The Oxford Climate Journalism Network (OCJN) works with a global community of reporters and editors across platforms and beats to improve the quality, understanding and impact of climate coverage around the world. The OCJN is a programme at the Reuters Institute. Its mission is to help journalists, editors, and media executives across the world develop their coverage of climate change.
Our programme also supports newsroom leaders in identifying and addressing the range of operational, cultural and ethical issues that encompass climate stories and can help expand the coverage of this issue. Applications to join the network from January to June 2023 have now closed. We'll open applications for the next cohort in the spring. | Learn more
