During our “Living Through the Climate Emergency” joint coverage week in April 2021, Covering Climate Now partners collaborated to produce and share human-centered stories on the climate crisis. Read our recap of the week’s coverage.
Science tells us that the climate emergency is here now. From rising seas to raging wildfires, from sizzling heat to devastating storms and hurricanes, climate change is reshaping daily life in communities around the globe. If humanity doesn’t act, in a big way and soon, the future will be grim.
Many in our audiences know this. They want more information, and they want action. Others continue to have a poor understanding of the scope and severity of the problem. That’s why our new joint coverage week is themed “Living Through The Climate Emergency.” During the week, many CCNow partners are running human-centered stories focused on how people and places experience the climate emergency and we all can survive it.
The week kicks off on Monday, April 12th, in the lead up to Earth Day, with the release of a Climate Emergency Statement by CCNow and eight of our core partners. We invite journalists and news outlets everywhere to sign the statement and participate in the week, themed “Living Through the Climate Emergency.”
Partners who are making their content available for republication and rebroadcast include some of the biggest names in news—Reuters, Bloomberg, Agence France-Presse, NBC News, CBS News, PBS, VICE, Noticias Telemundo, Al Jazeera English, The Guardian, Asahi Shimbun, Times of India—and many local outlets around the world.
