DEADLINE: COP27 Climate Justice Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
August 19, 2022

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, there are two ways you can join Climate Tracker's journalism 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!

Fully-funded chance to to report from Egypt

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 one month of pre-COP27 online  training!

What are we looking for in both opportunities?

Ideal candidates will…

  • Be 18-35 years old
  • Be from or living in a developing country
  • Have at least 1 year of journalism experience
  • Have a hunger to improve as a journalist
  • Have a proven history of writing quality climate stories (show that you’ve published a climate or environmental story in the past 3 months)

Deadline to apply: Fri, Aug 19, 2022
