Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering around 20 story grants of USD 1,000 each to youth journalists in the Asia-Pacific region, to support the production of in-depth stories on environmental and climate injustice.

By supporting youth journalists, EJN hopes to build their reporting capacity, improve youth representation in the media and raise more awareness about environmental justice and their experiences. Selected journalists will be paired with mentors who will support them to report the stories they believe need to be told, their way. If needed, mentors will also guide journalists on how to pitch stories to media outlets, how to find sources, interview experts and disseminate their work.
