#BEOPENCleanEnergy open call was dedicated to promoting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and in particular focuses on SDG7, calling to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all".


Energy lies at the heart of both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all will open a new world of opportunities for billions of people through new economic opportunities and jobs, better education and health, more sustainable, equitable and inclusive communities, and greater protections from climate change.

In order to encourage more people to take action, and join sustainable initiatives worldwide, we suggested posting visuals that represent a cleaner, safer, happier and more sustainable world, achievable with affordable and clean energy.


BE OPEN praises everyone who sent visuals that reflect this topic via Instagram with the #BEOPENCleanEnergy hashtag, as a way to celebrate people’s ability to creatively interpret the reality around them. BE OPEN Community members have selected the winning post from a shortlist of submissions with the highest number of likes by Instagram users.


Our congratulations and the €300 prize go to Instagram user bacchetta_ for the picture of a colourful autumn field with wind turbines against the clear blue sky.
