Climate Change – Not just another News Story EVENT RECAP

Read on to see the recording of our event where we discussed the role of broadcast media in the fight against climate change.

A run of exceptional weather events and the latest stark warnings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report has seen Climate Change back to making headlines. But climate change isn’t just the story – frequently it’s the setting.

Whether reporting the potential impact of climate change on trade deals, the post-pandemic recovery of the travel industry or the role climate change may play in future conflicts, there is scope for a climate angle, so what are the challenges to delivering this kind of climate reporting? And where are the stories that we are missing altogether?

With COP26 just a couple of months away, our panel discussed these issues and answered questions from attendees
