A l’occasion du 5ème concours international de photographie patroné par Yann Arthus-Bertrand, la Fondation Alliance française invite les candidats à illustrer les questions qui se posent chez eux sur le climat et ses évolutions réelles ou perçues, sur les effets qui en découlent dans la vie des gens et sur les solutions, publiques ou privées, qui, dans leur pays, sont prises ou imaginées pour lutter contre les effets négatifs de ces évolutions.
Le lauréat sélectionné par le jury parisien sera invité à Paris pendant une semaine !
