The climate is changing... are you?
Friends of the Earth Malta is launching an international photographic exhibition and competition on the effects of climate change. The theme is: 'Climate Change: the change is already here.'
Science shows that the present state of our planet will not improve any time soon if we do not take action now. The biggest impacts will be on poor and developing countries, especially small island states. The biggest culprits of greenhouse gas emissions are developed countries.
FoE Malta is looking for photos illustrating damage caused by climate change - photos which capture what is being changed, damaged and lost both in the natural and human world.
They're looking for photos that illustrate the effects of climate change already influencing natural processes on our planet, affecting the lives of millions of people, disrupting animal habitats and eco-systems. And photos that show human beings as an integral part of the impact of climate change (i.e. ice-melting; flooding; desertification, drought) will be appreciated. Use your imagination when shooting and processing photos.
The deadline for the competition is August 9, 2009.
