Toby’s Friends

The project dedicated to sustainability and environmental protection.

Toby’s Friends is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union dedicated to children and created with the aim of offering them storytelling products about nature, but also experiences of interaction and socialization.


The activities of the Toby’s Friends project include:

  • highlighting the wonders of woods and forests;
  • conveying, educating and providing the tools to understand the importance of trees;
  • acting through planting and maintenance activities in natural areas.

To achieve these important objectives, all European project partners join forces in a stimulating combination and sharing of good practices both in the field of education and in the field of sustainable development and environmental protection.

Project partners:

  • TANT MIEUX PROD (France) – coordinator;
  • Explora, the Children’s Museum of Rome (Italy);
  • Drustvo Jasa (Slovenia).

The project envisages the production of audiovisual material to raise public awareness in favour of a responsible approach to nature.
In particular, a TV series dedicated to the climate, the environment and ecology will be produced, with reflections on the economy as Europe’s current priorities.
The Toby’s Friend series is an eco-fiction about Tobie Lolness, the protagonist of a fictional story who lives in a microcosm populated by elves, fairies and gnomes, apprehensive about the fate of an environment threatened by pollution and climate change.
The special feature of all audiovisual products is the focus in the production phase on alternative and more sustainable approaches, with the future of the Planet and audiences in all countries in mind. Toby’s Friends will not only provide its audience with food for thought, but will also help facilitate the transition to active participation of European families.

Explora contributes to the project through the creation and concrete implementation of different proposals such as:

  • the creation and realization of four workshops about the seasons;
  • the realization of four indoor and outdoor activities about the environment;
  • the setting up of a temporary exhibition about trees, forests and the environment reaching the general public.

5 tips to celebrate Earth Day every day

April 22nd is Earth Day, an event celebrating the environment all around the world; this year marked its 50th anniversary.

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970: that day nearly 20 million people took to the streets to march for a safer planet.
Since that day, every year, citizens together with agencies, organisations and the UN, have been setting up marches and events to raise awareness of environmental issues and the protection of the Earth.

Explora also celebrates Earth Day and provides 5 tips to find out how small actions can make the difference for the future of our planet, a common gift that we all share and that makes our lives all the more valuable.

Happy Earth Day!

Water is a valuable asset: let’s save it in our daily life when having a shower, brushing our teeth, or watering the garden.


Recycling means turning an item into raw materials which can be used again for a completely new product; our duty is to properly follow this first step, which is sorting out waste. 


 Not all materials need to be recycled: you may turn them into creative objects giving free rein to your imagination.


Sow, plant and take care of green plants at home, at school or in your district: trees are essential for our life and the future of our planet.


A kitchen is an ideal space to understand “conscious consumption” and learn how to avoid wasting: products are like “windows to the world”, they tell us stories of distant and near places, people, relationships, choices and values.
