Viking Fader said the goal of the piece was to promote environmental artistic practices capable of merging skill acquisition, awareness and active involvement in environmental solutions and outreach.

Users of the island’s youth drop-in centre pitched in too, lending a hand with creative tasks involved in fashioning the mural’s lower section. The artist described the initiative as part of an effort to “build interest, awareness and team spirit around ecological engagement”.
