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.

Addressing Climate Change

New Book “Pictures” a Better World Through Negotiation

Royal Photographer Henry Dallal Focuses on Climate Change Talks, With A Little Help from Michael Douglas, Ed Norton, Yoko Ono, and Ban Ki-moon

Addressing-Climate-Change8th September 2014 (New York, NY)—In a stunning, timely new book that captures the art, science, and diversity of climate change negotiations, award-winning royal photographer Henry Dallal aims to humanize an arduous, largely-behind-the-scenes process and rally the world towards a global agreement.

Continue Reading

The September 28th release of Addressing Climate Change: An Illustrated Biography of the Annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (Gilgamesh Publishing) is being supported by a series of high-profile, eco-friendly launch events later this month in New York during the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit and General Assembly, including a major photo exhibit at the UN and a dinner/discussion at the Hearst Tower, New York’s first LEED-certified corporate building.

Academy Award-winning actor Michael Douglas, actor Ed Norton, artist Yoko Ono, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and Chair of the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Dr. R K Pachauri, are among those who have endorsed the book and its inspiring approach.

According to Michael Douglas, “By focusing his sharp lens on the negotiators, the activists, and the scientists, Henry Dallal shows us that climate change not only represents a monumental threat, but an unprecedented opportunity to resolve crises peacefully, through dialogue.”

Addressing Climate Change is drawn from tens of thousands of photos taken in Doha, Qatar and Warsaw, Poland where Dallal led a team of international photographers who were granted unprecedented and unlimited behind-the-scenes to the UN climate change negotiations during COP18 and COP19. These photos now represent the first inside look at the never-before-seen drama as international leaders from governments, civil society, academia and business make significant progress towards a universal climate change agreement.

“It was amazing to witness the balancing of interests and concerns international climate change negotiations require that may at first blush appear to be in conflict,” says Dallal. “This book reflects how all of these voices and perspectives are integrated into an inclusive process for progress on this global challenge, and is a call to action to all those who have a stake in their outcome: every man, woman, and child on earth.”

Prominent environmental activist and actor Ed Norton adds, “This book celebrates those who have dedicated their lives to addressing the seemingly impossible challenge of crafting international policy on this issue and should motivate the rest of us to take part in one of the most critical issues facing our generation.”

“Love is powerful in all things,” says musician, artist, and activist Yoko Ono. “It is powerful in this beautiful book of photos. (Love) is a word that makes things come together, grow and expand. Now we are in a position as a global community to come together and build a better future. Let’s do it right. I know we will.”

And UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who contributes a foreword to the book, notes, “This collection of photographs sheds light on the important work taking place within this collaborative arena.”

All proceeds of Addressing Climate Change’s sales are being donated to non-profit initiatives that help to address climate issues at a grassroots level, including Reach Out to Asia and others.

About Addressing Climate Change

When the State of Qatar was selected to host the 18th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (commonly referred to as “COP18”) in 2012, a team of international photographers was for the first time given unlimited behind-the-scenes access to the event – an unprecedented opportunity to capture the inner workings of the complicated and high stakes negotiations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help nations adapt to the impacts of global climate change such as rising sea levels, threats to food production and loss of biodiversity.

Led by renowned photographer Henry Dallal, they captured the drama as international leaders from governments, civil society, academia and business negotiated a critical package of agreements known as the “Doha Climate Gateway” and made significant progress towards the universal agreement that will be brought to Paris in 2015. Drawn from tens of thousands of images from both COP18 and COP19 in Warsaw, Poland, the book celebrates leaders from government, civil society, academia, NGOs and youth organizations who continue to drive progress under the framework of the UN to reach a global agreement on the future of our common home.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres and COP18 President H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah have each provided essays as forewords. The book concludes with a serious look at the challenge ahead by IPCC Chair and Nobel Laureate Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri.
