Residents of Burngreave had an opportunity to view photos taken by local young people at the BME environmental photo exhibition at SHEBEEN in July.
The exhibition’s aim is to help people discover the most picturesque and beautiful places in Sheffield and the surrounding countryside so as to encourage them to visit for leisure and recreation. It also introduces the range of environmental activities and events that SHEBEEN provides, to get people actively involved and empowered to enjoy, understand and protect their environmental heritage. Many of the photos were taken by young people from Burngreave who not only took pictures but also learnt about the importance and impact of the natural environment on their lives. The project was run by Anwar Suliman in his role as environmental project officer and photographer.
