Climate Change and photography

How is climate change changing lives? How photography as a medium can improve and innovate climate change communication and contribute to the climate transition?

Ed Kashi has been at the forefront of new approaches to visual storytelling for 40 years, documenting many of the social and geopolitical issues that define our times. His work has contributed to the success of @EverydayClimateChange.

The critically acclaimed, award-winning photojournalist and filmmaker joined in dialogue with the outstanding science and data journalist Elisabetta Tola and embarked the public on a journey around the world through his images.

How important it is also to show that we can do something about it! That is how you inspire people, especially our youth. That’s how we inspire them to get involved, to be engaged.
