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 and editors develop their coverage of climate change, and support leaders in identifying the issues involved in reporting on the climate crisis.
The network is free to join and is open to working journalists, employed or freelance, covering any beat, not just environment and climate. | Learn more
