The world is already turning its gaze to the city of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, where the UN Climate Negotiations (COP27) will be taking place this year, from 7-18 November 2022. This conference could be a chance to turn the Glasgow outcome into action, through the implementation of climate change adaptation, mitigation, and financial strategies.
So, this year, we’re happy to let you know that there are two ways you can join our fellowship to get training and cover the critical issues for your country and region throughout the negotiations. You could be with the team in Egypt or you could opt to be part of our virtual team. Either way, you’ll be receiving training from climate reporters with years of experience telling the COP stories!
👩🏽💻We’re looking for young, early-to-mid career reporters who want to learn from the some of the best climate reporters in the world, connect with other reporters from around the world, and work on collaborative stories they can publish in their national media. 🎯You can choose to apply in-person, virtually, or BOTH!
We’re looking for 10 journalists to join this team, working on publishing stories in their local media as well as through Climate Tracker. As an in-person fellow, we’ll be covering the full cost of your travel, accommodation, stipend, and giving you 1 month of pre-COP27 online training!
Deadline to apply: Friday 19th August, 2022
📝If you’re interested, please submit an application below including:
- Your CV/résumé
- A short motivational letter explaining why this would be a great opportunity for you, and how you would make the most of it
- A pitch for a pre-COP story you'd be able to publish
- A selection of your writing portfolio
