Flaws and Fixes: When Climate News Reporting Investigates the Whole Story
Join us for the G&S Sense & Sustainability® Salon, a lively breakfast roundtable with veteran journalists who are boldly pioneering a new style of climate news reporting: Solutions Journalism. Through rigorous investigation, solutions journalists strive to report the whole story—flaws and fixes—to show how communities, private citizens, businesses and other groups are responding to climate and sustainability issues by addressing practical answers for households, workplaces and communities.
Speakers: Liza Gross, Vice President, Newsroom Practice Change, Solutions Journalism Network, Fara Warner, Lead Instructor, Poynter College Media Project and Ron Loch, Managing Director and Sustainability Lead, G&S Business Communications
You will learn:
- Principles of solutions journalism, key techniques taught in newsrooms in the U.S. and internationally, and examples of applications to climate news reporting.
- Opportunities for journalists to work with communicators as reliable sources for solutions-oriented news.
- Highlights of findings from the 2019 G&S Sense & Sustainability Study, which this year also focused on U.S. consumers’ views about the home and building industry’s efforts to communicate its sustainable practices, products and technologies.
This is an invitation-only event for in-house corporate communicators and sustainability experts (no PR agencies or sales representatives, please). Request your invitation here.
This event is part of the Clean Transport, Buildings and Infrastructure program of Climate Week NYC.
