The Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) is offering a six-month energy transition story grant entitled the Jaime Espina Klima Correspondents Fellowship, in honor of the late journalist and media workers’ advocate Jose Jaime “Nonoy” Espina.
The Fellowship invites the participation of full-time journalists and freelancers in the Philippines, with preference to those working in the provinces. It will provide space for the most compelling local energy transition stories, particularly narratives that focus on transformational challenges, and those which go beyond vulnerability and dwell on agency and hope.
This story grant will support the research, production, and publication of stories that surface compelling but under-reported narratives surrounding the energy transition and low carbon resilient development challenges and opportunities through an online mentorship program that will run from June to November 2022.
