Hello all,
Hope your weekend is going well!
It’s time to share a big project we have been working on. At the beginning of this year we received a grant from Earth Journalism Network to start our journalism project ‘Bangladesh and Climate Change’.
We created a unique programme to train local journalists and co-produce articles and videos about water and climate change challenges in Bangladesh. The stories show how climate change impacts the lives and livelihoods of the country’s citizens. Now we are glad to invite you to our virtual final event, where we discuss the topic and screen a video: ‘Water Stories from Bangladesh’.
Working with a strong team of local journalists and development workers we have produced 18 stories, seven short videos and one long-duration video about water and climate change in Bangladesh.
📢 JOIN OUR LIVE PRESENTATION
Our team and all our participants would like to invite you to join our final virtual event on Friday 24 September at 11 am CEST / 3 pm Bangladesh. Learn more and register for free here: https://next.blue/bangladesh.

We are pleased to bring together these environmental journalists from across the regions and experts on environment and climate change from Bangladesh. They help us to spark debate and they capture our changing planet.
Let’s take a look at some of their photographs below.
