The winners are:

  1. Nikki Sandino Victoriano from the Philippines, who shares an impactful photo of a father imparting the invaluable lesson of environmental stewardship to his young daughter, teaching her to sow the seeds of a greener tomorrow.
  2. Rayhan Ahmed from Bangladesh, who takes us on a journey into the lives of the waste pickers dwelling in the heart of informal settlements in his country, portraying the contrast between a pile of garbage and a green open space.
  3. Stephen Ofori Amo from Ghana, who portrays how combined efforts of improved public transportation, collaborative action and initiatives like Green Ghana Day contribute to securing a more sustainable and greener urban landscape.

These and other photos will be exhibited at the 5th Capacity-building Hub at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, UAE.
