Call for applications - Adopt a Negotiator COP20 Fellowship
Have you got a passion for climate action?
Can you make the world listen to what you have to say?
If you can, The Global Call for Climate Action is looking for young, innovative journalists, bloggers, writers, activists and creatives to become Adopt a Negotiator Fellows for 2014.
These Fellows will combine their passion and skills with an amazing opportunity to help shape their government’s role in solving climate change.
They’ll join a team of passionate, dedicated and talented activists from around the world; participating in moments that will shape if and how the governments respond adequately to the climate challenge. Their efforts will build on a proud legacy of past ‘Negotiator Trackers,’ who have helped shape the UN climate negotiations ever since 2009.
If you think you can help shape the direction of this year’s climate change negotiations by creating change in your own country, then this is an opportunity not to be missed.
This year, we will be offering all short-listed candidates the chance to prove their skills in the lead up to the conference through training opportunities with some of the world’s best climate change communicators and activists, and a support network to help get your voice where it counts.
You’ll also have the opportunity to join a team of passionate, dedicated and talented activists from around the world, working together to actively transform the way climate change is communicated in their home countries. This team will work together in the lead up to this year’s UNFCCC Conference of Parties in Lima, Peru.
If selected, you may also have the opportunity to travel to Lima in December this year as a Fully Funded member of the Adopt a Negotiator’s – Negotiator Tracker – team.
We’re looking to build one of the most dynamic, diverse and innovative media teams that has ever covered the climate negotiations. The UNFCCC is racing towards a global treaty in 2015, and this year is as critical as ever. We need the best bloggers, writers, social media gurus and activists with a passion for climate change to come together – using their skills to inspire our leaders to take significant action to protect us all from the impacts of climate change. We need to make this year’s UN climate negotiations the most successful ever.
- Applicants must be 18 to 30 years of age;
- Able to actively contribute to the Adopt a Negotiator project as a writer from June this year through to May of 2015.
- Available to attend the UN Climate Change Conference in Lima (December 1-12) and strategy development meetings in the days leading up to the Conference.
- But most importantly, applicants must be Amazing!
If you have the skills, passion and creativity needed to push your country forward on climate action, we want to hear from you.
All applications need to be in by midnight on the 11th of May (Pacific Time Zone UTC -08:00)
