UNECE "Humans Locked Down Nature Unlocked" Photography Contest

UNECE is offering a photo contest on the theme of Human Locked Down, Nature Unlocked, as The COVID-19 outbreak is a tragic moment in human history. The pandemic has claimed many lives and continues to have an extremely negative impact on our economies and societies. It came suddenly and forced many of us into lockdown. This long period of isolation made us reflect on the vulnerability of our society and on the need to #buildbackbetter, including by promoting biodiversity and the restoration of ecosystems.

The sights of nature during lockdown kept us positive, reminding us of nature's beauty and power. While locked down at home, we have seen some remarkable images of animals walking through deserted cities, ducks and dolphins reappearing in canals and nearing shores, birds settling in gardens, butterflies flying undisturbed, plants growing in the cracks of empty streets. Images like these are unique and historical.

We know many of you have immortalized these scenes with your cameras and smart phones. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, based in Geneva, is inviting you to share your images.
