How to report on climate change


28.06.2017 - 11:00 to 12:00


Danish Broadcast Concert Halll

Has global climate change been communicated clear enough in the media? Is the debate fair? Can we avoid the debate being deliberately manipulated by stakeholders with vested interests? Does ignorance and conflicts with political ideals cloud the debate? How can we create a better environment for understanding the state of the art in climate development and improve the debate on how to react to climate changes?

  • Connie Hedegaard, Chairman of the KR Foundation, former Minister for Environment, Climate and Energy in Denmark and EU Commission for Climate Action (2010-14)
  • Dominique Leglu, Science et Avenir and La Recherche.
  • Matt McGrath, Environment Correspondent, BBC 
  • Bob Ward, Director, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, LSE
