Climate Tracker (CT) is an international non-profit organization, aiming to support, train and incentivise better climate journalism globally. We believe in the power of journalism, but recognise that many young journalists don’t have the training, resources or support to identify and tell the climate stories they want to. We also recognise that this challenge is often greatest in the countries hardest hit by climate change. That’s why we:
Provide training and fellowships for young journalists around the world to tell better climate stories locally.
Conduct action-oriented media research to better understand the biggest challenges, trends, and obstacles to powerful climate reporting around the world.
Fund young journalists to report on the world’s most pressing issues and cover the world’s biggest moments, UN negotiations and conferences
Support global collaborations between young climate journalists, newsrooms and NGOs around the world.
Our mission is to support, train and incentivise young journalists in developing countries to tell better climate stories.
Our Core Values
At Climate Tracker, we want to support better climate journalism around the world. To achieve that, our core values include:
Through a partner-funded non-profit model, we have delivered in-person training sessions in more than 30 countries, hundreds of online webinars, and awarded travel scholarships to more than 350 young journalists.
We have run participatory media research in over 20 different countries, and have developed a unique, participatory approach to media analysis and action planning.
Through our thematic media campaigns, we have also supported young journalists to publish more than 7000 climate stories in their national media.
