Applications are open for the United Nations Foundation Thomas Lovejoy Memorial Press Fellowship 2022. The Press Fellowship will bring a group of journalists to the heart of the Amazon to explore issues of biodiversity, deforestation, and sustainable development.
The trip will take place the week of October 17, 2022 against the backdrop of a national election to determine Brazil’s next president, just three weeks ahead of COP27, and two months before the Biodiversity COP in December.
The Fellowship is named after the late Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, the renowned ecologist and Senior Fellow for the UN Foundation who first popularized the term “biodiversity.” Ten journalists will travel to Manaus, Brazil before spending three days at the remote research station in the Amazon, known as Camp 41, where they will have the opportunity to take guided tours of the world’s largest rainforest.
The application deadline is 11:59PM EST on Friday, August 5, 2022. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an interview.
