The competition successfully received over 400 photos and 25 videos submissions from almost 40 countries around the world.

    Prof. Edeltraud Guenther (UNU-FLORES) and Roland Schwarz (TSD) moderate this evening event, which forms part of the Long Night of Science 2021 (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaft 2021).

    During the evening, TSD announces the formal opening of the Wolke 8. The Climate and Us exhibition, an interactive science exhibition that also offers workshops for families and school classes.

    The highlight of the evening is the announcement of the winners for the Photo & Video storytelling contest during the prize ceremony.

    The “Sustainability Stories” initiative is supported by the Saxon State Ministry for Energy, Climate Protection, Environment and Agriculture (SMEKUL).
