The new report, commissioned by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), is rich with case studies and practical advice on how to improve climate journalism. Alexandra Borchardt is the lead author of the report, with input from Katherine Dunn and Felix M. Simon.
“If you are a newsroom manager or have ever been in a leadership role, you will know that it is not possible to change the culture of a team, of an organisation, or let alone of a country, by saying something once, or by running one investigation, one training scheme, one programme or one thread of content. If climate change journalism is to work, it will need to permeate everything we do. Like any transformation, it is not something you do once and move on, this requires a change in mindset.” – Liz Corbin, EBU Deputy Media Director/Head of News
One case study shows how news agency AFP responded to climate coverage constantly being pushed out of the news agenda, and the newsroom constantly using a siloed approach when dealing with the topic.
