We’ll quickly review the basics of climate change and then do deep dives with top experts on climate and water issues and clean energy solutions. Journalists successfully tackling the challenge of local climate reporting will discuss their experiences. New localized climate reporting resources will be introduced and discussed and we will use them in hands-on practice.
