CLIMATE PRESS PROGRAM IN TUNISIA

Apply here

Deadline: 4th May 2018

Description

The Arab region is one of the most affected areas of climate change, where climate change threatens the future of many countries, including Tunisia. Studies have shown that climate change affects the health of the population in Tunisia, leads to instability in the level of rainfall and affects the economy and tourism, and some Tunisian cities are threatened to sink completely. Despite all these damage, however, the level of environmental awareness in Tunisia remains low and the coverage rate is still low. The media does not care about this issue and is classified as a non-essential problem.

Climate Trader believes that in order to raise environmental awareness there must be a public debate in the media in the country. This is why Climate Traker has launched a special program for Tunisia this year to train a group of journalists on the basics of climate journalism and enable them to write about environmental topics and reports in a way that can contribute to raising awareness and influencing the climate policies of the government positively.

How did you participate in the competition?

In case you wish to participate in the competition, all you have to do is write one article on four topics and publish it in a media outlet in Tunisia or in the Arab region. After the article is published, you must share the link with us through our online application. We will share and evaluate your article and share some tips with you.

The Future of Renewable Energy in Tunisia How can Tunisia ensure the success of energy programs? –

Climate Change in Tunisia: Problems and Solutions? –

The steps that have been taken in Tunisia on the way to respond to the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations in relation to the climate are sufficient or are still far from achieving what is required?
