Climate Tracker invites applications for the Climate Journalism Mentorship for young reporters to cover the COP27, happening in Egypt in 2022
The world is already turning its gaze to the city of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, where the UN Climate Negotiations (COP27) will be taking place this year, from 7-18 November 2022. This conference could be a chance to turn the Glasgow outcome into action, through the implementation of climate change adaptation, mitigation, and financial strategies.
So, this year, we’re happy to let you know that there are two ways you can join our fellowship to get training and cover the critical issues for your country and region throughout the negotiations. You could be with the team in Egypt or you could opt to be part of our virtual team. Either way, you’ll be receiving training from climate reporters with years of experience telling the COP stories!
They are looking for 10 journalists to join this team, working on publishing stories in their local media as well as through Climate Tracker.
