‘Polar bears, melting ice and smoke stacks – if you search for climate-change imagery online, the range is predictable and limited,’ says Adam Corner from the charity Climate Outreach. The result? People feel demoralized or uninterested and stop paying attention.To fix this problem, Climate Outreach have launched a curated collection of photos that tell a ‘relatable, human story’ to help media outlets, campaigners and photographers engage audiences on climate-change issues.

The library – which is home to images of climate-change causes, impacts and solutions – includes photos like this one (above), of 20-year-old Indian engineer Meenakshi Diwan, who is tending to a solar panel in Tinginapu, Odisha.
