In the run-up to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP 18) in Qatar this December 2012, the Voices4Climate Photo/Video/Music Video Competition invited young people, ages 13-35, from all over the world to submit photos, videos, and music videos that tell powerful climate change stories. More than 1000 submissions were received from 116 countries addressing questions such as: how is climate change affecting your country? Your community? You, your friends, and your family? Do you have a cool idea for a local solution?
The photo, video, and music video entries must tell a climate change story related to one of these eight categories:
1) Agriculture, 2) Energy, 3) Forests, 4) Gender, 5) Health, 6) Water, 7) Jobs and the Green Economy, 8) Cities.
See all the more than 1000 entries in our Facebook App.
