The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is delighted to announce the Oxford Climate Journalism Network (OCJN) has been awarded funding by Laudes Foundation to continue its vital work into its second year of operations.

The £435,000 grant by Laudes Foundation will enable the OCJN to sustain its operations until the end of 2023 on all four pillars of the network: online six-month courses with practising journalists, short courses with newsroom leaders, original academic research into climate reporting and journalism fellowships for mid-career journalists.

Rasmus Nielsen, Director of the Reuters Institute, said: “Climate change is a defining, existential, and urgent change for all of us, including journalists. We are very grateful to Laudes Foundation for its commitment to support the ongoing work of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network, which is off to such a strong start thanks to the energy, creativity, and commitment of everyone involved in the network and the team here at the institute. This grant enables us to build on an outstanding first year.”
