This photo contest is organized by European Climate Alliance and Focus Eco Center in Targu Mures.

Which city, which kind of place do I want my children to grow up and live in? Why did I choose to settle down in my neighborhood and for what reasons do I want to stay here in the future?

The environment we live in is constantly changing: our places concentrate more and more people and vehicles, which means facing new specific issues such as traffic congestion and the scarcity of available space.

Yet, at the same time, citizens increasingly show their wish to reclaim and reconquer urban spaces, for more livable and sustainable cities with green parks and real shared places in harmony with nature and without machines, city noises and congestion.

It raises some issues in regard to the future of the places we live in: how can we share the places between those different aspirations? What place to give to nature in our future cities? Which mobility do we want to promote? What should we expect from our cities in regard to urban social life and the places where people can really meet and get to know each other? Those are underlying questions we have to answer to build our future cities.

We propose you to observe the urban places and life situations you feel concerned about. Take photographs of them and send them to us!
