Creator of the series, Stephanie K. Nihon, who was named by Disrupter’s Magazine as one of the top ten entrepreneurs disrupting their industries in 2024 says, ‘The Goombay Kids are the perfect climate ambassadors. We are very vulnerable in The Bahamas and Caribbean to climate change and children are the future guardians of our planet. It is imperative we cultivate a generation of environmentally conscious and proactive global citizens.’

The Right Honorable Philip Davis, the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, known for being a climate forward leader, stated at COP28,  ‘The Bahamas is in the top ten countries most vulnerable to climate change. Time is a luxury we do not have.’ One of the main concerns for The Bahamas is to mitigate coastal erosion, a consequence that will lead to the disappearance of some Caribbean islands by the 2100s.

Goombay Kids is one of the only children’s shows in the world promoting climate solutions through its magical storytelling, environmentally friendly folklore-based characters and educational segments. The production highlights impactful topics such as ocean conservation, healthy ecosystems, sustainability and preserving biodiversity. Nihon adds that, ‘By understanding the causes and effects of climate change, children can develop a deeper appreciation for their environment and in turn empower them to take positive action and foster a sense of environmental responsibility and stewardship.’

Goombay Kids aims to partner further with NGO’s to encourage children to engage in discussions about innovative solutions and empower them to make informed choices about sustainable living, conservation efforts, and advocating for policies that protect our planet’s future.
