Synopsis
 
During this time, we developed many productions with environmental themes, including :

- ecology for 3 to 7 year olds
- sustainable energy systems, showing 800 million years in 6 scenes
- an international giant who eats trees
- a desert charcoal burner sees the light after capture by pirates and journey around the world
- River conservation on the Teifi.
All these shows were for young audiences and used puppetry and actors.

Other projects include :
1987
puppetry and conflict resolution in Khartoum, Sudan with the United Nations FAO. Field trials for conflict resolution with feuding nomadic tribes using puppetry to help work out grazing rights in the forests

1985

Environmental and Community Forest Theatre
Training in Sudan for S.O.S. Sahel Village extension scheme developing a performance to stimulate participation in Community Forestry using theatre for development education, puppetry, drama, storytelling.

One million trees were planted, and a women' project generating income initiated. A shelter belt, wood lots, amenity forests were started, fruit trees were planted. Educational projects on horticulture, story, culture, social mobilisation, participation were integral. The project was given the UN Dry Lands Award. Prior to 1975, no puppet tradition or practice existed in the region, and it spawned a national puppetry festival.
