Climate Change, Environment Covid-19 Crisis Reporting

In a world of information overload we work with journalists, news organisations and partners to make sure environment and health issues remain at the top of the news agenda.

Overview

The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus sweeping the globe is threatening millions of lives, pressuring health care systems and disrupting economies. Equally relentless is the proliferation of misinformation and a lack of understanding about the potential consequences and impacts of COVID-19, leading to widespread confusion, fear and complicating efforts by governments and organisations to find solutions to the crisis.

The need for factual, reliable and trusted news and information to confront this dearth and ‘infodemic’ has never been greater. However, journalists from different professional backgrounds are locked in an emergency news cycle, struggling to navigate the complexity of this fast-changing story in order to succeed in their mission to inform the public.
