Apply to join the ClimateTracker 2022 Digital Content Creators Hub in the Philippines


Deadline: September 12, 2022

Are you a storyteller based in Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao or Manila? Are you passionate about environmental and climate issues? Do you want to improve your multimedia production skills? Then this ClimateTracker digital content creator hub is for you!

The Philippines is increasingly dealing with the effects of climate change, from extreme rainfall, natural disasters to rising sea levels. But stories and ideas about it are not commonly found in everyday conversations.

That’s why Climate Tracker has partnered with Oxfam International to launch the Digital Content Creators Hub for storytellers across the Philippines! The hub will facilitate multimedia training for storytellers like you to produce more engaging content about the environment and climate change.

During the fellowship, 15 fellows will complete a fun online training. It will focus on developing skills in climate communication and multimedia production to help them produce their individual stories. The top 8 scholarship recipients will then be selected for a three-day bootcamp in Manila, for more in-depth and individualized training by expert mentors.

  • Holistic multimedia training to enrich your content production
