Thinking Globally, Reporting Locally: A Conversation on How to Cover the COP26 Glasgow Climate Change Talks from Canada offers a conversation with some of the country’s top news media, environmentalist, Indigenous and scientific leaders.
Together, they will explore that question, helping develop fresh new angles for reporting on both the Glasgow climate talks and global warming.
Thinking Globally, Reporting Locally is open to journalists and members of the public interested in the news media’s coverage of climate change.
This event is co-organized by Sean Holman, the Crookes Professor in Environmental & Climate Journalism with UVic’s Department of Writing, and the Canadian Association of Journalists.
Thursday, October 28 | 4:30pm (Pacific) / 7:30pm (Eastern)
