From nonprofit newsrooms to national television networks and global news agencies, our partners hail from more than 60 countries.

What We Do

Covering Climate Now helps journalists and newsrooms improve the caliber and prominence of their reporting through training, networking, collaboration, and more. Over 500 journalism outlets from around the world have joined CCNow, including some of the biggest names in journalism — the Guardian, TIME, The Times of India, Al Jazeera English, Reuters, Bloomberg, Agence France-Presse, NBC, ABC, CBS News, and more — along with scores of local and special interest publications. CCNow collaborates with journalism support organizations such as Climate Central, the Society of Environmental Journalists, and Solutions Journalism Network to advance the quality, impact, and reach of climate journalism.

“Now more than ever it is important to cover one of the most pressing issues in our lifetimes,” said Al Roker, who announced the collaboration on the NBC News TODAY show.

What We Ask of You

Joining CCNow costs nothing. All we ask is that you commit to our mission of improving the caliber and prominence of climate coverage. Specifically, we invite you to:

Uphold climate science in your reporting to ensure accurate and reliable information reaches the public, fostering informed understanding and meaningful action.
