Entries are invited for the SCHEMA/Think City THRIVE: Connect Photo Contest & Exhibition. The photo contest asks you to find and capture SDG linkages in Malaysian cities. Photographs of high aesthetic quality in terms of both image composition and in the use of the medium that highlight connections between SDG 11 on sustainable cities and communities and any other SDG are sought for. For example, your picture might show the links between urbanization and clean food or water, decent work, or climate change in Malaysian cities.
These photos will be used to tell a story about how critical connections are to healthy, sustainable communities, and how recognizing them will help us achieve the SDGs. Help the organizers see the connections you see between SDG 11 and the other SDGs. Take a look at the SDGs, and get snapping!
