ATREE think tank ranking press release ...More
The Forum of Environmental Journalists in India approached ATREE in late 2013 with a proposal inviting ATREE to be part of a new fellowship programme on environmental reporting. The objective of this three-month media fellowship by FEJI was to address the gap in in-depth, informed reporting on environmental issues in India; also identifying key issues on which good environmental reporting could have long term impacts. ATREE’s role was to offer knowledge and access to researchers and ongoing research communities in selected topics that the journalists had expressed an interest in. The journalists could accompany researchers, talk to communities, meet policy makers. The mandate for the journalists was to deliver articles on issues researched.
FEJI selected three Fellows for pursuing media research and writing stories based on their field work.
Some of the articles that have appeared in press as a result of this partnership:
Ananda Banerjee on less charismatic species and their habitat
Amit Upadhye on wetlands
Atul Kumar on water woes
