Climate change is making headlines around the world as the global climate community prepares to gather in Glasgow for the United Nations' 26th Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). SEJ and the UN Foundation are bringing together UN policy experts and journalists to discuss what to watch for as the international community seeks to measure and accelerate progress towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. Featuring a how-to guide on covering COP26 and discussion of the key policies and actions, this webinar is a primer for this complex — but critically important — moment for climate change, and for climate coverage.

This webinar is the fourth in a series providing journalists with background, tools and tips on covering the latest in climate change science and its connections to other global priorities. Join us on October 27th from 1-2PM ET for a discussion of what to look for when covering the COP.
