Applications are now open for the 3CS Media Fellowship – Climate Journalism from Marginalised Communities to support reportage on climate change in India, to understand how it affects people’s lives, in particular the lives of those who live at the margins of the society.
If field reporters had adequate time and resources, what journalistic stories would they choose that could best help inform public debate on climate change? How does climate change affect the daily lives of the most disadvantaged? How will it impact the life, wellbeing, and livelihood of marginalised communities in the longer term?
The fellowship will directly support journalists from underserved communities to cover such stories. While they hope to cover multiple geographies in subsequent editions of the Media Fellowship, this specific inaugural module focuses on original reportage done for and by those in the climate change frontlines in peninsular India.
