DEADLINE: Caribbean Climate Justice Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
September 23, 2022

System change, not climate change! A popular slogan in the climate movement. What does it all mean and what are the stories behind it? Join our virtual Caribbean Climate Justice Journalism Fellowship, a collaboration of Climate Tracker and Open Society Foundations, to learn and publish stories about the search for solutions that deal with the core causes of climate change while addressing a wide range of social, racial, and environmental injustices that exist.

The fellowship is open to Caribbean journalists or students between 18-35 years of age.

Over the course of six months, each of our selected fellows will learn from a range of environmental, storytelling, and journalism experts, while practically applying their learning in articles aimed at sharing the national and regional climate justice debates, with the primary intention and focus on publishing powerful stories on climate justice.

With 1-1 access to the experts and mentoring, our selected fellows will also engage in an array of workshops to build their climate justice knowledge and their journalism skills.

In addition, this team of Caribbean journalists will get the chance to put what they’ve learned into practice, by engaging in new media journalism, through podcasts, social media storytelling, and newsletters.

This fellowship will take a holistic and career-building perspective as we actively integrate our fellows into the building of a fruitful community for Caribbean climate journalists, storytellers, and communicators.

The fellowship includes a monthly stipend; global exposure of your profile and your stories; networking opportunities; and 1-1 training with technical experts and climate journalists.

Apply by Sep 23, 2022.
