Open now through November 15, 2011
The Competition: In the run-up to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP 17) in Durban, South Africa this December, Connect4Climate is launching a photo and video challenge on climate change targeted to African youth in collaboration with Facebook. African youth from the ages of 13 to 30 are invited to share their personal climate change stories around six themes:
Through photos and short videos, young Africans will tell us how climate change is affecting their lives, families, communities and environments. If they have innovative ideas for local solutions, we hope to see and hear these stories, too! The best entries will receive prizes at a high-profile award ceremony and will be exhibited at COP17 in Durban. World leaders and prominent climate change thinkers will get a chance to look, listen, and learn about these climate stories generated by African youth.
You can upload your photos or videos through our Facebook page by clicking “Enter Competition.” You can also send your photos and videos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, date of birth, title and caption of your photo or video, and where your photo or video was taken.
