These Photos were taken as part of the Many Strong Voices Programme.
Many Strong Voices was born at the climate change negotiations in Montreal, December 2005, out of a need for joint efforts to raise awareness about the effects of climate change in the Arctic and Small Island Developing States (SIDS), two of the world's most vulnerable regions. Since then, Many Strong Voices has worked to bring together over 20 organisations from these two regions to take collaborative and strategic actions on climate change mitigation and adaptation at the local, regional and international level.
Portraits of Resilience illustrates in a direct and personal way the ethical dimension of climate change. The project trains children in regions most affected by climate change in the use of photography and other digital media, helping to bring personal stories and faces to the attention of the general public and to decision-makers at international climate change negotiations.
