As the world prepares for the latest round of UN-sponsored climate negotiations in Doha, November 26 - December 7, journalists from the Middle East and Africa are receiving support from Internews' Earth Journalism Network to report from COP18. Through their reporting, vulnerable communities affected by climate change will have a greater voice at the table.
Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is proud to announce the 2nd Climate Communications Day will take place at the UNFCCC Climate Change Summit in Qatar. Sign up now to participate, and donate to support a journalist covering the climate negotiations. Have a project or idea to support greater environmental coverage?
A partnership between Internews and O Eco sent 30 journalists to the Rio+20 Summit in Brazil and launched an interactive mapping platform, InfoAmazonia. James Fahn, Director of Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), reports back from the conference in the Columbia Journalism Review. EJN also has new opportunities for upcoming fellowships for journalists from China, India, the EC and the US – those interested should apply today.
Reporting from Rio
With the launch of grants for local environmental media projects and an innovative GeoJournalism project in the Amazon, Internews' Earth Journalism Network (EJN) and its partners are developing locally responsive initiatives to cover environmental issues effectively.
Our Fellowship programs recently brought 41 journalists to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico. Reporters from 26 countries in the developing world and the U.S. worked together to make sense of the issues for audiences at home.
