THE COMPETITION: Connect4Climate will launch a photo and video challenge in September 2011 focused on Africa. Young people from the ages of 13 to 30 are invited to share their ...personal stories around six themes:
1. Clean Energy
4. Health and Climate Change
5. Gender and Climate Change
6. Local solutions
Through photos and/or short videos (60 seconds or less), participants will share ideas, present solutions and show how climate change is affecting their lives, families, communities and environment in Africa.
The best entries will receive prizes at a high-profile awards ceremony and be exhibited at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Durban, South Africa this December.
