It does not matter if you are a professional photographer, a photojournalist or an amateur photo enthusiast. Let’s zoom in and focus on the ways in which others make our lives better.

Selected photo-stories will be presented at the Climate Jamboree Finale scheduled from 1-3 November 2018 in front of 10,000 youth.
Sustained global economic growth remains an integral part of meeting the targets set as part of sustainable development goals. Socio-economic inequalities call for inclusive growth which is mindful of the dignity of the vulnerable, promotes safe working spaces for all and is focused on mainstreaming everyone into the society irrespective of their professions. Every day different people support and facilitate our lives in different ways. In an attempt to truly understand and empathise with the issues which surround them, we encourage you to depict the daily life of one such person (from one of the two given categories), societal perspective and other’s behaviour towards them through a story created using 4 photos and a short narrative.
Category 1: Home service providers (for example, a cook, domestic worker, gardener, waste collectors, electrician, etc.)
Category 2: Community service providers and behind-the-scene workers (for example, forest guards, sanitation workers, ragpickers, farmers, security guard etc.)
