We are training selected participants in journalism and storytelling with a purpose sharing the stories of rural women in Central and Eastern Europe who are facing the effects of climate change today.

About the Event

Debates and decision-making around the climate crisis too often revolve around the voices and experiences of a limited few, depriving us of crucial perspectives in national and European conversations. Moreover, we know that the effects of the climate crisis have a disproportionate impact on specific demographics, such as women and  rural communities.  

This training will provide selected young Green feminists with skills and knowledge on fair and ethical reporting, writing, and research; as well as fostering creativity, empathising and recognising the intersections of gender and climate. Aimed at participants in Central and Eastern Europe, the training will also tackle press freedom more broadly, exploring some hot topics and discussing what the EU can, does, and should do to in this domain.  

Participants will use the skills and knowledge they have acquired to go back to their home countries and crease inspiring, professional content which will reflect stories of those who are often forgotten about in discussions of climate change. 


This training is part of Feminists in the Environmental Movement, a GEF transnational project that seeks to stimulate conversations around (the intersections of) gender and environmental justice across Europe. The project is implemented with the support of Visio (Finland), Green Economics Institute (UK), Oikos (Belgium), Strefa Zieleni (Poland), Green Thought Association (Turkey), and CDNEE.
