#MyCleanEarth photo contest
Share a photo of what the world outside your door or window looks like and help UNICEF India’s work on addressing climate change.
What does the environment look like where you are living/staying during the COVID-19 lockdown and beyond? COVID-19 saw a dramatic change in the environment – pollution levels were lower in many places, many areas are cleaner and animals have re-claimed public spaces.
As we open up and unlock what does the environment look like now?
A clean environment, especially clean air is possible, but we need to do more! Show your support, share your concerns and ideas and let’s advocate together for more to be done. Let’s keep the momentum and awareness going through clicking and sharing our #MyCleanEarth photos.
What do I need to do?
Using a phone or camera take a photo of the environment around you – it might be the view from your window, balcony or door.
Please follow COVID-19 protocols and use a mask. Don’t leave your home if you don’t need to.
You might have taken some photos during lockdown too of blue skies and the environment around you - you can also submit these to us.
In case any people feature in the photo please make sure you ask permission to take and share their photo.
Submit your photo using the form below. You can also share on your social media channels, tag @UNICEFIndia and use #MyCleanEarth.
