How to fix climate journalism

Essays from our climate network

How do we write about climate change in a way that sidesteps polarisation? How do we connect climate change to our heritage, or explain important context to audiences, or attempt to get information from our own governments? How do we create great climate journalism when resources are strained, and journalists are under mental pressure? 

The following essays set out to address all these questions, and more. Over the summer and into the autumn of 2023, we'll be publishing one essay a week from an alumni of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network (OCJN) around the world on how to make climate journalism better. The OCJN is a program at the Reuters Institute that works with reporters and editors around the globe to improve climate literacy in newsrooms and help build engaging and impactful climate journalism.
