Youth Climate Journalism Fellowship to UN Climate Action Summit

September 19, 2019 - September 26, 2019

New York, NY

The Stanley Foundation is partnering with Climate Tracker and the United Nations Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit Team to organize a fellowship of eight young journalists to attend and report from the Global Climate Strike, UN Youth Climate Summit, UN Climate Action Summit, and other related events taking place during Climate Week NYC. Early-career climate journalists from around the world will travel to New York to report on climate action and the efforts of young people who are pressing for more ambition from world leaders and others to combat the climate crisis before it’s too late.

The Youth Climate Summit is the first of its kind and is intended to be a platform for young leaders, activists, innovators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers to showcase their climate solutions at the United Nations. Two days later at the Climate Action Summit, one of the nine interdependent tracks of the Summit will be Youth Engagement and Public Mobilization, which focuses on how people are mobilizing worldwide to take action on climate change and how young people are integrated and represented on the path to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. In addition to experiencing and covering these two summits firsthand, fellows will receive journalism training, information, and resources as well as access to interviews and other media opportunities to strengthen their reporting during their week in New York. The eight fellows are being selected from a global writing competition that asks journalists aged 18-32 to write and publish a story about a youth movement or young leader pushing for climate action in their country.
