Opportunity Description

The UN Foundation is an independent non-profit organization established to collaborate closely with the UN to address humanity’s greatest challenges, develop cross-sector initiatives to address issues at scale, and promote global advancement.
The fully funded Thomas Lovejoy Memorial Press Reporting Fellowship 2022 is now accepting applications. A journalism fellowship sponsored by the United Nations Foundation was made public and will take a team of journalists deep into the Amazon to study issues related to biodiversity, deforestation, and sustainable development. The journey will take place the week of October 17, 2022, barely three weeks before COP27 and two months before the Biodiversity COP in December, against the backdrop of a national election to choose Brazil’s next president. The Fellowship bears the name of Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, a famous ecologist and Senior Fellow for the UN Foundation who coined the word “biodiversity” and died in 2007. Ten journalists will fly to Manaus, Brazil, and then spend three days at Camp 41, a remote research facility in the Amazon where they will get the chance to go on guided tours of the biggest jungle in the world.
