    Jefferson Fellowships
    The Jefferson Fellowships program was launched in 1967 to enhance public understanding through the news media of cultures, issues and trends in the Asia Pacific region, broadly defined as Asia, the Pacific Islands and the United States. The Fellowships provide U.S. and Asia Pacific journalists with an opportunity to broaden their understanding of Asia Pacific issues and build a professional network through one week of dialogue with professional colleagues and experts at the East-West Center, followed by a two-week study tour to cities in Asia or the U.S. 
    Fall 2009 Jefferson Fellowships
    Theme:  The Right Climate for Confronting Climate Change?
    The new United States presidential administration of Barack Obama has increased attention to climate change in advance of the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in December 2009. With this backdrop, the Fall 2009 Jefferson Fellowships program will explore the ability of U.S. domestic and foreign policy to confront the important economic challenges and opportunities involved in addressing climate change and its consequences. While near-term costs may affect the livelihoods of Americans already struggling in the current U.S. recession, addressing climate change also presents opportunities to strengthen important parts of the economy and create jobs. In addition, the Fall 2009 program will examine how the issue of climate change may serve as a way for the United States to rebuild partnerships and alliances around the world and to bolster national security. 
    The program will begin in Honolulu with one week of discussions, field visits and participant presentations that explore the challenge of climate change throughout the Asia Pacific-U.S. region. Participants will share impacts, responses and policy challenges from the perspectives of their own countries. The study tour will focus on policy challenges and opportunities for the United States through visits to key destinations on the U.S. mainland.
    Program Dates:  October 25 – November 14, 2009
    Study Tour Destinations:  Monterey and Palo Alto, California; Boulder, Colorado; Washington, DC
    Who Can Apply:  Working print, broadcast, and online journalists in the United States, the Pacific Islands, and Asia with a minimum of five years of professional experience.  Applicants must have the ability to communicate in English in a professional, multi-cultural environment.

    Program Operation: May 18-23, 2009
    Deadline to Apply: March 2, 2009
    Notification of Acceptance: March 9, 2009
    The Environmental Journalism Fellowship provides working
    journalists in broadcast, print and online media much-needed
    information about tropical ecosystems, providing deep
    background in tropical ecology to enhance the accuracy of
    reporting on environmental issues. Including a historic estate,
    ancient Hawaiian cultural sites, and botanical collections
    extending back to the period of Hawaiian royalty in the late
    1800s, the National Tropical Botanical Garden offers a rich living
    classroom in which to teach basic concepts in tropical biology,
    indigenous use of plants for medicine, as well as the ecology of tropical fauna—the Garden is a nesting
    site for both threatened green sea turtles and endangered water birds.
    The focus of the fellowship is immersion and not advocacy; the intent is to increase the depth of the
    overall reporting and not only to provide source material for current news stories. Upon completion of
    the course, fellows will not only have gained authority to better cover environmental issues in general but
    will also have contributed to an annually accumulating handbook for reporting on tropical ecological
    Lodging, airport transfer, ground transportation, and continental breakfast and
    lunch on program days are provided. Journalists are responsible for their own
    airfare to Līhu‘e, Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i. Please accompany your application with two
    samples of your most recently published work in print, audio, or video clip or
    indicate a news website showing your current work.

    The World Bank Essay Competition 2009

    (Just a commercial from World Bank…)

    WANTED: The Next Generation of ‘Green’ Entrepreneurs
    Climate change has been identified as one of the biggest global threats of our time. Scientists agree that global warming and extreme climate phenomena can be increasingly attributed to human activity – in particular, heavy emission of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, resulting from industrial processes.
    Solutions to those pressing problems could lie in the rapidly growing ‘green economy’: environmentally sustainable enterprises, technological innovations (new sources of clean, renewable energy), energy efficiency measures, economic incentives for low-carbon choices, etc. How can youth contribute?

    The Essay Competition 2009 invites youth to share ideas on:
    How does climate change affect you?
    How can you tackle climate change through youth-led solutions?

    Please answer both questions:
    1. How does climate change affect you, your country, town or local community? How do you think it will affect you in the future? Think about the consequences for employment, health, security and other areas of your life.
    2. What can you do, working together with your peers, to address the problem of climate change in your country, town or local community? Think specifically about the role of youth-led initiatives in the ‘green economy’.
