THE PULITZER Center on Crisis Reporting is accepting applications for Hostile Environment/First Aid Training (HEAFAT) course as part of the Rainforest Journalism Fund (RJF). Independent/freelance or staff journalists of any nationality are eligible to apply until February 10, 2020.
HEAFAT course will cover topics tackling the challenges of environmental reporting in the Southeast Asia. It will run from April 20-24, 2020 in Bogor, Indonesia.
There are as many as 15 slots open for journalists of any nationality that are working in the Southeast Asia region. The Pulitzer Center, however, highlights their preference for journalists reporting on the environment in the following countries: Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam. The grant will shoulder the transportation, lodging, meals and course costs. Selected participants will be announced on February 29, 2020.
This initiative is funded by the RJF, which is an investment for capacity-building and support for journalists and reporters in international environmental and climate reporting. On the last day of the course, the selected journalists will participate in the first ever convening of the Southeast Asia Rainforest Journalism Fund.
