This workshop - led by Wim Zwijnenburg, an expert on the subject, and his colleague at Bellingcat Nick Waters - will teach journalists and attendees alike how to use readily available open data sources to investigate or locate environmental disasters. The skills taught in the workshop will allow reporters to launch full investigations, and perhaps even predict areas of future crises or conflict using just the internet, satellite imagery and available reports. These tools are an essential part of journalism's contribution to combating climate change.
