Professional development grants for enviromental journalism

Earth Investigations Programme

This grant programme supports activities and services for environmental investigative journalism as a whole. It seeks to promote collective development to build the capacities of environmental investigative journalists, by providing funding to project ideas from organisations and institutions for training and professional development programmes, i.e. skills-focused professional training or fellowship programmes targeting investigative journalists to upskill their capacities to report on environment related issues.

This is part of a larger programme: The Earth Investigations Programme supported by Arcadia.
