Do you love writing and communicating about climate change issues? Have you always wanted to attend a United Nations conference to see with your own eyes where it all happens? Are you from Eastern Europe? Then this is your chance!
Recently, Climate Tracker launched global 1.5 writing competition, which was eligible for anyone and offered a fully-funded fellowship to the UN climate summit in Bonn, Germany, this May. Hundreds of people responded and we received many strong articles from all over the world. The winner of that competition will be announced soon.
Now we Climate Tracker is launching a second, very similar competition, but ONLY FOR JOURNALISTS FROM EASTERN EUROPE. The winner of this second competition will be joining the winner of the first competition in Germany this May, to join the Climate Tracker team and report on the UN climate summit.
The fellowship is looking for writers from Eastern Europe to join this competition by writing about the necessity to stay below 1.5 degrees of warming and the ways in which we can reach that target: 100% renewable energy, natural climate solutions and zero fossil fuels and their vested influence.
The best submission can win you an invitation to the UN climate negotiations in May 2018, which will be held in Bonn, Germany. There you will receive training on climate and journalism by Climate Tracker, get to attend the international climate negotiations and meet amazing people from everywhere in the world! You cannot miss this chance!
Climate Tracker will revise the articles submitted through the app, give you feedback and tips, and select the best writers. The best writer will get a fully funded fellowship to Bonn, Germany, for the UNFCCC meeting.
You have to publish an article in media in your country or region. It can be a newspaper, a magazine, an online news site, etc. Once your article is published, make sure to submit the link to Climate Tracker through our app before the 13th.
You have time until the 13th of April to write an article about why we must stay below 1.5 degrees of warming and how we can achieve that.
