Grant Opportunities: Apply for Global COP27 Journalism Fellowship (in-Person or Virtual)

Must read

Deadline: 19-Aug-22

Climatetracker.org is excited to announce its 2022 climate justice journalism fellowship for young reporters to cover the COP27, happening in Egypt.

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, they’re happy to let you know that there are two ways you can join their fellowship to get training and cover the critical issues for your country and region throughout the negotiations.
