Every day, thousands of images of climate change are shared around the world.
A more compelling and diverse visual language for climate change is urgently required, so Climate Outreach created climatevisuals.org, an evidence-based image library to compliment our range of bespoke photography, visual services and partnerships.
Based on international social research in Europe and the US, this unique resource offers seven core principles for effective visual communication, plus a library of images. Climate Visuals aims to strategically change the working practices of influential visual communicators across the world, to catalyse a new - more compelling and diverse - visual language for climate change.
This website contains a growing library of photographs to provide inspiration and guidance for campaigners, picture editors and communications practitioners selecting imagery for communicating climate change. All images are captioned with an explanation of how they fit with the seven Climate Visuals principles, and why they work. Each image is linked to its original source and many are available to download for free under Creative Commons licenses for use in blogs, articles and campaigns.
