Climate Trackers Arab World Journalism Program Fellowships Application Form, Eligibility, Requirements and Guidelines for the 2017/2018 academic year.
Participate in Climate Trackers Arab World Journalism Program and win a fully funded fellowship to the Bonn climate negotiations in May or an Online fellowship!
The Arab region is one of the most affected by climate change, but little action is seen yet to stop the consequences. We believe that we need an informed public debate in the media to change this. That is why Climate Tracker is launching a journalism program only focused in the Arab region. Together we can raise awareness of the topic in media in the region and influence governments and policy makers!
- Get a fully funded fellowship to the UN climate negotiations:
- The best 2 writers will get a chance to attend the UNFCCC’s intersessional in Bonn for one week (in May 2017).
- UNFCCC will also award 3 online fellowships with specific and tailored training from Climate Tracker.
