Throughout the world, humankind has divided itself into separate sections of society based on culture, race, ethnicity, gender, income, and so on. Segregation in society has constantly led to conflicts, war, and widespread unrest in the world. It has affected the lives of countless people, putting their survival at risk. Inequality in opportunities, income, and way of living has a detrimental effect on the well-being of people. In the contemporary world, we are facing threats on a global level, and a united stand by humanity against them is the hour of need. But to bring peace and cohesiveness to humankind, we must be able to identify the segregation that is deeply embedded in society, mental and physical.

The brief/theme of the challenge is to make a picture story of the segregation that is seen in the society around you, using not more than 8 images — along with a concept note. This concept note can be added in the journal section that covers a description of your picture story.

3. Title and subtitle of the project on the project page.
4. A concept note of about 500 words in the journal section.
