This website hosts the Earth Journalism Network, which aims to help journalists from developing countries to report on environmental issues more effectively. The network was developed by the Internews Network and Internews Europe and it organises the Earth Journalism Awards programme.
It also establishes links among environmental journalists, offering capacity building through workshops, training materials, support for production and distribution, and small grants. The website provides information about the Network's activities and partners, fellowship programmes, and useful tools and resources. These include a toolkit and online courses with tips on how to report on popular environmental issues, and studies of environmental journalism.
The Geo-Wiki Project aims to improve the quality of global land cover maps to determine, for example, the potential of additional agricultural land available to grow crops in Africa. A network of global volunteers reviews the accuracy of land-use maps based on their local knowledge and what they see on Google Earth. The results are recorded in a database used to create more accurate global land cover maps.
The website contains instructions on how to use the geo-wiki and provides access to the validation data. It includes information about branches that tackle different themes and lists related projects and data sources.
