The Face of Climate Change
Every year on April 22, individuals and communities across the globe come together to celebrate Earth Day, sharing a united aim to safeguard the environment and protect our planet.
More than one billion people around the world are expected to take part in the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day, and this year's theme is The Face of Climate Change.
Various aspects of climate change are causing damage to the ecosystems and natural resources we need to survive. This has knock-on effects for both people and animals – from the polar bear in the melting arctic, to the tiger in India's diminishing mangrove forests.
The organisers of the Earth Day campaign are making a montage of images of people, animals, and places directly affected or threatened by climate change, as well as images of people stepping up to do something about it.
Anyone who wishes to take part is invited to upload their own photo depicting The Face of Climate Change.
An interactive display of these images will be shown at thousands of events around the world, and will also be available to view online. This will showcase the collective power of all those taking action in the fight against climate change.
