Open International Competition on Climate Change - Be the Change 2020 – 2021

Theme: How Climate Change is affecting Communities, Cities and Countries? Take the Problem as an opportunity for expressing ideas and designs to bring the change.

Climate change is creating vulnerable situations globally, creating problems and risks from drought conditions to flooding. Its impact on the environment, people, economy, social structure and political scenario is unimaginative. Climate change is not going to happen in the coming ten years or in the next one year, it is happening now!!! It’s time to change and be the change. Take the problem as an opportunity to arrive at simple sustainable ideas for better communities, cities and countries.
