The website "Chimi's World ", developed by Prithvi Media, is inspired by Prithvi Media's animation movie "Chimi's Dream". The animation movie is about, ‘Chimi’, a young adolescent and central character, who falls asleep while playing in the jungle and has a dream that changes his life for ever. In that dream the animals from the jungle tell Chimi of the rapid destruction of their home, the jungle, by man. They also tell Chimi that they are organizing a ‘Green Parade’, to protest man’s destructive ways.When Chimi wakes up from this dream, his mind is ringing with the urgent message conveyed to him in that dream. At the same time, another thought takes hold of him. He begins to wonder about the ill-effects of such large-scale destruction. He resolves to try to remedy the situation by starting a movement called ‘Chimi’s Parade’, an idea borrowed from the Green Parade of the animals that came to him in his dream.
"Chimi's Dream" was launched in Delhi and in attendance were Mrs. Sheila Dixit, Chief Minister Delhi and well-known media and television personality Suhel Seth. Subsequently, Prithvi Media also put together for release the first in a series of encyclical edutainment dvds also called "Chimi's World". This edutainment dvd that incorporates a mix of education and entertainment includes the animation movie 'Chimi’s Dream' and other sections such as Interactive Story Telling, Expressive Artwork, Trees R Us, 3 R's Environmental Pledge and a groovy rap song. Plans are to release a new DVD with CHimi as the central character every 6 months Prithvi Media has won commendation from WWF which will share CHIMISWORLD dvd edutainment package among 570 schools they work with reaching out to sixty thousand schools they engage with through workshops, nature camps, etc.
The Media Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has also included the animation film "Chimi's Dream" in CMS Vatavaran's top 10 'green films' package for distribution in approximately twenty thousand schools. The Green Parade theme is central to Chimi’s green crusade as it is in keeping with his resolve to increase environmental awareness and the participation among Generation Next. The Chimi Parade in Panna, Madhya Pradesh was the first of many parades that have been envisaged to take place at different times across the country for the green movement to gather momentum.
Such parades have the potential to reach out to children in the real sense - meet them face to face. Prithvi Media urges schools to conduct such Green Parades to increase participation among children in the movement to make our planet a better and greener place. Prithvi Media visualizes a time soon to come when the green parade becomes a link, uniting children across such parades being conducted simultaneously all over the country.
'Chimi's World' is the first in a series of encyclical “edu-tainment” dvds for children comprising informative and entertaining segments for environmental awareness in education. This edutainment incorporates a mix of education and entertainment around the theme of the animation movie 'Chimi’sDream'. Sections in the DVD are Interactive Story Telling, Expressive Artwork, Trees R Us, 3 R's Environmental Pledge and a groovy rap song ! Prithvi Media plans to release such edutainment dvds every six months.
Chimi is the central character and larger overarching idea who has inspired the animation movie ‘Chimi’s Dream’, and the website 'Chimi's World'. The animation movie ‘Chimi’s Dream’, is about a dream Chimi has when he falls asleep while playing in the jungle that changes his life for ever. In that dream the animals from the jungle tell Chimi of the rapid destruction of their home, the jungle, by man. They also tell Chimi that they are organizing a ‘Green Parade’, to protest man’s destructive ways.
When Chimi wakes up from this dream, his mind is ringing with the urgent message conveyed to him in that dream. At the same time, another thought takes hold of him. He begins to wonder about the ill-effectsof such large-scale destruction and what his tomorrow will be like!
Chimi's World' is an endeavour on the part of Prithvi Media to channelize children's focus on what their world will be tomorrow! Tomorrow belongs to the children of today. Prithvi Media instills in young minds positive environmental values to enable them to take their role as world citizens. Value based content and ideas are presented to make each child feel responsible for their actions. Children must believe that their actions collectively will make a difference. For Prithvi Media, the culmination of its vision lies in the self-perpetuating nature of the values and ideals that its mascot Chimi embodies.
