The Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP) will be providing climate change fellowships for journalists that will include the opportunity to report on the Climate Change Summit, in Poznan, Poland in December 2008.

If you are a working journalist from a developing country in the electronic, print, radio or television media and have experience in reporting on development or environmental issues you may be interested in applying for this opportunity. If so please email CCMP@panos.org.uk and we will send you information about how to apply later this year.

The Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP) regularly provides fellowships for journalists and brought 40 journalists to last year's Bali Summit. The CCMP provided editorial support, daily briefings on the negotiations, a field trip, and a matchmaking service that linked journalists with negotiators, scientists, NGOs and indigenous people to interview. The journalists also attended a number of CCMP events such as the Media Clinic where 18 panel experts discussed topics such as biofuels, carbon trading and adaptation.

For more information about the CCMP and some comments from the journalists we took to Bali please see the following:
