Reuters Institute launches Oxford Climate Journalism Network
The following excerpt announcement was sent out by Reuters:
The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is launching the Oxford Climate Journalism Network, a project designed to help journalists and newsroom leaders transform the way they cover the climate crisis.
The Oxford Climate Journalism Network is a unique new opportunity for participating journalists and their organizations to strengthen their competences to cover climate change, not as an isolated topic, but as something that intersects with many other aspects of our lives and societies. By providing its members with unique access to world-leading experts, professional forums for exchanging ideas with peers, and by connecting members with relevant scientists and research, the network will help reporters and editors think through the professional, organizational, and ethical questions journalism faces when it comes to climate coverage.
The project is led by two co-founders, the Reuters Institute’s Deputy Director Meera Selva and Visiting Fellow and Advisory Board Member Wolfgang Blau, and is funded for the first year by a £477,170 grant from the European Climate Foundation (ECF).
Membership applications to the first online course of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network are open to working journalists, employed or freelance.
