SJN – LEDE Fellowship

We are excited to announce that INKLINE is one of the 21 fellows of Solutions Journalism Network’s LEDE Fellowship.

What is the LEDE Fellowship?

LEDE fellowship is Solutions Journalism Network’s first programme allowing journalism entrepreneurs to create and lead projects that spread solutions journalism in their communities.

What is our project?

Often described as the biggest challenge of our generation, the climate crisis is already having an impact on people’s lives. But, as scary as this may sound, the reality is not all doom and gloom; movements are arising across the globe, citizens and organisations even pushing governments to take immediate action – to prevent climate breakdown.

As an international media platform, we want to highlight community projects and initiatives that are focussing on fighting for future generations and are working towards developing mitigation techniques.

We are looking at producing in-depth solutions-based stories (upwards of 2,000 words) across all key geographical regions; to give our readers a flavour of the different strategies that are being developed across the world.

Call for pitches!

We are now calling for pitches from the Africa, North America, and South America regions. The stories from Asia, Europe and Oceania are in the works and will be published soon.

Send us a 250-word pitch for an in-depth solutions-based story about the climate crisis and the innovative ways that communities in your region are using to mitigate its impacts. Please provide more than one example of climate crisis solutions from your region.

Training will be provided by the Solutions Journalism Network to all selected journalists. Yes, it is a paid opportunity.

The deadline to send in your pitches (Africa, North America, and South America) is April 5th, 23:59 GMT.

Thank you for sending in your pitches. Please note that due to the high volume of pitches that we have received we will only get back to the shortlisted journalists.
