Green Web Fellowship on Uniting Climate Justice and Digital Rights

The Green Web Foundation is calling for the next cohort of fellows who are practitioners in digital rights and climate justice and want to build bridges across these movements to apply for the 2023/24 Web fellowship program.

This fellowship aims to strengthen the connections between the movements for climate justice and digital rights. Perhaps applicants are interested in this intersection and see potential for a project; regardless of whether their professional backgrounds belong to the categories of technologist, researcher, activist, or policymaker, this fellowship is for them!

The results and opportunities that the Green Screen coalition and the landscape research it commissioned regarding this juncture identified serve as the foundation for this fellowship.


Fellows will:

  • dedicate 5 hours a week to their fellowship for 6 months
  • design and deliver a fellowship project that contributes to digital rights and climate justice
  • participate in weekly cohort calls and regular self-directed learning while documenting their experience in the open
  • write monthly blog posts about their experience and learnings during the fellowship

Starting Date: December 1, 2023

Duration: 6 months


Fellows receive:

  • A stipend of €6,000 to compensate for their time
  • A project budget is available upon request for collaborators, materials, travel, and other expenses for the proposed project 
  • Mentorship from experienced practitioners in greening the internet, climate justice, digital rights and facilitative leadership


A successful Green Web fellow:

  • Is an active practitioner in the movements for digital rights and/or climate justice and is eager to explore how these movements can learn from and support one another 
  • Has a clearly articulated project that
  1. serves a community that the fellow is a part of and
  2. bridges the movements for digital rights and climate justice in a practical way.
  • Some areas for projects could be: open data for climate justice; digital security for environmental land rights defenders; digital sustainable infrastructure; fossil-free internet; building open-source technology to tackle the climate crisis; combating climate misinformation and disinformation; or countering digital and environmental extractivism.
  • Takes action towards more just and sustainable futures, holds collaborative space for their communities, and is dedicated to self-reflection in their practice.
  • Is affiliated with an organization or works independently
  • However, they especially encourage people who identify as Most Affected People and Areas (MAPA) to apply, and
  • also encourage projects that are built by affected communities or in close partnership with them.
