The Frontline

The Third Generation Project’s blog, The Frontline, is a space for people and communities on the frontlines of climate injustice to tell their own stories.

People are dealing with the inequities and violence created or worsened by global systems of environmental, economic, racial, and cultural oppression and injustice every day. We began ‘The Frontline’ as a means of spotlighting individuals and communities who can speak about what they’re experiencing, how they are fighting back, and how the rest of us can support them.

Please see details below if you wish your story to be published on the Frontline.

I was an expert witness speaking about Indigenous medicines and the harmful effects of extractive industries in regard to sex trafficking and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) .

Featuring on the Frontline

Starting 2022, we are able to offer a small stipend to interviewees and contributors to the Frontline. However, we cannot accept regular contributions from the same contributors.

How does it work?

We aim to publish quarterly, during the first two weeks of March, June, September, and December.

We have two formats of post: contributors can write a contribution independently (an article, or poem etc.) or they can choose to be interviewed by a member of the TGP team.  We ask contributors to provide a headshot and at least one accompanying photo for the piece. The contributor must have copyright ownership of these images and consent from anyone depicted in them that their photo be published in this way.

Submission deadlines for independently written contributions are 3 weeks prior to publishing. If you choose to be interviewed, the interview will be conducted ca. 2 months before the publishing date. All posts are reviewed by members of the TGP team as well as contributors. The final version of each post including photographs is published once approved by the contributor. Payment will occur upon publishing. Posts should be between 800-1,000 words in length.

Please contact Communications Coordinator Annabelle von Moltke at if you wish to contribute to the Frontline.
