Environmental reporting grant open [Worldwide]
Media professionals who report on the environment or are interested in strengthening the environmental news community can apply for a grant.
The Earth Journalism Network is seeking to invest in strategic opportunities for media development, build the capacities of local environmental journalism networks and their members, and help energy reporters respond to their communities’ needs.
Projects aimed at building networks of environmental journalists are especially encouraged to apply. Projects that use innovative methods to build networks or distribute environmental news will also be favorably viewed.
The network has a total of US$50,000 available for the coming year, to be divided among at least five projects.
In the past, the Earth Journalism Network has supported local initiatives such as training programs for Cambodian journalists in climate change reporting, the publication of a story series in the Moscow Times, the creation of a news challenge for young European environmental journalists, and conferences that launched or expanded environmental journalism networks in Indonesia, Mexico, Uzbekistan, the Philippines and the Amazon region.
The submission deadline is October 15.
