Climate Tracker Climate Journalism Fellowship in the Philippines for young climate journalists.

Application Deadline: September 10th, 2021

Climate Tracker will bring together eight young climate journalists and their editors across the Philippines to create a masterclass of climate communications and knowledge sharing. 

The aim of this project is to engage experienced journalists and editors in major news outlets. We want to break down barriers by creating the chance for newsrooms and NGOs to work together to cover climate stories better, specifically on renewable energy (RE) and just energy transition (JET). 

Climate Tracker will be connecting national and regional journalists interested in climate reporting so they can learn from each other, and link them to the leading experts in RE and JET space to help them produce a series of powerful stories.

Also, we’ll offer story grants to eight reporter-editor teams to produce eight in-depth climate and energy stories to be published in their national and regional news outlets. These participants will also benefit from an exciting opportunity to take part in our podcast! They’ll chat about their stories, their experiences, and their thoughts on climate journalism in the Philippines. 

Eligibility

Ideal candidates must:

  • Have at least 3 years of journalism experience
  • Be affiliated with a news or media network
  • Have a hunger to improve as journalists – this is a learning experience

  • Submit drafts of all your work to Climate Tracker team members in a timely manner.
