Fully Funded !!
Climate Tracker is launching its new and exciting COP22 campaign.
Join now for your chance to win a Fully Funded trip to COP22 to become a Negotiator Tracker.
- To join the campaign, you only have to sign in to http://app.climatetracker.org/and join the specific competitions.
An agreement was reached last year in Paris to stop climate change and keep the temperature increase below 1.5 degrees. As the world continues to heat up, many countries are already facing the impacts of climate change. It is time to implement and commit to higher ambition in mitigation and adaptation. The world needs to act now!
However, this action is being delayed by the influence of the fossil fuel industry and its interests, and we need to shed light to stop them from doing their corrupt practices.
That’s why we are launching our COP22 Campaign now. We need to up the pressure on negotiators and Fossil Fuel companies alike. And we need to find the 6 best Negotiator Tracker Candidates who will join the Climate Tracker team in Morocco!
How it works:
The #TrackingCOP22 campaign will last until end of November and will have 2 broad publishing windows.
- 1st publishing window: Impacts Of Climate Change And The Guilt of the Fossil Fuel Industry
The first publishing window will last from the 29th of August to the 7th of October. Every two weeks you will be given a topic to write about, having to write at least one article on each topic to be eligible for our prizes. But you can write more than that if you want!
The topics will organise as following:
Week 1 and 2 (29 Aug-9 Sep): Describe impacts of climate change in your country or region and why we need to keep temperature below 1.5 degrees
Week 3 and 4 (12-23 Sep): The fossil fuel industry banned from climate change negotiations, just as it was done with the Tobacco industry
Week 5 and 6 (26 Sep-7 Oct): We need to keep the fossil fuel and tobacco industries accountable and make them pay for their damage
Prizes include paid writing fellowships with Climate Tracker to help you publish and become an awesome writer, and also spots to join our team in COP22 in Marrakech.
