Media 21 Asia: Journalism and Climate Change
The project Media 21 Asia will support the presentation of issues relating to global warming in the local media scene in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The call for applications is aimed at the local media outlets (print media, television, radio, online media or blogs) which already have a certain amount of experience in dealing with environmental issues.
Three news organizations from the Philippines have been selected for the Media 21 Asia project launched last February 2015. Journalists from Environews.ph, Inquirer.net, and Rappler participated in a training workshop on reporting on the climate last May in Kuala Lumpur, and recently attended the Regional Forum on Climate Change in Bangkok where they were able to have fruitful exchanges with H.E. Philippe Zeller, French Ambassador at Large for Climate Negotiations for Asia and Oceania.
