Environmental journalism and running a climate-focused media outlet

Award & Trainings/ MIRH/ 01 June 2022



Our planet faces a series of intensifying emergencies today. Rising temperatures are causing more frequent and intense climate disasters. Habitat loss and other pressures threaten to push an estimated 1 million species into extinction. Pollution continues to poison the air we breathe, the land we inhabit, and the water we drink.

World Environment Day, which this year falls on June 5, seeks to promote awareness and action to protect our environment. Held annually by the United Nations since 1974, World Environment Day has grown to become a truly global platform bringing attention to the issues facing the climate.

At the ICFJ Pamela Howard Global Crisis Reporting Forum, we will commemorate World Environment Day with a webinar to discuss environment journalism and what it takes to run a climate-focused media outlet.

Our guest is Sebastián Rodriguez, the editor-in-chief of Climate Tracker, an international non-profit organization that supports and trains environmental reporters globally. A climate and environment journalist, Rodriguez has published his reporting in Reuters, DW, Mongabay and China Dialogue. He spoke with IJNet in the fall about ​​how he approaches the climate beat, and why the increasingly dire global climate crisis requires that journalists collaborate to cover it effectively.

Make it a date with us.
