Training Workshops: Building Journalist Skills for Future Health Crises

Training Workshops: Building Journalist Skills for Future Health Crises
Online
4 – 27 August 2020

It is not easy to report on the climate crisis, environmental, and sustainability-related issues because specific science-writing skills and knowledge are required. That is why this programme is organised – to equip journalists with the ability to do so confidently as they perform their roles in making climate challenges and solutions relevant to everyday audiences. Through this programme, nominated journalists will learn to recognise and analyse the central challenges in covering the climate crisis, identify a personal toolkit of skills and knowledge they can use to approach and cover related topics in the future, and develop their personal reporting projects.

This programme consists of six live and online modules held weekly over six weeks, and is made possible by the Temasek Foundation in Singapore.
