Climate Tracker, reporting, fellowship, new york

DEADLINE: AUGUST 10TH

Climate Tracker has 8 reporting fellowships available for journalists, photographers and video makers in New York between September 19 and 26, 2019.

The Fellowships are available to young people aged from 18 – 32, from anywhere around the world!

To be present during the fellowship are Presidents, Prime Ministers, and the leading environmental campaigners, scientists from around the world. And Greta Thunberg!

Climate Tracker believes it’s the chance of a lifetime as these are historic moments in the leadup to 2020, and it is an opportunity to report directly from the events

REQUIREMENTS
We are looking for young journalists from around the world who want to make a big impact in their countries by publishing about a youth movement or young leader pushing for climate action in their country.

As of today, the plans presented by countries are not enough to keep global warming within the Paris Agreement’s 1.5C degree limit. That is why UN Secretary-General António Guterres is calling for a special summit in New York, the Climate Action Summit, which will convene and urge global leaders to set forth concrete plans that raise ambition on climate action. Just a couple days before this, young leaders from all over will gather at the first ever Youth Climate Summit to showcase climate solutions and engage with decision-makers on the defining issue of our time. That is why we are asking you to publish a story about the young people who are making climate action a reality.

The best eight writers will get a chance to attend and cover the Global Climate Strike, the UN Youth Climate Summit, the UN Climate Action Summit, and other events happening in New York City from the 19th – 26th September 2019.

The eight fellows will also receive training on climate and journalism organized by Climate Tracker and the Stanley Foundation, participate in group interviews with high-level officials/experts, and network with amazing people from all over the world! All expenses (such as accommodations in close proximity to the UN headquarters and round-trip, economy-class airfare) will be organized and covered for the eight fellows as part of the fellowship.

Climate Tracker has partnered with the Stanley Foundation and the UNSG’s Climate Action Summit Team to organize this fellowship.

  1. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.

  2. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
