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.
