The Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in cooperation with UNICEF Suriname is organizing a photo contest, “SDGs through the Eyes of You(th)!”. This contest is part of the “World’s Largest Lesson”, a campaign aimed at introducing the Sustainable Development Goals to children and young people everywhere, uniting them in action.
We are particularly looking for photos that aim to inspire young people to think about development and take action to achieve the 2030 Agenda and 17 SDGs. At a time when the world’s attention will be focused on these issues, the winning photos will put a face to the SDGs.
How to Participate
To participate do the following:
Take a picture showing us something in your community within Suriname that makes you believe in a more sustainable future for Suriname.
Tip: Tell us a story! Be creative!
