Applications call for Climate Tracker Fellowship 2020 for African Journalists. Climate Tracker in partnership with Hivos will be training and sending 6 amazing African journalists to cover the Sustainable Energy for All Forum in Rwanda, this May (26th-28th).
The Sustainable Energy for All Forum (SEforALL) will bring together the world’s most renowned energy experts and decision-makers in what is sure to be the premier global meeting on the unique energy challenges facing the continent.
This is an opportunity for young journalists from across Africa who want to write incredible stories about the energy challenges in their home country and make a big impact in their countries by publishing about energy. Moreover, this will be a career-defining opportunity to meet and learn from some of the key industry movers and shakers to journalist. This will be a vibrant meeting place to showcase action towards sustainable energy, with entrepreneurs, community leaders, city leaders, policymakers, financiers and investors in the energy space.
Climate Tracker Fellowship serves six African Journalists with an opportunity for a fully-funded fellowship to travel to Kigali for the event. In addition to that, fellows will have an opportunity to undergo exclusive training from leading energy experts and journalists, and an investigative story grant to cover energy issues back in their home country.
