Climate change may be one of the most complex issues we are facing today. However, solutions do exist to reduce our carbon footprint and protect us from climate change. Apart from infrastructures and technological advances, many of us are adjusting our lifestyles and learning to cope with some of the impacts, such as extreme temperatures.
Show what an individual, a community, a city or a country, or an economic sector (e.g.: transport, forestry, agriculture) do to stop, slow down or adapt to climate change
Our climate is changing. We might not be aware of it, but climate change affects us all. For this year’s photo competition, the European Environment Agency (EEA) invites you to capture what it means to live in a changing climate in Europe, to share your take on climate change.
The scientific evidence is clear. Floods, landslides, droughts and wildfires have become more frequent and intense. And these changes are caused by greenhouse gases released to the atmosphere by human activities, mainly through combustion of fossil fuels and changes in land use.
Open to citizens of the EU 27 Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey; under the stabilisation and association agreements: North Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
