APWLD Media Fellowship

APWLD is inviting five women media professionals across Asia-Pacific region to participate in our inaugural media fellowship programme that aims to strengthen media advocacy on grassroots issues through a feminist lens. Selected journalists will be given a stipend of USD 1,000 to cover expenses for research and travel according to workplans co-developed with APWLD. Our fellowship theme this year is on climate change as we wish to strengthen a feminist analysis on this topic and climate justice, especially in mainstream and alternative media spaces.

During this time period women journalists will have an option to produce news articles, features, audio-video content/documentary or digital stories with a feminist lens that highlight the linkages between gender, ecological conflicts and climate change.

APWLD is a regional feminist network of women’s organisations and activists in Asia-Pacific, committed to women’s human rights and feminist movements. APWLD’s members are drawn from 27 countries and the Secretariat is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. If you are deeply committed to covering feminist, progressive movements and challenging structural globalised inequalities, please consider applying for this opportunity. 

How Will The Fellowship Work?
APWLD will invite five selected women journalists to Thailand for a two day capacity building workshop on women’s human rights and climate justice. At the workshop, the media fellows will have an opportunity to meet women environmental rights defenders and climate justice advocates from Asia Pacific. Based on interactions with grassroots activists and experts, the fellows, in consultation with APWLD, will develop a plan on how to produce critical analysis on women, climate change and climate justice.
