Local focus, global challenges

Enter the Sustainable Earth Institute photography competition and have the chance to win a £100 photography voucher! 

Sustainability challenges are global, but affect us locally.

Rail lines under increasing threat as sea levels rise, meaning South West of England could be disrupted for more than 10% of each year by 2040, bee numbers in decline globally due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and disease, and tiny plastic microbeads being released into waste water during each use of a domestic washing machine, with many of them likely to pass through sewage treatment and into the environment. These are some of the greatest sustainability challenges we face today.

The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on Friday 31 March 2017.

More information including submission instructions can be found on the competition webpage.
