Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering 12 reporting grants to support the production of in-depth stories that will call attention to critical environmental issues in the Pacific region. EJN is pleased to offer up to 12 story grants to selected journalists from the Pacific Islands to produce in-depth or investigative stories on environmental and climate issues in the region. It is expected that at least six of these stories will be focused on ocean issues, such as efforts and solutions to protect the ocean, ways to increase ocean’s resilience to climate change and regulate sustainable use of its resources.

EJN aims to support the production of stories that raise awareness about ocean issues in the Pacific region, and drive conversation among communities and policy makers at the local, national, and regional level, bringing about positive change for a sustainable future for all Pacific Islanders.

EJN expects to award 12 grants of up to US$1000 each.
