Deadline: February 24, 2019

Applications are open for the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD) Media Fellowship 2019. Young journalists are invited to become part of Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue and report on the discussions and innovative energy solutions.

Reporting on issues such as the international energy transition and raising awareness about the opportunities of renewable energies and energy efficiency are crucial in order to meet the targets from the Paris Climate Agreement.

During the conference, the BETD Media Fellows will report on the conference sessions through social media channels, especially Twitter, video clips, interviews and reports and the official website. In addition, BETD Media Fellows will have the opportunity to submit photos, stories and interviews and to report on energy-related stories from their own countries.
