An online session to learn about climate-solutions reporting and our grant program

In recent years, we’ve put in a lot of effort to challenge and change the way journalism has been traditionally practiced to create awareness about a more holistic approach to storytelling – a way forward that shows the “whole” story by breaking away from negative, problem-centric reporting to more nuanced, evidence-based, solutions-focused journalism. 

We are proud and excited to announce the launch of a two-year support program to stimulate the production of cross-border, solutions-oriented, and investigative reporting across Europe. This first-of-its-kind program brings an opportunity to European newsrooms to collaborate and innovate! With this project, we are looking to recruit a total of 18 newsrooms that can earn up to 40,000 euros of grant funding along with training and mentoring support.  What are the benefits you ask? More details can be found here.
