“Climate change is the biggest and longest-lasting story our generation will ever work on”
– Wolfgang Blau, Co-Founder Oxford Climate Journalism Network

The Global eSummit, spread over five online sessions across two days, will look at particular challenges

  1. Storytelling – innovation and formats:  a focus on newsrooms successfully making sense of climate change for their audiences – across all beats and despite resource challenges. Podcasts, AR, Explainers and Interactives.
  2. The viability of climate change coverage: amid scarce resources, how are newsrooms making the case for growing their climate coverage? Can it be monetised?
  3. Extreme collaboration:  one way to improve your climate coverage and the authority of your journalism is through partnerships. Ideas on how to do it.
  4. Shifting from doom and gloom to hope: how to approach a story to keep audiences interested and invested.
  5. Training and resources: climate touches all beats, all journalists, all editors. Where and how can you access training for all your staff.
  6. Keeping climate coverage alive, engaging and on the front page: the gaps we need to overcome to produce content that resonates with audiences.
