Support global collaborations between young climate journalists, newsrooms and NGOs around the world.
Climate change is a global issue, and many journalists and newsrooms report on it incredibly well. However, there are too many powerful stories being untold, and too many young journalists who don’t receive the support they deserve. Our fellowships and training is most valuable in languages and geographies where this kind of support isn’t easy to find.
We believe that young journalists are critical influencers in the global climate debate. The climate crisis is a global communications challenge that needs to be told with local audiences in mind. Investing in young journalists to tell accurate, informative, human stories, is one of our most powerful tools in developing in shaping the global climate debate. It is also an investment that can help shape national climate conversations for years to come.
Our work is always focussed on supporting better stories for local audiences. To do that, we need to be able to better understand national media trends and support powerful local journalists to tell stories that resonate. Supporting better climate stories, also means supporting a broader range of storytellers.
