UNDP Climate Change Storytelling Contest

Posted in: Uncategorized
Applications are open for the Climate Change Story telling contest for raising public awareness on the negative impacts of climate change on people and communities in low and middle income countries. UNDP is looking for young journalists in developing countries to contribute to the global debate on climate change in the run-up to COP21, while building their capacity, and providing recognition for excellence. Selected different stories will be published every day from 2nd to 29th November. The two winning journalists will cover the climate conference in Paris.

UNDP have a special interest in articles that address the impact of climate change on human rights (impact on health and work environment, access to food and water, right to live in a specific community, etc.) and the solutions that can impact positively local communities.

Applicants need to be under 35 years of age and come from developing countries that are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change with strong interest in reporting on climate change and be engaged in public writing through an official media outlet.

For more information interested individuals should contact Sarah Bel – UNDP Communication Specialist at media4climate@undp.org.

The deadline to submit an entry is October 11th 2015, with early submission encouraged.

For more information on guidelines for application please visit the UNDP Contest website.
