DEADLINE: CCMP Journalism Fellowships to Attend the UN Climate Negotiations in Bonn, Germany
The Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP) led by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network is offering Fellowship opportunities for journalists to attend the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP 23) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany in mid-November 2017. Apply by Jul 21.
Formed in 2007 by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), Panos London and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the CCMP has brought developing country journalists to the annual UN climate summits since 2007. This has enabled them to cover the summit for their home media organizations, work with experienced and knowledgeable journalists from around the world, and gain a multifaceted understanding of climate change's global impact. Numerous regional organizations also play a supporting role in the partnership. This year’s Fellowship program will be a partnership between EJN and the Stanley Foundation.
As part of the Fellowships, the CCMP will cover travel, lodging, and several group meals, and will reimburse for other meal and transport expenses, will help with the press accreditation process, and provide other support services.
Criteria for evaluating applicants will include the prospective Fellow's demonstrated experience covering climate change and other environmental topics, their interest in continued coverage of these issues, and their audience and outlet reach. We also particularly welcome applications from journalists who identify as indigenous peoples.
