GLOBAL EYE – Covering climate change in 2021 and beyond (ICFJ)

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is connecting journalists with health experts and newsroom leaders through a webinar series on COVID-19. The series is part of our ICFJ Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum — a project with our International Journalists’ Network (IJNet).

2020 is on track to become the planet’s hottest on record. Experts say the climate crisis could erase the progress made in human health over the past century, and the communities hit hardest by climate change are among the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the same time, momentum for climate action is growing, renewable energy is on the rise and the world’s second-most-polluting country — the United States — has chosen a president-elect determined to rejoin the Paris climate accord.

In an ICFJ Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum webinar, Imelda Abano, president of the Philippine Network of Environmental JournalistsDavid Callaway, founder and editor of Callaway Climate Insights, and Gustavo Faleiros, founder of Brazil-based InfoAmazonia and environmental investigations editor for the Pulitzer Center, sat down with ICFJ Senior Program Director Jennifer Dorroh to discuss top climate stories to cover in 2021.
