The COP26 summit yielded some progress on emissions cuts but fell short on coal - the dirtiest fossil fuel. Global governments and corporate leaders are to double down on their commitments to curb greenhouse gas emissions and phase out gasoline-powered automobiles, but the lack of deadlines or enforcement mechanisms associated with these commitments means that journalists, advocacy groups, and citizens must hold these leaders accountable. When the climate crisis touches every community around the globe, and every story is in some sense a climate story, how do news outlets keep climate coverage engaging long after the hundreds of journalists left Glasgow?
Thomson Foundation, along with a few of our partners and collaborators, will explore ways to reflect both the local and global aspects of the climate story, and the opportunities to connect news outlets and audiences around the world to explore shared problems and their solutions.
