Coverage Week 2020
As the wildfires in the Western US have made abundantly clear, the climate crisis is here and requires action now.
With just weeks until the US elections, Covering Climate Now and its media partners are shining a light on politics and climate: Why are the 2020 elections so critical for climate in the US and globally? What are the most important elections for climate? How are young voters changing the conversation? To address these questions and more, CCNow has launched a #ClimatePolitics2020 joint coverage week, running September 21 – 28. To kickoff the week, a number of partners have elevated the voices of the young people whose lives will be most shaped by the climate crisis.
CCNow partners, including CBS News, Columbia Journalism Review, The Guardian, HuffPost, The Intercept, KPCC, KCRW, The Nation, NBC News, NowThis, Mother Jones, PBS NewsHour, Reuters, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, VICE and more are running abundant, high-profile coverage of the climate story and its role in the 2020 US elections. Many CCNow partners are sharing content across the collaboration to encourage maximum reach and impact. The goal? To make sure as many people as possible know what’s at stake on November 3rd.
