A Climate For Life focuses on the global challenge of climate change and suggests ways to dramatically reduce risks to human health, economic prosperity and the planet’s irreplaceable biological diversity.
A Climate for Life exhibition is a facet of the A Climate for Life campaign and consists of 35 images from the International League of Conservation Photographers. Powerfully combining compelling images and essays into a beautiful volume, A Climate for Life is the result of leading scientists and veteran photographers contributing their talents to showcase the topics, issues, and challenges that society must urgently face. The A Climate for Life book creates a lasting impression that ultimately the responsibility to save the earth is literally and figuratively in our hands.
The International League of Conservation Photographers is a consortium of some of the best photographers in the world working for conservation.
