Collection: Year in Pictures 2016 (Photos & Video)

GP0STQF17
2016 was a challenging year for people and the planet. It brought many challenges that will continue in the year ahead – a changing climate, greedy corporations and politicians whose policies spell trouble for the planet.
As we look back on 2016, it's clear there's a lot of work still to be done. It's difficult to pick just a few images among the over 20,000 images our photographers and videographers have made while covering the struggle for a green and peaceful future all around the world. Here are some of this year’s highlights, and a reminder of why we need to continue the good fight. We couldn’t have done this work without all of you, thank you, and on to 2017!
