DW Akademie, in collaboration with UNFCCC, is bringing ten journalists from the Pacific region to Bonn to report from COP 23.
Ten journalists from print, online, radio and TV get the opportunity to report first-hand from the conference and receive media training at DW Akademie. They discussed and shared ideas about climate change topics in e-sessions before COP 23.
During the conference from November 6th until November 17th, the participants will report from COP23 for their home media. Trainers from DW Akademie provide feedback throughout. Their articles will also be featured on a dedicated DW Akademie web page.
The ten participants were selected by a judging committee consisting of two members of UNFCCC; two from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs communications branch; and two independent judges representing the Fijian COP23 Presidency.
For the journalists, reporting on climate change means: Raising awareness for the concerns of the people living in the Pacific region.
