What are the necessary qualifications to become a featured Expert or Organization?

Organizations must be established non-profit groups engaged in environmental education, advocacy and/or research.
How do I apply?
Please click here to tell us more about your area(s) of expertise and related credentials. Based on that information, and any other materials we may request, we will determine whether you are qualified to become a featured Planet Expert or Organization.
In some cases, individuals who do not possess the necessary qualifications will be invited to publish content as a Contributor. (See below.)
What happens after my Planet Experts application is accepted?
You will receive an email indicating that you have been accepted as an Expert. We will ask you to provide a photo or logo, short bio and links to any websites and social media channels you wish to share so that we can create your account and establish your profile page.
Once your profile is published, you’ll receive a welcome email with a set of writing guidelines.
If I am not accepted as an Expert, may I appeal the decision?
Yes, anyone is free to re-state a case for qualification. If your appeal is denied, you are free to re-apply again every six months.
What if I don’t qualify as an Expert, but would like to write for Planet Experts?
Planet Experts welcomes feature content from Contributors who are qualified journalists and bloggers.
What does Planet Experts expect of its featured Experts and Organizations?
Neither our Experts nor our Organizations are bound by any contractual obligation to Planet Experts, though we do encourage a goal of at least one publication (typically 300 to 1200 words) per month.
Publications are thereafter posted on at least one of our social channels (Facebook, Twitter and Google+); we therefore recommend that our Experts and Organizations engage in our social media outreach, and promote Planet Experts to their colleagues, families and friends.
