Wander Magazine

Our third issue of Wander magazine focuses on Earth Day. Throughout the pandemic lockdown, many of us have strengthened our bonds to nature, as we have realized how fragile and connected we all are. With that in mind, we asked this group of creative women and girls – from six countries to share their illustrated thoughts about Earth Day. Some of that work serves as a celebration, while others used their art to provide a caution about how we care for Mother Earth. We invite you to take some time to reflect on how you might lighten your footprint in the coming year – while enjoying the magic and majesty right outside.

PAY TRIBUTE

TO EARTH DAY

SPRING 2021


t

hroughout the pandemic lockdown,

many of us have strengthened our bonds

to nature, as we have realized how fragile

and connected we all are.

With that in mind, we asked this group

of creative women and girls – from

six countries to share their illustrated

thoughts about Earth Day.

Some of that work serves as a celebration,

while others used their art to provide

a caution about how we care for

Mother Earth.

We invite you to take some time to reflect

on how you might lighten your footprint in

the coming year – while enjoying the magic

and majesty right outside.

We wish you a wonderful 2021.

Then, the world fills with love.”
