Event Details

Clearing the Air: What the media gets right – and wrong – when covering environmental issues

From biodiversity loss and climate change (or is it “climate crisis?”) to deforestation and plastic pollution, media coverage is critical to shining a light on our planet’s biggest environmental challenges — but with so many different stakeholders, it’s certainly not free from critique. A panel of professional journalists will discuss what the media gets right — and wrong — when covering contentious environmental topics, as well as new developments that may spell change on the horizon.

-Todd Reubold, Associate Director, Institute on the Environment and Publisher, Ensia
-Additional panelist(s) will be announced soon
