Tobies Friends 

1.1.2023 - 1.1.2025 (CREA-CULT-2022-COOP-101099012)

What is about

In order to find a solution to the continuous production of polluting products derived from films, books or video games, project Tobies friends is creating totally new derivative products for young people from 4 to 15 years old, which consist in putting culture at the service of nature through 3 axes: raising awareness, educating, acting with children up to planting trees.

Objective is to bring to life the ecological and inclusive message of Tobie Lolness (a character from the animated series) through concrete actions.

Families want to do something for the planet, to raise awareness and get their children involved, but don't know how. Three partners: Italian, Slovenian and Franch will create several simple and effective solutions, which will be tested for two years.


The Tobie's Friends project is based on the story, on inspiring archetypes, on getting children to take action and on giving them the means to do so thanks to a collaborative European structure bringing together a network of actors already in place.

Tobies Friends

Creating a new book Nature has a heart

In 2016, the Jasa Association received the Časnik Finance award for the most apparent eco-project, for the book The Earth Has a Heart.


This is a book that awakens the emotions of the readers and leaves a mark, as it is imbued with wisdom and beauty and delivered in a perceptive way.


It was created by the pure hearts of children, top experts in the field of ecology and good connoisseurs of life (Lučka Kajfež Bogataj, Anton Komat, Peter Novak, Marinka Vovk, Mateja Leskovar, Karmen Pahor...).


That is why the book The Earth has a heart also convinced the European Commission.


In the EU project Tobies Friends, will be crated a simpler version of it - a picture book: Nature has a heart.


It will be written in such a way that children aged 8-15 can read it on their own. Didactic tasks and games will also be added, which will help children to deepen understanding of ecology. Namely in Slovenian, English, French and Italian.



It will include ten chapters: Ecology; Biodiversity; Human needs and nature; Air; Water; Soil; Animals; Forest; Human vices and nature; Living in harmony with nature.


And it will be illustrated with pictures from the Tobi Lolness books and cartoons.
