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.

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.
