The Zimbabwe Environmental Journalists Association aims to unite journalists writing about environmental and development issues, giving them a chance to share experiences, problems and solutions.
We work with media organisations, environmental and climate stakeholders to promote positive and adaptive practices for the benefit of the environment and planet.
We decided to join together to raise awareness of the dangers facing our fragile environment … and the Zimbabwe Environmental Journalists Association was born
And we serve communities, delivering impartial information that helps avoid unnecessary land abuse and encourages better use of precious resources.
Our vision is to become a world-class environmental and climate change watchdog, training and advocacy institution.
We welcome support and sponsorship from governments, NGOs and commerical organisations and encourage journalists with a passion for the environment to join us.
ZEJA was formed in late 2010 when a group of journalists came together in Harare for a workshop called Climate Changed Uncovered, organised by the British Council in conjunction with UNESCO and the Thomson Foundation. We decided to join together to raise awareness of the dangers facing our fragile environment, and the Zimbabwe Environmental Journalists Association was born.
