This week's Green Living post focuses on the importance of art's role on the environmental stage. The Prix Pictet began in 2008 by Pictete & Cie, a private bank based in Geneva. It's mandate is - "to use the power of photography to communicate vital messages to a global audience. The goal is to uncover art of the highest order, applied to confront the pressing social and environmental challenges of the new millennium."
