    adress 1

    30 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf London, E14 5EP, United Kingdom Telephone: +44(0)20 7542 9633

    Deadline: 20 March 2017

    The Thomson Reuters Foundation is currently seeking applications from the journalists for its new programme- Reporting after the Epidemic.

    The programme aims to work with independent journalists to explore the Ebola outbreak issue in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone in 2014 and 2015.

    The programme will feature an intensive workshop in Freetown, Sierra Leone bringing together journalists from all three countries. This will take place in June 2017 (dates TBC). It will develop investigative and storytelling skills provide practical approaches to exploring the above questions, and help participants to develop hard-hitting story ideas.

    Reporters will then receive ongoing support from project editors to help them produce original stories and investigations. Modest funding will be available to help with the costs of investigation.

    Objectives

    The programme aims to support journalists to find answers to the following questions:

    What happened to the money? Not all of the funds pledged were actually delivered, and for those that were there is little transparency. But the amounts pledged were huge – $5.8 billion is almost equal to the combined GDP of Liberia and Sierra Leone. Did the funding reach the communities that it was supposed to? And has it made a difference?
    What happened to essential services? The epidemic killed many medical staff and the effects of this will be felt across all areas of healthcare, long after the epidemic is over. How are these health systems coping today? What about other services like education?
    Could another outbreak take hold? There have been seven “flare-ups” of the epidemic since the initial control of the outbreak, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. None resulted in more than 13 cases. But how close are these countries to another serious outbreak – and what could cause it?

    Benefits

    Foundation covers all transport and subsistence costs of journalists participating in this programme.

    Eligibility Criteria

    Journalists working for domestic media in Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone are eligible
    Journalists working in any medium may apply – print, radio, TV, online
    Applications are encouraged from investigative journalists and those interested in following the money. However this is not essential – other reporters with an interest in this issue are also welcomed.
    Applications are encouraged from journalists who covered the Ebola epidemic. Again, this is not essential.
    Journalists must be fluent in English
    Journalists must have a minimum of one year’s experience. They should either be working full-time for a media organisation, or a freelancer whose main work is journalism
    Prior reporting on Ebola and/or finance is not a requirement for the course.

    How to Apply

    To apply applicants are required to upload the following documents:

    2 relevant work samples (maximum file size 5 MB) – in English if possible. For stories not in English, please include a 250-word English summary about the story.
    A letter from your editor consenting to your participation in the programme and committing to publish/broadcast resulting stories
    All required documents are required to be submitted online via given website.

    For more information, please visit Reporting after the Epidemic.

    Smart Cities and Climate Change Competition

    The ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) is looking for innovative ideas on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can help smart cities to slow down or mitigate the effects of climate change. This might include novel technologies or combinations of existing technologies, services, and systems which would shape a smart city. It may focus on monitoring of or reporting on climate change, mitigating or adapting the impact of climate change on society, or on changes in technology and society that lead to a greener community.

    The ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) is looking for innovative ideas on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can help smart cities to slow down or mitigate the effects of climate change. This might include novel technologies or combinations of existing technologies, services, and systems which would shape a smart city. It may focus on monitoring of or reporting on climate change, mitigating or adapting the impact of climate change on society, or on changes in technology and society that lead to a greener community.

    Smart cities are one of the cornerstones of urban planning and technology today. A city is considered to be “smart” when investment in human and social capital in the form of education and civil society, transportation and communications infrastructure, wise management of natural resources and participatory governance, fuel sustainable economic growth and high quality of life.

    Through a focus on reducing emissions, improving environmental sustainability, and innovations in green technologies, smart cities can lead the way in reducing human impact on climate change. Improvements in public services and the availability and use of ICTs make it possible for smart cities to reduce the negative effects on citizens’ health and wellbeing created by air pollution and global warming such as extreme weather events, spread of epidemic and endemic diseases and food insecurity. Those already living in especially vulnerable areas, such as small islands states, developing communities or the areas around large cities, are especially well-placed to gain from the benefits of smart cities.

    Socially conscious innovators and entrepreneurs have a crucial role to play in these changes. By working with transportation and public spaces, health infrastructure and public health efforts, education, civic engagement, ICTs and green technologies, entrepreneurs can help to create innovative solutions that better educate, empower and connect citizens to transform their cities. Some of these innovations take the form of physical devices, such as smart grids and infrastructure; some are software, such as big data analytics, or services and processes, such as education or community building programmes. These innovations form the core of many aspects of smart cities.

    For this challenge, ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition calls on young people around the world to work together on concepts for new and innovative social startups using the various elements of smart cities to help the communities of the future to adapt to, or reduce the severity of, climate change. The best initial ideas will be presented at the WHO Conference on Health and Climate Change on August 27 – 29.  At the end of the competition, two winners will join ITU Telecom World 2014 in Doha, Qatar, from December 7-10 to pitch their ideas in front of industry leaders and national governments, participate in workshops, benefit from a year of ongoing mentorship, and win  up to $5 000 in seed funding.
