DANIDA Fellowship Centre and the Danish Embassy in Kenya are inviting journalists in Africa to apply for training on climate change reporting.
The prime goal of the training is to pave the way for climate news and feature stories that are relevant for Africans.
The organisers say the media plays an essential role in getting the message of climate change and the stories of adaptation and mitigation across to the public as well as to decision-makers.
When journalists tell well-informed and accurate climate stories, they help citizens and decision-makers understand the realities of climate change and the possible responses.
This learning programme themed, ‘Reporting from the African Frontline of the Global Climate Crisis’, is designed for professional journalists including photographers and videographers working in African print and broadcast media.
The participating journalists must have both experience and a keen interest in covering the global climate crisis and environmental issues.
The program begins in August with online sessions and continues until September with in-person sessions in Tanzania and Kenya.
Transfer from Tanzania to Nairobi will be provided. Journalists, photographers, and videographers in Africa can participate in this training.
The deadline for the submission of applications is June 16, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
