The European Forest Institute and the Global Editors Network are launching Lookout360°, a six-month Climate Change Immersive Storytelling Accelerator project that supports journalists to produce immersive videos on climate change and people’s lives.

A total of 10 applicants will be selected to attend a bootcamp on climate change storytelling as well as video filming and post-production in Finland. After the bootcamp, participants will receive mentorship to develop a story within a three-month period.

After the in-field bootcamp, the programme will gather scientists and 360-degree video experts to support the participants in developing, iterating and publishing a story within a 3-month period. The final projects will be showcased at the GEN Summit in Lisbon, Portugal on May 30 to June 1, 2018, both on the conference main stage and in the GEN Dome, an immersive storytelling-focused exhibition.

Application closes on December 18, 2017.
