Covering the climate crisis: Journalism’s role in protecting our planet

Media has failed to cover the climate crisis like the emergency it is. Join us for an international panel discussion on journalism and the climate crisis, held with the People’s Summit for COP26.

The event is on Monday, Nov. 8 at 16:30 UK time. Register here for the event:

This is the first event organized by the IFJ’s new climate action team, and we will have Sean Holman (Canada), an investigative reporter and climate expert, moderating. Our esteemed panellists include Jhesset Thrina Enano (Philippines), a journalist from Manila, who focuses on the climate crisis, wildlife and biodiversity, natural hazards, and other environmental issues. Jean-Pierre Ilboudo (Republic of Congo) a former journalist who helped design the IFJ’s climate journalism training workshops used across Africa. He is from Burkina Faso and is currently at the UNESCO Office in Congo Brazzaville. Katia Brasil (Brazil), is the founder and executive editor of the independent agency Amazônia Real, based in Manaus, capital of Amazonas, in northern Brazil.

Climate change is the most pressing problem of our time. As journalists, we have a special responsibility to report on the facts and associated impacts of climate change. As trade unionists, we demand a just transition for all workers impacted by the shift to a zero-carbon economy.

No journalism on a dead planet!
