1. Who can apply?

We encourage young writers from around the world (like yourself) to help us write inspiring stories and to publish them in media, and we will reward five of you with a spot to COP 23 in Germany!

2. What do I have to write about?

We will have 3 publishing windows, during which you will have to write at least 1 article about a specific topic. You will have to write at least one article on each topic to be eligible for our prizes. That means at least 3 articles in total:

  • Topic 1 (1July – 31 July): The Clean Energy Revolution

During the first publishing window, we encourage you to: (1) describe the importance of, and the opportunities for, clean energy in your country or region; (2) explain how the fossil fuel industry is having negative impacts on climate change, endangering millions of people, and (3) call out for a higher ambition in executing the well-underway clean energy revolution.

  • Topic 2 (1Aug – 31 Aug): Supporting Climate Finance

To ensure the wellbeing of future societies and to achieve the climate goals that have been set, we have to invest in the future. It’s time to take up responsibility and make sure where our climate money is going.

  • Topic 3 (1 Sep – 30 Sept): Climate and health

Climate change is impacting each and every one of us on a very personal level that many of us don’t even realize, namely our health. With climate action, we have the chance to save millions of lives.

To get started on the first topic, and get some inspiration on how and what to write, we will be sending you a toolkit as soon as you sign up to the competition.

By writing on these topics, you’re eligible to win a spot on our team at COP23 in Bonn. Climate Tracker will be covering your flight, accommodation, entry into the COP and guidance by the Climate Tracker team. Other prices to win include online writing fellowships, for which you receive a stipend and personal guidance from Climate Tracker to write about climate change issues in your region.

What is a writing fellowship?

After submitting your articles, you are eligible to win a writing fellowship with us. Writing fellows are paid to deliver a certain amount of articles about certain topics. They also receive personalised training by Climate Tracker and get help in refining their publishing skills. It is an amazing opportunity to grow as a writer and to collaborate with the Climate Tracker team.

Where do I publish my article?

You have to find a news site, blog, newspaper, magazine… willing to publish your article. It can be at a national, regional, local or international level. Aim for the one with best outreach, and avoid fake news websites.

If you never published before, we are here to help you! Check the “Links and Resources” section below, and feel free to contact us for help.

Can I use other formats aside from writing?

Yes, you can also send us a picture series (as long as you published it somewhere), video (upload your video it in youtube and send us the link, or radio (if you send us the link of the radio program where you appeared and a transcript of your intervention).

In which language can I publish my article?

You can publish in any language you prefer. You can choose depending on which audience you want to reach and why.
