Climate Change is the biggest story you’ll ever cover. But how well equipped do you feel to report it? How easy is it to find new stories and make them relevant to your audience?
In just a few weeks, the world’s media will be tested as it focuses on COP 26. This is the UN Climate Change conference being held in the UK and described as the world’s ‘last best chance’ to save the planet.

CIRCOM is running a free session on finding and telling climate change stories. Hosted by working journalists from the Solutions Journalism Network, this online workshop focuses not only on the problems of climate change, but on how people respond to those problems. Solutions stories outperform problem-focused news. And research shows audiences find them more interesting, trustworthy and uplifting.
If you’re a journalist, editor or producer working at a news or current affairs outlet and need a fresh way of looking at climate change stories, sign up for this free, 1.5hr online workshop. You can discuss your own stories too so bring ideas you’re working on. The session takes place via Zoom on:
