The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) was established by Internews to improve the quantity and quality of environmental coverage. We create networks of environmental journalists in countries where they don't exist, and build their capacity where they do. Through training workshops and development of training materials, support for production and distribution, the provision of small grants, and the creation of unique GeoJournalism platforms that combine traditional reporting on key regions with interactive maps and visualized data, EJN works with journalists around the world to find innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental issues of today.
