About the "Defenders of the Territory" Project

Climate Tracker (CT) is an international non-profit organization, aiming to support, train and incentivise better climate journalism globally. We believe in the power of journalism, but recognise that many young journalists don’t have the training, resources or support to identify and tell the climate stories they want to. We also recognise that this challenge is often greatest in the countries hardest hit by climate change.

Key Dates and Order of Program

Deadline for application is April 22 2021.

We will select 12 journalists in total for this project, respecting regional and gender representation in the final selection. 

This project will run between April and September 2021 and does not require exclusive dedication.
