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 newsroom 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. The application deadline to join our first intake has passed. | Learn more

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.
