Never before in recorded history did humanity have to respond and adjust to a challenge that is as systemic, global and threatening as climate change.

How are news media responding to this challenge? Are there lessons to be learned from covering the COVID-19 pandemic? What are the main operational and ethical questions that journalism is facing now in trying to cover the climate crisis adequately?

In this lecture, Wolfgang Blau, co-founder of the new Oxford Climate Journalism Network, will give a summary of his year of research into these questions and will present his practical advice to news media.

This event is hybrid, taking place both in person and online.
