The Lyfta globe
A Camel's Companion
Mohamed is a bedouin who lives in the South Sinai Desert in Egypt. He introduces us to his caravan of camels, an animal we learn he has been drawn to from a very young age. Mohamed also shows us how he makes a living by offering rides to tourists. However, his camels' well-being is important to him so he ensures they are never overworked and only those that are rested are taken for rides.
In this storyworld we meet Wei Wei in China, the only female LEGO Certified Professional in the world. She is passionate about building LEGO and a concept called 'playable design'.
Wei Wei hosts 'Brick by Brick' an educational, art event in which the kids and adults build with LEGO as a collective. For her latest event, the group is creating a 19x19 metres mandala; a circular design made up of geometric shapes and patterns.
Marine biologist Paula is researching ocean bird populations off the coast of Galicia, northern Spain. Paula and her team are set up on a remote island studying the shearwater bird species. In this storyworld we learn of the current plight of seabirds and threat to their numbers. From climate change impacting migratory patterns, to pollution of the seas, seabirds' ocean homes are in dire need of our protection.
