Deadline: 27 September 2019
Open to: young journalists from around the world
Benefits: fully-funded fellowships to the United Nations climate change negotiations in Santiago de Chile
Participate in the competition to be considered for one of four fully-funded fellowships to the United Nations climate change negotiations in Santiago de Chile.
The global community agreed in Paris to limit climate change in a way that protects people and the planet. Four years later, we still see countries giving large sums of money to fossil fuels, or planning to expand new coal and gas projects.
But we don’t have time to wait, the latest science tells us that we need rapid and far-reaching changes to a more sustainable future if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
It is time to pressure our governments to stop developing new fossil fuel projects, and stop funding them, transitioning to a renewable energy and more fair economy.
They are looking for young journalists from around the world who want to make a big impact in their countries by publishing about a fossil fuel project that needs to be stopped in their country.
The best 4 journalists will get a chance to attend and cover the COP25 in Chile, from 29th November to 14th December. There you will receive training on climate policy and journalism by Climate Tracker, get to attend the international climate negotiations and meet amazing people from everywhere in the world! You cannot miss this chance!
