Internews Launches Environmental Journalism Awards Competition
Celebrating World Environment Day
Watch the video, "Communication, Climate Change and the Earth Journalism Awards"
Internews launched the Earth Journalism Awards competition on World Environment Day today with a call to professional and citizen journalists around the world to enter their best reporting on climate change. Winners will be flown to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen this December, where they will cover these pivotal negotiations and be honoured at a high-profile awards ceremony.
“It is very important to deepen public understanding of climate change and the urgent need for an agreement in Copenhagen. The media has a vital role to play both in explaining what is required for the world to be able to make a dramatic shift towards a low carbon society and to be able to adapt to the inevitable effects of climate change. I welcome, therefore, the Earth Journalism Awards initiative,” said Yvo de Boer, the Executive Director of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). (Full Story)
