Category: Edition 2021

The MeteoHeroes are six kids who in six distant points of the planet discover they have special powers: each of them can trigger an atmospheric agent. Thanks to their powers, Nix, Fulmen, Pluvia, Thermo, Nubess and Ventum collaborate with the Weather Expert Center on the Gran Sasso d’Abruzzo to save Earth from global warming and pollution. Their guides are Tempus, an artificial intelligence, and scientist Margherita Rita, whose name pays homage to two great women of science, Margherita Hack and Rita Levi Montalcini. Respect for the environment and nature, friendship, the importance of knowledge, solidarity, inclusiveness and gender equality: these are the values ​​of the MeteoHeroes. Each episode is inspired by a news story which really happened and is documented by videos and photos. The project is under the patronage of the MiUR, of the Ministry of the Environment and of Legambiente. The meteorologist Andrea Giuliacci also appears in the TV series. He is also one of the project’s scientific consultants and testimonial of the importance of climatology in the education of children. The cartoon is being broadcast on Cartoonito.
