Join the Pulitzer Center and a panel of top experts from Bangladesh, Brazil and the United States in a virtual conversation about Your Work/Environment, a new initiative aimed at encouraging reporting on climate change and its impact on workers and the workplace. The 90-minute discussion will begin on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at 9:00am EDT and 7:00pm BST (Bangladesh GMT +6 hours).
Global climate risks are playing out in fields and on factory floors and increasingly being discussed in company boardrooms. Attendees to this Pulitzer session will hear what jobs and employment sectors, what factory practices, what sorts of manufacturing – from computer chips to batteries to food production to fast-fashion – are threatened or face change.
The panelists will consider how climate change has been covered in the media and respond to questions about what is missing from the reporting landscape. This event will feature presentations and discussion with the following speakers as well as audience Q&A:
