August Lunch and Learn: Mixed Messages: Navigating Climate Change Coverage in the Modern Media Landscape
The Alliance Center
Denver, CO
Share this event:


Climate change doesn't receive adequate coverage in the media. A recent study shows that in 2015, major news networks collectively spent even less time covering climate change than they had the previous year - and yet 2015 was the hottest year on record for our planet, with greenhouse gas emissions reaching record levels (with 2016 hot on its heels).

Coverage of climate change highlights the opportunity to provide the skills and resources needed to better navigate the media landscape. Join our Lunch & Learn, and explore how climate change is portrayed in the modern media landscape, while learning to better navigate the message overload in our fast-paced, digital life. We'll learn "Media Literacy 101," using climate change reporting case studies - including wildfires and other natural disasters with ties to climate change - and exploring their coverage in the media. You'll become a more empowered media consumer, and learn to cut through messages laden with bias.
