More event information:
Climate change isn’t just a challenge for science and policy — it’s also a challenge for journalists and other writers. The way that we understand climate change has been strongly shaped by journalists; and the way we imagine the future of climate change is also being shaped by the stories we tell about it.
• How well has our media covered climate change?
• How has media coverage influenced social and political response — and how have society and politics influence the media?
• Perhaps above all, how can the stories we tell about climate change help us confront and manage the complexities of this phenomena on a planet increasingly influenced by human activity? Join us, as we address all this and more!
