Photography can be a good way of becoming more mindful and aware of our surroundings. Take a stroll in the park, find the beautiful nature spots in your city, town or village and enjoy the fresh air, admire the trees and the lovely bird sounds. Take a mental snapshot of this moment, feel the wind, the sounds, the fresh autumn smells. Then grab your phone and take a picture for November's #climateambassador challenge!
Either in a story or a post, add the picture and tell us why it inspired you! We'd like to share your story, which is why we'd need you to tag us @youreurope.
Let's spread the love for nature and tag three friends to do the same!
