New Climate Visuals website and image library

By Toby Smith on May 4, 2021

The Climate Visuals website and image library

Introducing our new, expanded and improved Climate Visuals website and image library – a unique and trusted source of evidence and images for over 350 climate change and environmental groups, journalists, educators and businesses.

Since the launch of this programme in 2016, our collection has grown to host over 1,000 Creative Commons and rights managed images – all content that embodies our evidence-based 7 Climate Visuals principles.  These guidelines and exemplary images help ensure photographers, commissioners and editors can find and select photography that goes beyond illustration towards positive impact. 

New features and functionality allow users to:

    • search images by keywords, country, theme, date, license type and source
    • register in order to see and access content that is ‘rights ready’ for their profile and needs
    • save, download and collaborate on their image selections across multiple lightboxes

Four new major projects and partnerships for 2021 and COP26 will be made possible by the new website’s digital architecture and functionality. 

Over the next six months, we plan to grow the library substantially with new partnerships and contributors, whilst rolling out customised climate-change keywords and vocabulary. This strategy and search tool will make our content even more accessible but also enable us to target and support both emerging and urgent climate narratives with the best visual content.
