Children see the world differently everyday. Their vision is innocent and true, as they discover and wonder about the world around them. Children’s Eyes on Earth with support from National Geographic Kids UK invited children and teenagers to submit photos that portray challenges to the environment in a way that inspire elders to take action. Some 4000 photos were submitted from 90 countries. Through the judging panel a select few won awards and recognition for the photography submitted.
Below are a few of the thousand selected. May the younger generations continue to incorporate environmental awareness into their daily life as they grow.
