Media and Climate: a crisis in coverage?

September 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm MDT

$5 – $10

During Global Climate Week, the Calgary Climate Hub is excited to host a provocative evening with Sean Holman, author of: Dear Journalists of Canada: Start Reporting Climate Change as an Emergency , to be followed by a panel discussion with some of Calgary’s most distinguished journalists.

The climate crisis is the biggest story of our age. But not enough journalists are treating it that way. And that’s hindering public and private attempts to prevent catastrophic global heating. Sean, and our panel will discuss what responsible coverage of this story should look like and the important role journalists can play during this disaster.

Panel discussion to follow with moderator: Brooks Decillia (University of Calgary) and distiguished journalists Jason Markusoff (Maclean’s), Sean Holman, and Gillian Steward (Star/Metro).

Tickets are $10.00, and $5.00 for students/low income. If you would like to attend, and the ticket price is a barrier to you, please contact admin@calgaryclimatehub.ca for more information.
