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
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.
