"EverydayClimateChange is a collection of photographers from 6 continents who share photographs made on 7 continents to present visual evidence that climate change doesn't just happen "over there" but that climate change is also happening "right here". Photographers come from the north, the south; the east and the west; and are as diverse as the cultures in which we were all raised. We document not only the effects of climate change but also potential solutions to mitigate the effects of global warming on our world."
Here are a few photos from the EverydayClimateChange's Instagram to further show how these photographers are spreading the word about climate change.
"Photo by @gideonmendel for#everydayclimatechange. You can see the mud here but you can't smell it. Today we visited the Palna Village in Northern #Bangladesh and met the Mia family shown here- Tamin (6), Tahomina, Malek and Shamin (19). This region consists of rich agricultural land and is not prone to flooding so when a nearby embankment breached three weeks ago they and all the other members of their community were taken by surprise. They said that no villager was prepared for this and they had never experienced a flood on this scale before. More than 30 square kilometres were under water causing enormous devastation and hardship. Many mud walled houses collapsed, the local rice yield is destroyed and roads are damaged. I am currently here in Bangladesh working with #oxfamnovib exploring the impacts of #climatechange and #globalwarmingon some of the world's most vulnerable communities in the runup to the COP21 Paris Climate Conference. This work is also part of my ongoing #drowningworldproject. With ever growing water quantities coming into Bangladesh from the Himalayas and increasing the siltation of river beds these sort of disasters are likely to become even more frequent and the distress we witnessed today more widespread."

Thick haze caused by lingering forest and land fires in Riau province, Indonesia, force local authorities to send students home due to poor air quality. According to provisional data, 1,022 people have suffered from health problems because of the haze since the beginning of July. Of them, 757 suffered from acute respiratory infection, 160 from skin irritation, 50 from eye irritation, 29 from asthma and 26 from pneumonia.

On November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan devastated the region, killing more than 6,000 people and immediately displacing 4 million. Haiyan, among the strongest storms ever recorded, was a glimpse into increasingly intense and frequent storms."

The Manila megalopolis is one of the world's most vulnerable to rising sea levels."
