, we can easily expose our ideas and people can easily understand through pictures and little information. Books are generally more complex than comics while comics are easily reachable. Some of the issues we can tackle through comics are – 1. Social and economic value of mangroves 2. Benefits of mangroves 3. How all other things are dependent on mangroves 4. Important duties of mangroves Instead of doing it in English, we can make awareness content in Tamil and comics offer that scope to all of us to work in Tamil.
