Climate Change Training Course for Journalists in Berlin in Anticipation of COP21 Paris 2015 Media Coverage

Climate Change Training Course for Journalists in Berlin in Anticipation of COP21 Paris 2015 Media Coverage

Timeloc
11 May 2015 to 20 May 2015
Berlin
Germany
The media plays a crucial role at the nexus of climate talks such as COP21, the underlying science, and public perception by providing a foundation for informed civil discourse.

Policy makers and environmental groups worldwide are scrambling to prepare for the adoption of a new international climate agreement at the Paris 2015 climate summit in December. However, the very specific language of the UN negotiations and the technical complexity of climate science are not readily understood by the average citizen. The nine-day training course, organized by Ecologic Institute, will include instructive training workshops on a diverse array of topics such as: "The Science of Climate Change" and "UNFCCC: How does a COP work?" All courses are designed to meet the professional needs of journalists and led by a team of experts in climate science and policy, with explicit opportunities (and time in the schedule) to report home from Berlin.

The project aims at improving climate change relevant media coverage in the lead up to Paris 2015 and will be organized around the high-level international meeting "Petersberg Climate Dialogue" in Berlin, offering participants the opportunity to attend the event as accredited press as well as the chance to meet and interview climate experts and Ministers during the Dialogue proceedings (Berlin 17/18th May).

The project is funded by the Federal Foreign Office.
