More on the climate crisis
Meera Selva and Wolfgang Blau, co-founders of the network, speak about the challenges of reporting on climate change.
This chapter from Simge Andı explore how news audiences get informed about environmental issues.
"Journalists need better local data, access to experts and funding to cover these stories on the ground," writes Meera Selva in this piece.
The Oxford Climate Journalism Network is funded for the first year by a £477,170 grant from the European Climate Foundation (ECF), an independent philanthropic initiative dedicated to responding to the global climate crisis by creating a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions society.
