CLIMATE CHANGE THINK PIECE
We will be publishing a new research report in December, a year after the COP21 global climate change talks in Paris. The aim of the report will be to look at media –particularly television – coverage of climate change and whether it has changed significantly since Paris, given the global consensus that climate change requires urgent action to mitigate its impacts. The report will be written by Professor Joe Smith from the Open University, who has collaborated with us before on our climate change work. It will be presented to a round table of media industry leaders. The speaker at this event will be Christiana Figueres, the former UN climate chief. We are keen to hear from IBT members who have been working on the issue of climate change. If you have had any dealings with the media on this topic and are happy to share your experience please let me know.
