Many of goods and services contributing to our quality of life and well-being exert pressure on the environment and global climate. The way we consume and produce (and discard) these goods and services releases pollutants, damages natural habitats and contributes to climate change – all which in turn harm our health and life on Earth. In fact, supported by over-arching European Union policies, many authorities and organisations across Europe are already taking action to reduce negative impacts. To highlight the importance of living sustainably, the European Environment Agency (EEA) is organising the photography competition Sustainably Yours.
Every year, the EEA organises a photo competition to raise awareness about an environmental issue and allow Europeans to share their takes on that issue. This year’s competition Sustainably Yours focuses on the importance of living sustainably.
Sustainably Yours aims to highlight challenges and opportunities linked to three of the main key systems: food, energy and mobility.
Submission deadline: 15 May 2019 at 23:59 (CEST). Entry is free of charge.
