Canada’s National Observer is thrilled to announce that Natasha Bulowski, one of our Ottawa-based climate reporters, has been chosen as a 2023 laureate for the EU-Canada Young Journalist Fellowship.

The fellowship is sponsored by the delegation of the European Union to Canada and the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ).

Natasha was chosen on the strength of her story, “Leaked letter puts focus on Canada’s forestry trade priorities ahead of COP15,” which judges felt displayed “journalistic talent and understanding of key EU-Canada policy areas.”

“The piece is an example of journalistic rigour and objectivity in dealing with an important subject, and tackles points of commonality or divergence as Canada and the EU prepared for the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in Montreal,” the press release about the winners stated.

Natasha will join two other winners, Violette Cantin of Montreal and Lex Harvey of Toronto, on a week-long study tour of EU institutions in Brussels in October. She plans to learn more about and report on climate advances in the EU.

All study tour expenses are paid for by the EU delegation to Canada. Winners also benefit from a one-year CAJ membership or one-year membership renewal.
