Climate Visuals images hung on the walls at the COP26 Climate Talks in Glasgow last year – overlooking world leaders and delegates.
The photography exhibits featured prominently in some of the most influential negotiating spaces at the conference in the so-called ‘Blue Zone’ (the Leaders Lounge; the main thoroughfare connecting delegate meeting rooms; and the Catering and Coffee area) as well as the ‘Green Zone.’
The exhibits showcased impactful, diverse photography showing what climate change really looks like around the world. The collection was curated from several sources, including:
- our open call for photography in collaboration with TED Countdown which attracted submissions from photographers in over 150 countries and has resulted in 100 images freely available to global editorial media, educators and campaigners
- our collaborative web resource on Indigenous media presence, which provides 8 recommendations for the media to achieve a lasting, positive, and impactful media presence for Indigenous peoples
- images from an upcoming project with Natural England aiming to increase engagement with nature and climate through diversifying representation in English nature imagery
