Young people - we want your photos! Show the world why Glasgow could be a National Park City:
We're really pleased to be working with Glasgow CREATE and Glasgow's Education Improvement Service as part of the "Our Dear Green Place" programme in the build up to COP26.
We're asking children and young people from across Glasgow to share their photos and show why they think Glasgow would make a great National Park City. We'll be selecting some of these photos to be added to our fantastic online gallery and for a special launch event before COP26.
National Parks are places where we protect and enjoy our very special countryside, wildlife, culture and landscapes. But what about Cities? Our Dear Green Place has fantastic parks and greenspaces, wildlife and culture – so what if Glasgow was a National Park City?
We'd love to see what you think makes Glasgow special… why would Glasgow make a great National Park City?
There are two ways you can get involved:
JOIN THE CONVERSATION: Simply take a photo which you think demonstrates Glasgow’s special nature, greenspaces and culture. Post it on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook…) using #OurDearGreenPlace and #NationalParkCity. You can tag the Glasgow National Park City on: Twitter: @GlasgowNPC Instagram: glasgow_npc Facebook: GlasgowNPC
YOUR PHOTO COULD BE IN A GALLERY: The National Park City group has set up a special online gallery and they are inviting young people to share their images of what makes Glasgow a great National Park City. Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org We will accept applications through the summer. Then, at the end of the August, a small number of the best photos will be selected for the gallery and a launch event in the lead up to COP26.
A few reminders:
You should only send in or post pictures of people if they are happy to be included – you must ask permission or use photos with no people, or people just in the background.
If you want the photos to appear in the gallery – they must be your own work!
