The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering Coastal Resilience Story Grants to journalists worldwide to support the production of in-depth stories that will call attention to coastal resiliency and solutions for coastal issues.

Communities and policymakers in coastal areas lack access to information about solutions to build resilience to climate change. Media and other information providers in coastal areas need resources in order to communicate complicated climate change information about coastal issues effectively. Trusted, clear, timely, and actionable information is needed to address vulnerabilities associated with climate change and to support building resilience.

With support from the Kingfisher Foundation, journalists are given the chance to cover coastal resilience in their communities. These journalists will receive support from journalist mentors and a coastal resilience expert to increase media coverage of this critical issue in their region.

All stories must have a solutions-focused angle; stories without this will not be considered.

Coastal Resilience Story Grants proposals that focus on topics or stories that have not been widely covered are preferred. Issues that have already received a lot of media coverage or don’t provide unique angles to environmental challenges are less likely to be selected.
