ECO2 Smart Schools Climate Conference Photography Competition

Photography Competition

As part of the ECO2 Smart Schools Climate Conference, students had the exciting opportunity to take part in the photography competition. They could submit a photograph showing either:

  • An image of concern – that depicted their thoughts and feelings about climate change.
  • An image of hope – that demonstrated the actions that they / their school / their family is taking to combat climate change.
Each of the winners received an exciting prize. The two UK winners will be attending COP26 in Glasgow on Youth Day (Friday 5th November) – the prize includes entry to the Green Zone, overnight accommodation and rail travel to and from the event. As it would not have been sustainable to fly the two international winners out to COP26, they will receive an exciting package of sustainable goodies.
