Your Opportunity to go Beyond the Scenes of the Global Energiewende – the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue Media Fellowship 2022

On 29 – 30 March 2022, the German Government invites the world to its annual inspiring dialogue on the Global Energiewende, the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue  (#betd22), 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. In this diverse international conference, scientific expertise is paired with practical know-how, policymakers engage with civic groups, and young and experienced generations enrich each other by working hand in hand to accelerate the energy transition.

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 gather in the German capital in order to gain access to this exclusive conference, talk to high-level stakeholders from science, politics, industry and civil society as well as connect with other BETD Media Fellows.

In 2021 the BETD took place virtually due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s dialogue is planned to be held as a hybrid conference with limited access.

Your work and contribution to the BETD 2022 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.

We invite you to become part of the BETD 2022 and the BETD Digital Media Conference and to report on the discussions and proposed innovative energy solutions. We offer you the unique opportunity to join us in Berlin either virtually or in person and look behind the scenes of the Global Energiewende.
