Application invited for Climate and Environmental Justice Media Fellowship

Closing date-15th July 2019
Young feminist organizing is springing up in all corners of the globe - from Mexico to Morocco to Malaysia - powered by brave women, girls and trans* youth who are creating the change the world needs. FRIDA provides young leaders with the resources they need to amplify their voices and bring attention to their work, and the support, flexibility and network to keep their vision and influence alive.

 FRIDA is thrilled to announce Climate and Environmental Justice Media Fellowship, a five-month program designed to provide mentorship and training to Global South young feminists on climate and environmental justice activism and digital journalism. This Fellowship is for young feminists interested in amplifying the issues at the intersection of climate and environmental justice and gender rights and strengthening their critical, sharp, and influential writing.


You are a young feminist (between ages of 18 and 30) based anywhere in Sub Saharan Africa, South Asia, Southeast and East Asia, the Pacific, The Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and Central, Southern, Eastern Europe and Central and North Asia and willing to travel in the pursuit of the story. Applicants based in Western Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand are not eligible to apply for this fellowship.
● You are passionate about climate and environmental justice and young feminist organizing, and want to communicate this specifically through writing to your community and the world. You are someone who is locally, regionally or internationally connected to networks, groups, and communities in the climate and environmental movements and/or gender justice movements, and who wants to share with a wider audience the context of your local and regional struggles, and the alternatives, solutions, and projects that your communities are working on.
● You are particularly dedicated to an intersectional lens and bridging the communication between climate and environmental justice movements and gender justice movements. You are a natural communicator, skilled narrator, social leader or community organiser who know that this work of communicating in of itself is important movement-building work.
● You have a background in activism and writing, especially organising with or in collaboration with rural, indigenous, and black youth and grassroots communities, LBTQIA groups, feminist collectives, or workers’ unions, and are keen in gaining more experience as a journalist, writer, and advocate by working with fellow organisers, established editors and publishing on an international platform.
● You can be dedicated to the fellowship, support your cohort fellows, and communicate reliably about your progress, obstacles and questions to the fellowship team. Ideally you are ready to challenge yourself, your politics and writing through this fellowship and create brave, original, sharp analysis, reporting and content.
● You can communicate and write proficiently in English, as this will be the main language used during the fellowship program.
