The goal of #CreateCOP25 was to collate rich and diverse visual stories on climate change, and to engage the mainstream on issues that often feel overwhelming, terrifying, or just too far away to fully comprehend.
The judges were impressed by the creativity and visual quality of the submissions. Hundreds of young creatives from 40 countries submitted work ranging from fashion design and sculpture to film and photography.
We are still a long way from where we need to be. The next two COPS (COP25 in Madrid this December, and COP26 in Glasgow next year) are critical to ensure countries submit enhanced climate pledges to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. These works represent just some of the many calls for climate action from the fashion and arts community.
