This exhibition will travel with the Green Project in South America and it will be shown in the capitals of the countries along the journey, in collaboration with the local National Commissions for UNESCO. The photographs are related to the environment in the broad sense (urban and natural) and are distinguished for their fresh, alternative vision of talented young Greek photographers, who believe in the power of photography to change our world.

For 14.536 km, 52 days and in the 7 countries of the journey (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina), the 16 distinguished members of the Green Project team will capture in photographs and video, 36 green points of interest in relation to the geodiversity, the biodiversity, the renewable energy resources and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The original material collected will be used for the production of a book and a film documentary.
