CCMP Fellowships to Attend the UN Climate Negotiations in Morocco
Deadline:JULY 8, 2016 AT 5PM EST
About the fellowship:
The Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP) led by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network has the pleasure to announce that we are opening Fellowship opportunities for journalists to attend the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) being held in Marrakesh, Morocco.
Formed in 2007 by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), Panos London and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the CCMP has brought developing country journalists to the annual UN climate summits since 2007. This has enabled them to cover the summit for their home media organizations, work with experienced and knowledgeable journalists from around the world, and gain a multifaceted understanding of climate change’s global impact. Numerous regional organizations also play a supporting role in the partnership.
As part of the Fellowships, the CCMP will cover travel, lodging and daily subsistence expenses, help with the press accreditation process, and provide other support services. Please note that, although the costs for visa applications can be reimbursed, the process of obtaining a visa is a Fellow’s responsibility.
During the COP 22, the Fellows will benefit from a series of specially designed activities, including an orientation session, daily breakfast briefings, and most likely a field trip and a media clinic.
