The Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP) Reporting Fellowship Program is inviting you to join and report on the annual UN climate talks.

If you are interested in covering the 29th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP29), then this is the opportunity for you.

The Climate Change Media Partnership Reporting Fellowship Program

This Fellowship is a great way to cover the climate negotiations and gain an understanding of the actions countries are taking to address climate change’s global impact. Moreover, you will have a chance to benefit from working alongside knowledgeable media trainers, and senior journalists with experience covering UN climate summits.

As a CCMP Fellow, you will receive all the necessary resources and technical support to be best prepared for reporting at the conference. This will include a pre-COP virtual workshop to meet the team, discuss reporting opportunities, and ask any questions you might have.

You will then travel to Baku to attend the entire duration of the UN climate negotiations. Moreover, you will participate in daily briefings, networking events, and interviews with high-level officials.

Being a CCMP Fellow also means you can enjoy the following:

  • non-refundable economy-class airfare
  • covered accommodation and meals
  • travel medical insurance
  • reimbursements of visa costs
