Following the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, delegates called for the creation of a civil society organization to deliver global environmental solutions, a ‘Red Cross for the environment.’ This led to the creation of the Green Cross which was launched in 1993.
Every year since 2011, the Green Cross has organised ‘The Future We Want’, a photo exhibition which aims to show possible solutions for clean energy, water and food security, and sustainable livelihoods. The 2017 exhibition will be shown along the Quai Wilson on Geneva’s lakefront from the 5th to the 30th of September, at the United Nations and at the COP23 at the Climate Change Forum in Germany.
The work of eight Webster University Geneva students was selected to be part of this photography exhibition. The images were taken in Tuscany as part of a research project on eco-villages.
My students’ work and one of my images were exhibited in the show.
HERE you can see a video of the exhibition on the lake.
