In a bid to explore the Resource Nexus and sustainability in images, UNU-FLORES and the Technische Sammlungen Dresden invited both amateurs and professionals to submit photographs and videos in conjunction with the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development 2021. Hundreds of entries have been pared down to a shortlist of 22, with the final winners set to be announced on Friday, 9 July 2021 during the Long Night of Science Dresden (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften).
The competition received more than 400 entries from almost 40 countries, about three-quarters of which from the Global South. The shortlisted photographers and videographers captured different perspectives on the Resource Nexus, particularly relating to agriculture, forests, circular economy, climate change, and biodiversity.
