We have a number of fellowships available for talented young people (ages 18 – 30) who are willing to actively contribute to Adopt a Negotiator between now and the end of the 2012, including attending the Doha Climate Change Conference this November.
Applicants must be 18 to 30 years of age; be able to attend the Doha Climate Change Conference from November 23rd to December 9th; and able to actively contribute to the Adopt a Negotiator project as an activist and blogger from August to December of this year.
You are a great communicator - Our Fellows are excellent at turning the complex and hard to communicate developments happening during climate negotiations into compelling, accessible, creative, actionable communications across multiple channels and mediums. Our primary tool is blogging – and you must be a skilled blogger – but the ability to leverage other communications tools and channels with strategic and/or large audiences via new and traditional media is key to their success.
Applicants will need to be:
Aged between 18 and 30;
Be able to attend fully the COP18 in Qatar (from November 23rd to December 8th 2012);
Be able to commit a few hours per week to prepare for the delegation in the coming months and act already as a negotiation tracker.
Fellows will be provided with:
The opportunity to play a specific role to promote progressive climate policies in your country;
The chance to be part of a team with many other amazing young activists/bloggers;
All support needed from our team and partner during the coming months (networking, capacity building);
Transportation to Doha, accommodation and a generous per diem during the Doha Climate Change Conference
