Storylines for 2022: Where Does Climate Journalism Hit the Wall? is the theme of a webinar coming up Wednesday, March 24, hosted by Energy Mix Productions.
“Climate journalism plays an essential role in getting the climate emergency under control,” the event page states. “But it often hits a wall—when a news outlet can’t follow a story to its conclusion, or when focused knowledge in areas like climate finance, municipal climate action, or a decarbonized power grid doesn’t reach the audiences that can put it to use.”
So we’ve brought together an expert panel of three journalists and three practitioners to talk about how climate journalism tells the stories that help drive faster, deeper carbon cuts, and puts that information in the hands of the audiences that can make a difference.
Join us for a fast-paced hour featuring:
• Anna Hiatt, Executive Editor, Covering Climate Now;
• Megan Darby, Editor, Climate Home News;
• Alex Kirby, Co-Founder, Climate News Network;
• Greg Overmonds, Director, Marketing & Communications, Vancity Community Investment Bank;
• Binnu Jeyakumar, Director, Clean Energy, Pembina Institute;
• Steve Winkelman, Executive Director, Ottawa Climate Action Fund.
