Oxford Climate Journalism Network


The Oxford Climate Journalism Network (OCJN) is a programme that supports a global community of reporters and editors across beats and platforms to improve the quality, understanding and impact of climate coverage around the world. We are a programme of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford.

Since its launch in January 2022, the network has worked with 400 reporters and editors from over 100 countries, from editors-in-chief and business editors to photojournalists and climate specialists. Any person in the newsroom, from any desk, can join the network. Applications are now closed until September 2024.
