Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering around 20 reporting grants to support the production of in-depth stories that will call attention to critical environmental issues in the Asia-Pacific region.

EJN will provide story grants and one-on-one mentorship to selected journalists in the Asia-Pacific region. Through this activity, EJN aims to increase the quality and quantity of environmental stories from the region; and build the capacity of local journalists to improve their coverage of climate and environmental topics.

They aim to support the production of stories that raise awareness about environmental and climate issues, amplify the voices of those most impacted and drive meaningful conversation among communities and policymakers at the local, national, and regional level, bringing about positive change.

They encourage stories that report on potential solutions and highlight how vulnerable communities are responding to environmental challenges. They are interested in supporting stories that use relevant data to illustrate the issue in a compelling and easy-to-understand way.

They are specifically seeking story pitches on cross-sectoral stories, especially stories that explore the impacts of environmental threats on other sectors.

Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is pleased to offer up to 20 story grants of around USD 2,000 each to selected journalists from the Asia-Pacific to produce in-depth or investigative stories on environmental and climate issues in the region.
