What do we expect?

Show us and tell us through your photos what the world struggle for the protection of the ozone layer means to you, what impact the depletion of the ozone layer has on human health and the environment, and what measures are being undertaken in your country.

Through the photos, you might also wish to express your creative vision of the most pressing problem of nowadays – global climate change. Capture the moments that inform about the environmental challenge louder than words, show how climate change has affected the quality and standard of living of people, what are the consequences of climate change for humanity. Perhaps you might also demonstrate that struggle against climate change is not a burden at the time of tremendous opportunity for every country in the world.
