The energy transition has become one of the defining global stories of our time. Its implications and innovations cross traditional boundaries between nations, business sectors and journalistic beats. We at the foundation-funded non-profit Clean Energy Wire CLEW are committed to supporting journalists covering the epochal shift towards a low-emissions economy that is crucial to meet the pledge 195 countries signed up to with the Paris Agreement. We believe a cross-border perspective is key to reporting on this global transition. Many major energy and climate policy stories cannot be properly explored in a purely national context and demand an audience beyond a single domestic readership.
This is why Clean Energy Wire CLEW is offering three grants for the most promising international collaborative reporting projects. We will support collaborative media teams from at least two different countries, on stories with international significance.
Theapplication deadline is 15 September 2017.
What Clean Energy Wire CLEW offers
Clean Energy Wire CLEW will support successful applicants’ stories with a grant of between EUR4,000 and 6,000. The three successful journalist teams will be invited to the 2017 Clean Energy Wire CLEW Network Conference, which will take place in Bonn, Germany, 10-11 November 2017. Each team will present their project pitch and an audience vote will decide which will receive the award of EUR 6,000, EUR 5,000 or EUR 4,000.
