Celebrating #All4TheGreen Instagram Photo Competition Blue Prize
The Blue Prize was awarded in June to Probal Rashid, from Bangladesh, by the World Bank's Water Global Practice to the best photo with the theme of ‘water.' The prize was for the winner to visit the UN General Assembly (UNGA) meetings and document certain events. Probal’s photo of a 9-year-old girl in Bangladesh, collecting rainwater to drink was the winner. Probal took numerous photos at UNGA throughout the week, many of which are being used in the Connect4Climate's Flickr album.
