Grants available for environmental reporting [Pacific Islands]

Posted on Apr 1, 2022 in Environmental Reporting

Journalists from the Pacific Islands can apply for grants to work on in-depth stories on critical environmental issues in the Pacific region.

Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), in partnership with the Waitt Institute, is offering 12 reporting grants to support the production of in-depth or investigative stories on environmental and climate issues in the region.

Interested journalists are invited to attend the virtual media workshop “Strengthening Ocean Reporting in the Pacific Islands,” March 28 and 31, and April 4. The workshop will discuss issues relating to the environment and ocean and cultivate a sustainable network of Pacific Islands journalists.

Following the workshop, up to 12 story grants will be made available. At least six of these stories will be focused on ocean issues, such as efforts and solutions to protect the ocean, ways to increase ocean’s resilience to climate change and regulate sustainable use of its resources.

Selected journalists will receive support from experienced mentors through the story production process.

Apply by April 30.
