Project Survival Media: Call for entries from the youth !

An NGO called Project Survival Media has organized a terrific opportunity for young journalists and others. National origin is NOT a bar! Deadline September 11. More information is added herewith. Any further questions, please feel free to email the coordinators, Shadia Fayne Wood (shadia.fayne@gmail.com) or Mayank Bubna (mayankbubna@gmail.com) directly.

**Do you want to report on the most compelling stories of the climate crisis?  Are you an amateur photographer who wants to greatly improve your skills while doing your part to save the planet? Or maybe you are a videographer wanting to publish your work on 17 youth blogs in 15 languages*

Project Survival Media is calling all passionate youth journalists who want to use their skills to:
 -   Launch “Survival,” to the forefront of the international political debate
 -   Amplify voices underrepresented by traditional media, and
 -   Report on the most compelling climate stories from around the world.

 We are a global youth journalism network that aims to influence the outcome of the COP 15 by broadcasting the most critical message of our time: As world leaders negotiate a new climate treaty, “Survival is Not Negotiable.”


We are seven media teams, one for each continent.  We build stories together that focus on those roles in society most impacted by climate change: factory workers, farmers, mothers, organizers, and health care providers.

* Who is eligible?*
 -    Any young person between the ages of 15-30 who
 -    Has some experience in any of the following: blogging, reporting, photography, or videography,
 -    Has either a background in climate change, human rights issues, or global or local environmental justice struggles.
 -    Lives anywhere on one of the seven continents  - aka Planet Earth.
