Deadline: April 27, 2017
Become a fossil fuel online fellow! Climate Tracker is looking for 5 online fellows to write about the fossil fuel industry in their countries. Climate Tracker will help you refine your style, give you resources, tips, feedback on your articles. You will learn a lot about journalism and climate change and you will have personalised assistance from the Climate Tracker team.
Climate Tracker started with the belief that with the right support, any young person around the world can become a powerful voice for climate change. Since 2009 they have brought incredibly talented teams of young reporters to the UN climate negotiations, where they have infamously become known as Negotiator Trackers. Their combination of passion, insight and drive made Climate Trackers realise how powerful young citizen journalists can become. Over the years they slowly expanded their programs until 2014, refining their understanding of the global media landscape.
They have engaged thousands of young people across dozens of languages. They have published articles in over 107 different countries and continue to believe that any young person with the right support and persistence can shape their national media landscape. Whether you are a first time writer or a seasoned journalist, this opportunity, is your chance to join this movement.
- Asides the awesome experience, the fellowship also includes a payment of $150.
