To heighten the awareness on the reality and risks that emissions brings to our society, and its impacts on climate change, CODATU, with the support of the Union of Public and Railway Transport (UTP) and the Association of Transport Authorities (GART), has organized a photo competition on the following theme:
The aim was to enhance the impact of urban transport in fighting climate change through images that challenge us to re-imagine mobility in the most original and engaging way!
The winning pictures displayed in many french public transport networks during COP21
The winning photos will be displayed in public transport networks of several cities in France, and on the home page of CODATU website, during the two weeks of COP21 in Paris. The Oise Department (France), Loir-et-cher Department (France), Cote d’Armor Department (France), Rennes Metropolis (France), Lyon Metropolis (France), Reunion Island (French Overseas Region), Grand Tarbes and Perpignan-Mediterranee Urban Areas have committed to display the photos in their Public Transport Network. Many other cities contacted with us to show photos.
A selection of the best photos will also travel to various countries to be displayed at conferences, festivals, galleries and other urban transport related events such as the Sustainable Transport Award (STA) organised every January by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) in Washington DC during the Transport Research Board event gathering more than 12.000 people.
If you are interested to show photos in your network or during an event you are organising, please contact Marion Hoyez.
