#WeAreClimateChange Photography Competition

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) — is pleased to announce the winners of the #WeAreClimateChange photography competition culminating at the 2017 United Nations Climate Change Summit, COP-23 in Bonn, Germany 6 – 17 November 2017.

UN-Habitat invited young photographers to visually represent efforts to combat climate change in their communities.

The award recognizes individual youth who have made photo submissions in the last month showcasing positive climate change initiatives in their city or town.

The winner of this contest is sponsored to a fully funded trip to Bonn, Germany to present their work.

UN-Habitat received hundreds of photo submissions that were screened out by a panel of four high level judges in the photography industry and UN-Habitat climate change and youth teams.
