Between July 18 and 22, 2022, Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) will host the Latin American and the Caribbean Climate Week, an event that takes place every year with the aim of mobilizing governments, civil society and different actors to drive climate action across countries, communities and economies.
In order to connect the decisions and actors that participate in this event with the need for a fair energy transition for the Dominican Republic, we seek to take advantage of the opportunity to continue promoting young journalists so that they can strengthen themselves as climate journalists.
So for this year, we selected two Dominican journalists who will carry out the field coverage of this important environmental conference. Find out who they are and what their background is in this article.
Dominican journalist with experience in written and digital press. Passionate about data and the digital world, which is why she is currently pursuing a master’s degree in those areas. She shared the 2020 Open Passport International Award, in the category of journalistic investigation, for the work of the Bávaro airport.
Dominican journalist specializing in economic journalism and passionate about environmental issues. For nine years she worked at the newspaper Listín Diario, one of the main print media in the country. She currently works as a senior reporter at Forbes Dominican Republic magazine. She loves the countryside, hikes from time to time, and would love to own an animal shelter.
