You are drawn by multiple and various things every day, trifling details, massive changes or just a slice of our beautiful planet that takes your attention for a small fraction of a second. Are you eager to share your own reality that is affected by climate change? Have you met someone taking action on global warming? Our common home is changing, and so are our lives. We have a special challenge for you: capture that moment, landscape, idea, solution or person that is raising awareness and taking on climate change.

Every week we will announce a different theme in order for you to share your climate story with us. Join the Connect4Climate weekly Instagram challenge and get a chance to be featured on our Instagram page, @Connect4Climate, on Facebook and Twitter, and on our newsletter and website.

How does it work?

1. Follow @Connect4Climate on Instagram

2. Take a photo related to the weekly theme, and share it on Instagram. The photo must be original – i.e. you must be the photographer. Your photos are governed under the Instagram terms of use.

3. In the caption describe your climate photo, where it was taken, and why it means something to you.

4. Use the hashtag #Photo4Climate. Don’t forget to set your account to “public”.
