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.

Few topics are as ripe for investigation as the environment, and in-depth reporting is something long prioritized at the Earth Journalism Network.
The Earth Journalism Network, Internews’ environmental program, has recently awarded grants to 36 reporters, 14 from the Bay of Bengal region and another 22 from the broader Asia-Pacific region, to report on climate and environmental change.
In honor of this year’s Earth Day theme, “Protect Our Species,” EJN is launching our pangolin project, a special reporting initiative that looks at the growing illegal trade of this endangered mammal.
Climate change is not just an environmental issue, but also an economic and social justice one, making it fertile ground in which investigative journalism can flourish.
