First meeting – June 29th, 2022: 12.30 – 1.30 PM

This is the preliminary website of the new Climate Journalism Network Switzerland. In the coming weeks, we will expand the website and have our content in more languages. For now, we stick to English. We are happy to join our two partner organizations: The Austrian and German “Netzwerke Klimajournalismus”.

Please follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our newsletter.


The first meeting:

We kick off our network with a lunchtime talk on Wednesday, June 29th from 12.30 to 1.30 PM via Zoom. Our guest speaker will be Diego Arguedas Ortiz from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford.

Diego will talk about the state of climate journalism, with a focus on the challenges journalists face – and how they can overcome them. He will also present some findings from Reuters’ latest research into audience attitudes/climate news consumption; there will be time for your questions, too!

Diego has covered climate change since 2013 and founded the first dedicated news outlet in Central America. He now lives in the UK and runs the Oxford Climate Journalism Network, which has 200 members from 60 countries.

To take part in the first meeting, please join our newsletter; we’re going to publish the Zoom link there on the morning of the 29th. Our meetings are for professional journalists (and journalism students) only.

Please spread the word. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
