Bertha Foundation supports activists, storytellers and lawyers working to bring about social and economic justice and human rights for all.
Bertha Foundation is excited to announce the launch of the second Bertha Challenge: an opportunity for activists and investigative journalists to spend a year deep-diving into one pressing social justice challenge.
Successful applicants will receive non-residential paid fellowships and project budgets to work independently and together to:
INVESTIGATE the causes of and solutions to the annual Bertha Challenge
AMPLIFY their findings to a wider targeted audience
CONNECT with diverse stakeholders for information, support and sustainable impact
The second Bertha Challenge will begin in July 2020 with a focus on our global climate and ecological crises, specifically supporting Bertha Fellows to answer the following question:
How is the relationship between profit and politics contributing to our interconnected climate and ecological crises and what can activists and investigative journalists do to address this?
Applications opened on December 10, 2019 – International Human Rights Day – and close on February 10, 2020. Anyone meeting the selection criteria may apply.
