Journalism and the Climate Crisis eSummit. Overcoming obstacles: How to keep climate change on the front page and audiences interested in the climate change story
02 March, 2022
In this session which was part of the Journalism and the Climate Crisis eSummit organised by WAN-IFRA | The World Editors Forum, Luba Kassova, Richard Addy from AKAS, Meera Selva from RISJ and Jane Barrett from Thomson Reuters discuss how news organisations could bring the climate change story, currently on the periphery of news, to the front page and how they can engage their news audiences with the story. Luba and Richard present four gaps between what audiences may want from the story and what news coverage provides. They also focus on three key biases that work against us when it comes to tackling the climate crisis.

After coming across The Missing Perspectives of Women in News and in COVID-19 News reports, Phoebe Saintilan decided to launch the Missing Perspectives global platform whose mission is to drive social impact through challenging the underrepresentation of young women in news worldwide. In this podcast Phoebe and Hannah Diviney, Editor-in-Chief of the Missing Perspectives news platform, sat down with Luba Kassova to talk about the landmark reports. From women's underrepresentation as protagonists and experts in the news; their frequently skewed portrayal as disempowered; to women's marginalised voices in stories about violence against them, Luba, Phoebe and Hannah cover numerous aspects of the problem, as well as many solutions available to newsmakers who want to produce more gender equitable news coverage.
