Journalists working in low- or middle-income countries are eligible for a fellowship to attend COP15.
Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering a new fellowship for journalists interested in reporting from the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15). The conference will be held Dec. 7 to 19 in Montreal, Canada.
In the leadup to COP15, fellows will receive resources and tools to help prepare for reporting at the conference.
While in Montreal, fellows will participate in a series of specially designed activities, including an orientation session with biodiversity experts on the key issues at COP15, daily briefings and interviews with high-level officials.
Eight journalists will be selected for the fellowship. Fellows will receive airfare, accommodation, meals, travel insurance, and transportation costs to participate in the fellowship.
The application deadline is Sept. 15.
