Young journalists and experienced editors with interests in global warming and climate change can now apply to The GroundTruth Project. The reporting project is about to build a new editorial team to report on environmental issues from a global perspective. For this aim, they are looking for five young cross- and multimedia-journalists as fellows and some experienced editors to lead the project.
Succesfull applicants for the reporting fellowship programme will begin working with the team in November 2015 and shortly after travel to Paris to cover the Climate Conference 2015. The fellowship will continue for four weeks. During that time, fellows will not only report about the conference and other issues related to the topic, but at the same time receive training and mentorship. After this, it is planned to stay in the team for the next three years to provide in-depth-reporting on the impact of global warming.
Apply here for the climate reporting fellowship.
Applicants for the fellowship must be in their early careers, fluent in English and show an interest in reporting on environmental issues. The deadline is September 22, 2015.
In addition to this, the GroundTruth Project is also looking for experienced editors to guide the journalists in the project. Suitable applicants must have a minimum journalism experience of three years, preferably focussing on environmental reporting. Editors can send their CV and coverletter to [email protected] with the subject “Climate Fellowship Edidot Application”. The deadline to apply as an editor is October 15, 2015.
The GroundTruth Project is an NGO that has the aim to train a new generation of international journalists. They should be sensitive towards human rights issues, freedom of expression, religion and environmental topics. If journalists have an understanding and knowledge in such issues, it is easier to transport this to the public.
