Your Opportunity to go Beyond the Scenes of the Global Energiewende – the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue Media Fellowship 2024

On 19 – 20 March 2024, the German Government invites the world to its 10th inspiring dialogue on the Global Energiewende, the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue 2024 (#betd24), which has become the leading international forum on the green energy transformation. Every year, high-level participants from politics, industry, science and civil society gather in Berlin for two days to discuss the shift to a sustainable energy system.

For several years, the Federal Foreign Office, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE e.V.) invite international journalists to report on the BETD. This BETD Media Fellowship allows young journalists from around the world to come together in the German capital in order to participate in this exclusive conference, talk to high-ranking stakeholders from science, politics, industry and civil society as well as to connect with other BETD Media Fellows from all over the world and strengthen international energy journalism that does not stop at national borders.

We invite you to become part of the BETD.24 and to report on the discussions and proposed innovative energy solutions. We offer you the unique opportunity to join us in Berlin and look behind the scenes of the Global Energiewende. Following parts are included in the fellowship program:

  • travel & accommodation paid trip to Berlin for the BETD and Berlin Energy Week
  • virtual meeting upfront with professional input
  • active participation in the BETD.24
  • press opportunities with high-level speakers, state representatives & other VIPs
  • additional opportunity to participate in BETD side events such as guided tours, receptions, business-to-government formats & workshops
  • in-depth insight behind the scenes of the global energy transition
  • community building with former BETD media fellows
  • visibility & outreach via our platform for all the media fellows articles about BETD.24

Your work and contribution to the BETD 2024 are of high value, as reporting on the international energy transition and raising awareness of the opportunities of renewable energy and energy efficiency are crucial to meet the Paris Climate Agreement’s targets.
