Climate change is not an abstract idea anymore; its effects are palpable and only expected to accelerate. From Delhi to Dibrugarh, Indian citizens are already beginning to witness the debilitating impact of a changing climate.
With an aim to document the human story behind this unravelling crisis, Youth Ki Awaaz Climate Correspondents Programme, will train a select cohort of journalists, storytellers, academicians and civil society actors in climate journalism and communication, and work with them on stories that highlight the impact of climate change on India’s most vulnerable and marginalized communities.
What is it?
A 5-week integrated bootcamp, where you will be trained in the basics of environmental journalism and climate change communication. The programme is designed for both full-time professionals and freelancers willing to devote 6-8 hours per week to the programme.
What will I learn?
What's in store for me?
