Group Description

NOTE - Submitting photos to State of the Environment photo project is now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos.

What is the State of our Environment, our planet, today? Looking back years from now, what will today's photos tell us?

Almost 40 years ago, EPA's Documerica project captured thousands of compelling images of environmental problems and the state of American life. Now, we've gone global with the same idea. After four decades of greater environmental awareness, how far have we come?

It's free to join Flickr. Submit your best CURRENT photos of our world and our environment to this group: taken from where you live or where you travel.
