Solutions for Survival



Youth journalists uncover innovative solutions to climate change being implemented by communities around the globe, and debunk the myth that we must still invest in dirty energy.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In order to solve the climate crisis, we must open up the political dialogue tremendously. Young people have a marked interest in leaving behind the current debate, and instead focusing on how people are coping and inventing around the world. Stories of Survival builds Fired Up Media's network of youth reporters on 6 continents to produce blogs, photo essays, and mini-documentaries of varying length that uncover what people are already doing to solve climate change.

How will this project solve this problem?

We train youth journalists in disenfranchised regions to build strong visual and written pieces on solutions to climate change. We build the skills of young reporters world wide to push climate solutions to the forefront of the political debate.

Potential Long Term Impact

Solutions for Survival will empower 100 youth journalists and those journalists will educate hundreds more. Our work will highlight the cutting edge solutions on climate change, help pass stronger legislation and support local solutions.
