Applications open for the 1 Million Women Tara Fellowship

The 1 Million Women Tara Hunt Fellowship will offer a young woman the opportunity to undertake communications training to expand her skills and knowledge and bring those learnings back to 1 Million Women. The Fellowship is a four-week journey (broken up over six months) with the 1 Million Women team to learn how to effectively communicate the challenges of climate change and encourage solutions.

What does the Fellowship involve?

You will attend the International Youth Media Summit (IYMS) based in Sydney, from 21 July – 9 August. IYMS is an annual two-week event that brings together young people from around the world to create media projects aimed at inspiring their own generation to take action and responsibility for the future. During the summit, delegates will create a short film about a social/environmental issue while being guided by media educators and professional filmmakers. As a Fellowship recipient, you will explore the power and impact of media to transform attitudes.

Following the summit, you will spend two weeks with the team at 1 Million Women, undertaking training and delivering a project of your own with guidance from an expert social media team. You will learn how to utilise social media channels for communicating and mobilising climate action.

At the end of the year (dates TBA) 1 Million Women will hold a youth summit, where you will have an opportunity to present your project and what you have learned.

All Fellowship costs are covered. Accommodation will be provided during your stay in Sydney, plus daily living expenses and all your travel costs to and from Sydney and during your stay.
