About Water & Urbanization
Waterkeeper Alliance has set up this group so that people around the world can share the photos they’ve taken that say something about the complex relationship that exists between water and our ever-growing cities. The group maintains three goals: (1) to celebrate the ‘Water and Urbanization’ theme informing week-long observance of 2011 United Nations World Water Day (March 22, 2011), (2) to raise awareness about the special challenges of protecting and maintaining clean water in an urban context and (3) to promote the work of Waterkeeper organizations worldwide.
EVERYONE is welcome to submit photos and short videos that fit our Water and Urbanization theme. (Please read our group submission rules for more info.)
Waterkeepers and the donors, members and constituents of Waterkeeper organizations around the world are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to submit photos related to our theme.
Submission Ideas. Here are just a few ideas for your subject matter: City waterfronts, canals, sewer plants, sewer drains, storm drains, aqueducts, marinas, boats, sports activities, parking lots (Yes! Parking lots), greenswards, sea walls, pipes and culverts, sprinklers, gutters, fountains, dock yards, factories, trash and trash receptacles, reservoirs, spillways, people drinking water, people playing in water, animals in water, water falling, stationary water, impeded water, disturbed water, polluted water, fishing, boardwalks, beaches, rivers, ponds, lakes, ditches, hoses, and so on. If it relates to water and connects that water to an urban context, then it’s in play for this group.
The photos you submit DO NOT need to be complex. In fact, they don’t even need to be well shot. They just need to tell us a story—even a short story—about urban waterways and urban water supplies. Include a description of your image if the connection to theme is not immediately clear.
For an extend description of our goals for this project, as well as some more broad ideas about the types of images we want to collect, visit www.waterkeeper.org/urbanwaterphotos.
