Action4Climate

The Action4Climate competition inspired young directors from around the world to send in their climate change stories. More than 230 entries from 70 countries were received showing a new world of climate impacts, solutions and actions, addressing one of our generation’s greatest challenges. As World Bank Group President, Jim Yong Kim says, “We will never end poverty if we do not tackle climate change.”

Action4Climate stories are of drought in Sub-Saharan Africa, floods in Southeast Asia, extreme weather and regret from the Philippines. They show climate solutions, from renewable energy to inspiring leadership. They are personal stories of society getting together and tackling climate change. They are stories of hope and action, directed at a global audience.
