4th Call for Creative Photography
11 April 2013
For the fourth consecutive year, GreenVoice launches a call for volunteer photographers, the first step of which is a call in Geneva. This call happens in continuation to the various exhibitions organized, the biggest of which took place in summer of 2011 on Quai Wilson. The aim is to motivate citizens to point the lens of their camera on issues related to the environment.
Letâ€™s do it! Join the global community of garbage mappers!
For its initiative, GreenVoice will this year collaborate with the Letâ€™s do it campaign, a fast-expanding civic movements. Started in 2008 in Estonia, 50,000 people came together to get rid of 10,000 tons of illegal garbage from roadsides, forests and towns, cleaning the entire country in just 5 hours. The movement has been growing since, with partnerships and clean-up initiatives in many different countries.
We wish to demonstrate that inaction is no longer a valid option and show that daily environmental gestures of each and everyone can make a great difference. We do know that there is garbage lying around. But to start changing this reality, it is best to first get a clear picture about the situation. We want to encourage citizens to actively participate and help create a pleasant and clean environment.
Geneva, now itâ€™s time
All citizens together with the help of local authorities and partners are welcome to clean dirty places of Geneva: household waste, waste around schools, in parks, near the roadsides, riverbanks, banks of the lake, etc. The goal is to collect as much waste as possible in and around the city.
Letâ€™s talk less, letâ€™s do more!â€ť citizens will participate in the campaign Let's do it â€“ Geneva! and contribute on a voluntarily basis to the creation of a beautiful environment.
