The Climate Connection: Future News Worldwide Fund is a professional development opportunity grant, offered by our worldwide news partners to the alumni of our Future News Worldwide programme.
The fund was created this year to support vital climate change related professional journalism activities in communities around the world, and is designed to support initiatives focused on the eligible Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) countries and states.
As one of the largest networks of young journalists globally, Future News Worldwide offers a unique platform for media professionals starting their career. Alumni were invited to apply at the beginning of the year for a grant of up to £3,000. After careful review and selection, we chose to fund 15 projects around the world.
We are delighted to showcase the outputs of our talented alumni now. From a mini-documentary in Ghana about tackling climate change during the pandemic, to a podcast in Ukraine looking at the overlooked environmental crisis there, all the projects focus on pressing environmental issues that cannot be ignored. We know that clear and accurate reporting is vital in today’s media world. Young journalists, vloggers and writers are uniquely placed to bring these stories to light.
