Creative Fellowship


Oct 29, 2013 - 5:42pm

In 2012, The Climate Institute began a Creative Fellowship program aiming to brings a human face to the climate change story, It was awarded to photographer Michael Hall, whose images have since graced many of our reports, this website, and other works, including numerous photo essays.    

A near fatal cycling accident with a semi-trailer in 2007 and the subsequent life-changing period of recovery, reflection, and inspiration strengthened Michael's resolve to tackle climate change. His  work has been  widely exhibited internationally and won critical acclaim from leading figures including UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. 

We are grateful to Michael  and Silvia Kantor and the Nelson Meers Foundation, who  fund this  fellowship . If you are interesting in supporting The Climate Institute for such work, please contact us

On this page you'll find a number of the photo essays produced through the fellowship, as well as a link to Michael's blog.
