Climate Tracker are awarding two fully funded fellowships for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Intersession in May in Germany:
They are looking for young writers from around the world who want to make a big impact in their countries by writing about the necessity to stay below 1.5 degrees of warming and the ways in which we can reach that target: 100% renewable energy, natural climate solutions and zero fossil fuels and their vested influence.
In 2018, the most prominent scientific body on climate change issues, the IPCC, will release the Special Report on 1.5° (SR1.5). It is also the year of the Talanoa Dialogue, during which countries have to increase their ambition on fighting climate change.
We need to remind the governments and decision makers that we can and must stay below 1.5 degrees of warming. We need a transition to 100% renewable energy and foster natural climate solutions, like reforestation and forest protection. The interests of the fossil fuel and biofuels industries are trying to delay action, but we must act now!
