Seen through the lens of the world’s younger generation, their interpretation of climate change will be all the more poignant.

“The Paris Climate Agreement was a resounding success. But the agreement itself was only the first step. It now needs to be signed, ratified and implemented by all governments. For speedy and effective implementation, we need the full support of all sectors of society. Photography and art can play a key role in visually highlighting the impacts of climate change and the many possibilities of effective climate action,” said Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC.

The competition was created by landscape photographer Henry Dallal, founder of the Addressing Climate Change Project, and endorsed by the Secretariat of the UNFCCC and is being launched as governments prepare to sign the historic Paris Climate Change Agreement at a special ceremony in New York on 22 April.

Managed by the Lucie Foundation, the Competition will be open internationally to all youths aged 7 to 18. In today’s world, where photography is an increasingly accessible medium, participants need only a mobile phone to capture powerful images of the effects of climate change.

Selected images will be exhibited within the Blue Zone at the United Nations Climate Summit (COP22) in Marrakech (7-18 November) to delegates from all over the globe.

“Young people are critical in this global effort to address climate change. Having photographed the UN Climate Change conferences for many years, I became inspired to create a global competition involving the younger generation, our future climate custodians, at a grassroots level,” said Henry Dallal, acclaimed photographer and founder of the Addressing Climate Change Project.

About the UNFCCC

With 196 Parties, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has near universal membership and is the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol has been ratified by 192 of the UNFCCC Parties. For the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, 37 States, consisting of highly industrialized countries and countries undergoing the process of transition to a market economy, have legally binding emission limitation and reduction commitments. In Doha in 2012, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol adopted an amendment to the Kyoto Protocol, which establishes the second commitment period under the Protocol. The ultimate objective of both treaties is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system.
