Extreme weather patterns around the world have brought new urgency to the need to connect audiences to the climate story. In short: our climate is at a breaking point. In a time of news avoidance, how can newsrooms create compelling climate journalism that both connects with audiences and communicates the sobering reality of the situation? Climate solutions journalism has been one tactic, but is it working?

The webcast takes place November 8, 2023 @ 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET: 45 minutes of moderated conversation, followed by 15 minutes of audience Q&A. It will be live streamed here.

Speakers include journalist Steph Wood, a member of The Narwhal  team, which received the 2023 CJF Award for Climate Solutions Reporting; Dr. Anabela Bonada, of the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation; Mark Hertsgaard, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Covering Climate Now and  Diego Arguedas Ortiz, Network Manager of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism.
