About this opportunity

Devastating heatwaves, extreme weather events, and crippling droughts leave no corner of the globe untouched. However, it is the Global South that bears the brunt of these catastrophic impacts. In a groundbreaking collaboration, CNN Academy and The Rockefeller Foundation are uniting to act. Together, they are searching for 15 driven young journalists across the Global South who are dedicated to shedding light on the profound effects of the climate crisis within their home countries. At the conclusion of the program, participants will produce a compelling short documentary spotlighting the impact of the climate crisis. The documentaries will be entirely shot and edited by the participants.


Selected participants will receive full sponsorship to attend the media training program, which includes travel expenses (if applicable), accommodation, training materials, and meals during the program. Upon completion of the training, participants will also receive a CNN Academy Certificate of Completion.
