Your Opportunity to Contribute to The Lancet-Global Commission on Pollution + Health Report!
The Lancet is publishing a landmark report by the Global Commission on Pollution + Health this spring on pollution, the leading cause of death and disability in the world. It is responsible for taking 10 million lives every year, primarily in low and middle-income countries. To showcase this challenge and fill in gaps in the data, the Commission is inviting people affected by pollution, especially those living in low and middle-income countries, to submit photos and stories describing its effects in their communities. A crowd-sourced collection of stories, images and captions will help transform the data in the Commission report, showing how human life is harmed by pollution. National Geographic is collaborating with us through their "Your Shot Hashtag Challenge."
