The Global Landscapes Forum now accepting applications for the GLF Climate 2022 Photo Competition.
Send us your best pictures on how the climate crisis is impacting your landscape – or how your local community is dealing with it. Whether it’s a story on drought, floods and other climate disasters, or how people are acting to reverse rising temperatures, they want the world to see it.
- Restoring landscapes: They can’t fix climate change without bringing degraded landscapes back to life and protecting their natural environment.
- Resilient and regenerative adaptation: It may be too late to prevent climate change, but they can still protect ourselves from its worst effects by building resilience.
- Community action and land rights: Indigenous Peoples and local communities must be at the heart of climate action, but they need land rights to make that happen.
- Social and environmental justice: There’s no climate justice without social justice. How can they protect the most vulnerable people from the effects of climate change?
- Innovative climate finance solutions: Less than 3% of climate finance flows to small farmers and local communities. It’s time for financiers to rise to the challenge and green their portfolios.
- Cash prizes of USD 400 (1st place), USD 300 (2nd place) and USD 200 (popular vote).
- A spread and interview in Landscape News.
- A showcase at the GLF Climate 2022 Art Gallery.
