Isn’t nature full of wonders? No matter where we are, we can always appreciate its beauty. Have you ever sat near a quiet lake in a mountain, watched sparrows nesting in your garden or a tiny herb seedling grow on your kitchen windowsill? Taking in nature in all its beautiful shapes and forms can bring us a lot of joy – now possibly more than ever.
The European Environment Agency is inviting you to reconnect with nature and capture all its wonders on camera. So grab your cameras and go for a hike on a local trail or relax in your garden and observe the tree leaves bending or the fluffy clouds floating in the sky. Be curious and discover the parts of nature you have never noticed before, both small and large.
Every year, the EEA organises a photo competition to raise awareness about an environmental theme and invites Europeans to share their takes on it. This year’s competition ‘REDISCOVER Nature’ is a call for all of us to look around us and let ourselves be amazed by nature.
The competition is open for submissions until 30 September 2020. Please visit EEA website for more information and online submission form.
