PEJN was launched in Tonga in May, 2018 during the Pacific Media Summit and is the Pacific’s network for environment journalists. PEJN is a product of the COP23 in Bonn, Germany.
In 2017 a group of 10 Pasifika journalists were selected by the COP23 Secretariat for their coverage of climate change stories and issues. The 10 were guests at the famous German media company Deutsche Welle and attended special training on climate change reporting with the Deutsche Welle Academy.
