Sustainable Development Goals – a Young Person’s Perspective  

Members of Scotland’s International Development Alliance are invited to submit a photograph that illustrates sustainable development through the eyes of a young person.

Your photo can focus on one of the sustainable development goals or a combination of a few. You might want to portray how young people are involved in shaping development or what impact development has on young people through the work of your organisation or partners. Or maybe your photo could highlight why future work on a specific SDG is important for young people.

There is no age limit for entrants, but entries are particularly encouraged from the young people you are working with either in Scotland or overseas.

The top entries will be displayed at our Annual Conference on the 25th September 2018.

Please note you do not need to be a professional photographer to enter – feel free to get snapping with your smartphone!
