These stories are part of a series of stories focusing on climate change and youth-driven initiatives in mitigating the effects of climate change funded by CIVICUS and will also feed into a final data journalism project including interactive maps and stories.

Story pitches should focus on the local impacts of climate change and/or innovative adaptation solutions initiated by young people in the journalist’s country.

While much has been said about the global science of climate change, they want the applicant to connect the science, theory and country-level data to the reality of how people in applicants country are being affected on a daily basis.

How is climate change affecting various areas in rural parts of applicants country – including energy, environment, agriculture, food security, water, land, disasters, health, livelihoods, socioeconomic development, even education and culture? (Please be specific and focus on one or two areas in their pitch.

  • What are the day-to-day realities of climate change in applicants home country, on a human level?
  • How are individual lives being affected, and what are their stories?
  • What are unique stories of youth organizations and individual youths who are leading initiatives that are successfully adapting or mitigating climate change?

Applicants story pitch should also contain a plan to integrate data analysis and visualization of climate change impacts on different sectors or topics relevant to applicants story; i.e. energy, agriculture, food security, water, land, disasters, health, livelihoods, etc. “Geo-coded” or geographical data is the most preferred, since they will use it to create interactive maps and visualizations. However, please feel free to integrate any other sources of credible data.
