The United Nations Foundation have announced a special global issues fellowship focused on climate change to be held in December 2015 as part of Earth To Paris and alongside COP21. As part of the fellowship, journalists will receive a stipend to help cover travel costs and will have access to exclusive briefings.
“We need the right mix of journalists, experts and advocates in Paris if we are to have a robust global conversation on climate change around the conference,” “We hope this fellowship will give journalists the tools and access necessary to advance their reporting on this critical issue.” said Aaron Sherinian, Chief Communications and Marketing Officer at the UN Foundation.
From November 30 to December 11, the United Nations is convening COP21, the Paris Climate Summit. Nearly 200 parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change will gather in Paris to revisit existing climate agreements and to achieve a new universal agreement on climate change. This new climate agreement will reflect a bottom-up approach based on national commitments.
As governments convene for the conference, Earth To Paris, a diverse coalition of groups – from foundations to technology companies to media organizations and more – will also convene around the need for strong climate action.
At Earth To Paris – Le Hub on December 7 and 8, the UN Foundation and coalition partners will bring together global influencers, civil society groups, businesses, scientists, and citizens to showcase climate solutions and to highlight the connection between people and planet. Earth To Paris will engage people around the world in the United Nations dialogue happening in Paris during COP21.
