About Climate Tracker and Climate Story

Climate Story

Climate Tracker is inviting journalists to pitch their Climate Change Stories. As climate change worsens and global carbon emissions keep increasing, how is your country reacting to this crises? How are people in local communities being affected by climate shocks? What role are climate policies playing? 

Climate Tracker is looking for young journalists to write and publish stories on climate impacts, solutions, policies and science from all over the world.

What type of story are they looking for:

They want original stories that are going unnoticed

  • Feature story: Yours is a story from the first line of the climate crisis. They want to tell the story of the people impacted and the complex reasons behind those climate impacts. They also want to fiscalise people in power and their climate policy decisions. For these type of stories, yoi should aim for a feature.
  • Explainer: Climate change is a complex issue. They want to take a complex issue, analyze it and explain the different ways it impacts people. This might cover a specific climate policy, a controversy within the scientific community or a new law for example.
  • Profile: Some people make a very bug difference in the fight against climate change. They want to hear their story, think about an environmental defender, a climate policy leader or a scientist working on an important breakthrough.
