EPA Earth Day State of the Environment Photo Project - Documerica 40 Years Later
After more than 40 years of greater environmental awareness and protection since EPA opened its doors, how far have we come? Photos are displayed alongside the 1970s collection of the very same idea. From 1971 to 1977, the Environmental Protection Agency hired freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s. The U.S. National Archives digitized more than 15,000 photographs from the series. 4,000 Documerica project images are available on the Web
Climate Change In Focus Video Challenge
The Environmental Protection Agency and the National Environmental Education Foundation are having a video contest that asks middle school students to produce a short video about why they care about climate change, and what they can do about it. Winning videos will be highlighted on the EPA website and the winners will receive cool prizes like a backpack that uses solar power to charge a phone or computer. The first 100 contestants to enter will also receive a year’s subscription to National Geographic Kids Magazine. The deadline for submissions is March 10.
