Climate Journalism

A farmer struggling against crop failure. A climate migrant hoping for a new life. The complex story of climate change has to be told by listening to individual people. But how to find a farmer in Armenia, Ukraine or Kyrgystan to become the hero of your next publication? By networking climate journalists from all over Europe, we facilitate reporting that adds often omitted stories from Eastern Europe to create the whole picture. In our projects we train participants to analyse policies and figures. We bring them together with experts and peers. And we fund collaborative or even crossborder publications. They deserve to be taken note of!
