Collaboration. Storytelling. Action.
There has never been a more urgent time to document how climate change is affecting communities, culture and our planet — and what we can do to stop it.
The Nordic-Canadian Fellowship in Environmental Journalism offers emerging journalists from Canada and the Nordic Region the chance to learn, travel and dive deep into some of the biggest threats facing the environment today. The majority of the fellowship will be conducted virtually on a part-time basis over the course of 18 months, along with three (3) potential travel opportunities (pending COVID-19 restrictions). During this time, fellows will participate in journalism boot camps, conduct reporting trips, and contribute to an exhibition as part of Nordic Bridges in 2022. It is possible for the fellowship to be conducted alongside full-time school or work.
The fellowship is open to emerging journalists ages 18–25. The project supports all journalistic mediums – writers, videographers, photographers, producers, and podcasters alike are encouraged to apply.
Applications must be submitted by Friday, April 23, 2021 at 11:59pm PDT to be considered.
Young people have been at the forefront of global climate action. As the climate crisis accelerates, youth-led, powerful journalism will play a crucial role in spotlighting important issues and holding power to account.Lex Harvey, Journalist and Fellowship Coordinator
