Covering Climate Change

Tuesday, Apr 30, 2019

How does the media cover—or not cover—the biggest story of our time? Last fall, UN climate scientists announced that the world has just 12 years to transform energy, agriculture, + other key industries. We believe the news business must also transform.

Why haven’t (most) news organizations been covering this story as if our lives depended on it? How can they craft stories that resonate with audiences? How do they cover this urgent, far-reaching story at a time when journalism’s business model is so precarious?

The Columbia Journalism Review + The Nation are assembling some of the world’s top journalists, scientists, + climate experts to devise a new playbook for journalism that’s compatible with the 1.5-degree future scientists say must be achieved. Join us for a town hall meeting on the coverage of climate change + the launch of an unprecedented, coordinated effort to change the media conversation.

Date: Tuesday, April 30, 9 AM - 3 PM

Location: Columbia University, School of Journalism, 2950 Broadway
