How can we make sure newsrooms are well-equipped to cover the climate crisis, fight misinformation and guarantee that climate reporting is not an isolated topic? These questions are what the new Oxford Climate Journalism Network will focus on.

Author Name

Launched in October and funded by the European Climate Foundation, the Oxford Climate Journalism Network (OCJN) is a new programme at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford. Its mission is to help journalists, editors, and media executives across the world develop their coverage of climate change, and support newsroom leaders in identifying and addressing the range of operational, cultural and ethical issues that can be involved in expanding their coverage of this issue.

The project is a unique new opportunity for participating journalists and their organisations 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.

The OCJN will provide its members with unique access to world-leading experts, professional forums, relevant scientists and research to guarantee media organisations are well-equipped to cover the issue, clarifying what it means locally as well as globally, and how it is intertwined with other areas from business to politics, so they can help people understand the realities of climate change and how we might respond to them.
