Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | This is what the Earth looks like one kilometer from the North Pole—drift ice where, during summer, polar bears struggle to live and hunt. North of Svalbard, drift ice gets thinner and more sparse each year, a sign of how climate change is affecting nature and wildlife. Finding new ways to live on our planet while respecting nature and trying to limit the damage caused by our emissions is crucial to ensure the survival of endangered species like the polar bear.

Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | The Amazon rainforest has been subject to extreme fires in recent weeks. Slash-and-burn is often used to clear the land for farming or ranching—nearly all fires can be attributed either to humans or exceptionally dry land, caused by climate change. This creates a vicious cycle, as burning trees means losing the most effective way to capture carbon from the atmosphere while emitting an enormous amount of CO2. This picture, in the heart of the Amazon, is for me a reminder of how we should join forces and find solutions to survive on our planet sustainably. The Amazon rainforest is a place that most inspired me at the beginning of my career; today I think it should inspire everyone to take a step in the right direction, toward taking care of our fragile environment.

Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | Visitors can peer over Dubai from an observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper at 2,717 feet (828 meters). Dubai aims for superlatives: it's now racing to become one of the planet’s most sustainable cities. The emirate will showcase its efforts as host of Expo 2020, also known as the world’s fair, a six-month exhibition with sustainability as one of its themes. A decade ago Dubai had one of the largest ecological footprints of any city in the world. By 2050 it wants to have the smallest. Can it get there?

Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | Dubai Marina at dusk. In a single generation, Dubai exploded from humble port to metropolis. Electricity and paved roads arrived in 1961. Oil funded expansion in the 1970s. The building boom accelerated in the 2000s. The pace has slowed since the 2008 financial crisis, but the city continues to rise up and out.

Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | On Dubai’s southern outskirts, a new housing development has opened—called Sustainable City—that recycles its water and waste and produces more energy than it consumes thanks to solar panels that shade roof terraces and parking lots. Building orientation was a critical design choice at the Sustainable City, where homes face north and shade each other.

Photo by Nichole Sobecki @nicholesobecki | I was driving to Mareero, a smuggling hub in Somalia's semiautonomous region of Puntland, when distant human forms began to emerge from the dusty, hazy horizon. Somali and Ethiopian migrants were walking to caves, where they will wait for dhow boats to carry them on the perilous journey across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen, and eventually to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. By amplifying sudden disasters like storms and floods along with slower-moving crises like drought and desertification, our warming planet is driving human migration and becoming one of the world’s most destabilizing forces. On this World Environment Day, I hope we can both celebrate our deep connections to the natural world and also remember the ways in which its increasing fragility is pushing millions of people from their homes.

Indian workers dive to the bottom of the river with a metal bucket to scoop sand, hauled to the water surface by the boat crew. As construction and industry drive a demand for sand, illegal sand mining is stripping riverbeds and beaches of sand with severe social and environmental consequences.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | The Fantiscritti marble basin in Carrara, Italy. The white marble excavation sites of Carrara are located within the imposing and ecologically-rich Apuan Alps. Millions of years of organic sediments congealed to create this precious stone, forging the core of these severe mountains running along the Italian sea. The white stone of Carrara is reckoned since Roman times as the finest marble. Ancient excavation techniques preserved these mountains for centuries, but the acceleration that new extraction technology offers has violently increased the destruction—here in the last thirty years, more marble has been removed than during the past two millennia.

Photo by Pete Muller @pete_k_muller | During this past year I’ve been working on a National Geographic project that explores the changing human relationship with the environment and how we think about, understand, and discuss these changes. The picture above is from this project. It’s a portrait of Alexander and Stanislav, two sea hunters in the Russian Arctic region of Chukotka. In this scene, the men work to craft new harpoon points for use during sea hunting endeavors. Coastal Chukchi communities are largely dependent on their ability to hunt marine mammals in order to survive in remote and unforgiving lands. The formation of sea ice along the coastline is unreliable. The ecological balance is shifting. #environment #environmental #change #Chukotka #russia

Photo by @nicholesobecki | Jane Amana looks out a gap in the home she was forced to abandon due to insecurity in Laikipia, Kenya, after armed men occupied her land in 2017. Laikipia is where the lush volcanic green of the Rift Valley begins to turn to arid plains. Many here say that it’s also the frontier of modern Kenya. A spectacular and precarious part of the country, Laikipia is being transformed by climate change, population growth, ethnic populism, and rapid social change—all of which have created a complex web of conflict that may be a litmus test for Kenya's future and environment. #kenya #laikipia #environment #nicholesobecki

"Señores políticos, me gustaría que nos aseguréis un futuro. Por favor, tomad medidas concretas para que no tengamos que seguir preocupándonos por este gran problema". Es el mensaje de Miguel Ángel Moreno que, como sus compañeros (Estefanía, Alba y Pedro Miguel), ha accedido a posar antes de la #CumbreDelClima rodeado de los residuos que recogen en el Mar Menor. ⠀ ⠀ En total son medio centenar de adolescentes los que madrugan cada sábado para limpiar la basura que dejan otras personas. El 16 de noviembre tocó hacerlo en Playa Honda. "Si no te fijas puede parecer que está limpia, pero si buscas a fondo encuentras trozos de plástico en cantidades exageradas", comentó Pedro Miguel. ⠀ ⠀ Los chavales, divididos en pequeños grupos, registran con diligencia todo lo que van encontrando: "Apunta otro fragmento de plástico pequeño", le dice uno a otro. "Y cuatro colillas", añade un tercer alumno. Su labor hoy no se queda sólo en una tarea de limpieza, sino que la información que recopilen se contabiliza y pasa a formar parte de la base de datos Marine LitterWatch, creada por la Agencia Europea de Medio Ambiente. ⠀ ✍ Información de Marta Ley 📷 @carlosgarciapozo / EL MUNDO ⠀⠀ #contaminación #pollution #basura #waste #marmenor #ocean #environment
