TED Countdown, a global initiative to address the climate crisis, and image-based outreach project Climate Visuals have joined forces, with a goal to build a collection of evidence-based photos that document the reality of climate change around the world – and your photography can help them do it.

Through 'Visualizing Climate Change: An Open Call for Photography' the partnership seeks submissions that communicate positive climate solutions in five key areas: energy, transport, materials, food, nature.
