As part of the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF)'s Global Media Seminar, Pulitzer Center Ocean Editor Jessica Aldred will moderate a panel on ocean reporting.

The Global Media Seminar is a free online seminar in English October 4-5, preceding the GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference: A New Vision for Earth, which will be held October 11-12.

For the panel "Ocean Reporting in the Era of Climate Emergency," Aldred will speak with Pulitzer Center grantee Benji Jones and 2023 Ocean Reporting Fellow Gideon Sarpong about improving coverage of ocean issues amid climate change and destruction.

The seriousness of the climate emergency is blatantly evident this year. We’ve had the hottest days and anomalies never seen before. One disturbing indicator is the temperature of the oceans. Marine issues are increasingly at the core of the climate change debate. In this online panel, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center, journalists share how they are working on improving the coverage of the oceans. Participants will hear from reporters investigating the effects of climate change on fishing stocks and how this is driving conflicts in communities in the Global South. Participants will also explore science stories that connect local impacts with the global effects of global warming. 


The panel will run for 30 minutes, followed by a 10-minute Q&A.

The GLF Global Media Seminar is open to English-speaking journalists who report on climate change and sustainable development and are currently collaborating with at least one media outlet of global, regional, or national reach. You can apply to participate here.
