Organized by journalists for journalists, Covering Climate Now works to improve climate coverage worldwide.
News and media partners
Covering Climate Now supports, convenes, and trains journalists and newsrooms to produce rigorous climate coverage that engages audiences.
Co-founded in 2019 by Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation magazine in association with the Guardian and WNYC, CCNow invites journalists everywhere to transform how our profession covers the defining story of our time. Unless news outlets around the world dramatically improve and expand their climate coverage, there simply will not be the public awareness and political will needed to tackle the crisis.
With hundreds of partner news outlets from over 60 countries reaching billions of people, CCNow helps journalists produce more informative and appealing coverage of the climate crisis and its potential solutions.
We invite journalists and newsrooms worldwide to join our community and to help all of us produce exceptional journalism that engages audiences, holds power to account, and inspires change.
To learn more about the establishment of CCNow, see these pieces by our co-founders, Mark Hertsgaard and Kyle Pope: “A New Beginning for Climate” and “The Media Are Complacent While the World Burns.” For media inquiries and to see news coverage about CCNow, visit our media page.
