About the fellowship:
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), supported by a grant from Internews' Earth Journalism Network, is providing a six-month media fellowship to digital and print journalists, radio broadcasters, documentary/short film makers, video bloggers, and anyone else, who has a demonstrated flair for mass communication and is from the Himalayan region. The objective of the fellowship is to build their capacity on climate change journalism and communication.
The programme will bring together well-known climate change and communication experts to train media professionals in the fundamental knowledge of climate science and help them correlate local conditions to the wider context of climate change. It will guide these professionals to create narratives on how local populations can find solutions and manage climate change more effectively. It will also orient journalists to use research to hold relevant agencies accountable, and challenge decisions that are not conducive to people and the environment.
