This is one of the Earth Journalism Toolkit’s selected resources for journalists. Read on for a full description.
Section One of this UNESCO document has five topic chapters (climate change; resource depletion – forests and fisheries; resource depletion – water; biodiversity and extinction; and pollution), which summarise the problems and ways for journalists to report on them. Each section suggests resources and includes notes for trainers, including group and individual exercises and some very brief lecture notes.
Section Two focuses on reporting skills, with sections on ‘discussing sustainability’; ‘asking the right questions’; ‘delivering warnings’; and ‘selling the story’. Each of these also has material for trainers. Section Three gives examples of positive things people are doing to address the environmental challenges described. The document has a short glossary and list of acronyms and further reading.
