Fully Funded Global Climate Reporting Program in San Francisco aims to increase coverage of the potential impacts of extreme weather and climate-related effects on society by improving journalists’ knowledge and capacity. Participants will learn from global experts about how extreme weather and climate affect human health and safety and natural ecosystems and produce stories on these critical topics. Moreover, they will have access to the full conference as well as breakout sessions with experts and a workshop with experienced climate journalists.
Journalists will participate in the Summit and cover stories around climate and sustainability issues. Ahead of the program, ICFJ will organize a virtual orientation to prepare participants to cover the conference and to help develop their story ideas. Participants will also learn data and storytelling strategies to improve their coverage of critical climate-related issues and their effects on communities.
