EcoPreneurship Curriculum & Animation

EcoRise hired me to author EcoPreneurship: a grade 9–12 curriculum that introduces students to entrepreneurship and sustainability through the lens of design thinking. As a designer with a passion for social entrepreneurship, I wanted EcoPreneurship to be an engaging learning experience. The lessons are designed to inspire students to believe they can change the world. I completed the project by creating a fun animation that tells the story of an EcoPreneurship student.

The lessons are written through the lens of the student's experience as they work through their own entrepreneurial journey.

Because it's student-first, entrepreneurship becomes demystified and presented in a manner that's simple and relatable to a young audience. Knowing that the entrepreneurial journey is an interconnected, non-linear web of experiences, I drew the units on parchment paper, which helped to illustrate the curriculum's arc and student experience.

This is Benny, EcoPreneurship's mascot. I scanned my co-workers hand-drawings into illustrator, and then animated the vectors in After Effects. I also created the video's intro/outro, which creates a nice bookend.

EcoPreneurship integrates real-world case studies and the most current business strategies and thought-leadership.
