2021 was a critical year for climate action. With COP26 all wrapped up and the announcement of the Glasgow Climate Pact presented with a little bow on top, there’s a lot for journalists and media practitioners to look forward to in 2022.

COP27 will be taking place in Egypt, countries are expected to have dialogues around loss and damage, there’s a hope for more governments to pursue the path to phasing down fossil fuels, and much more!

Sit back, sip on some eggnog, and join our team as we engage in interactive discussions about what all this means for climate storytelling, in our end-of-year community hangout.

Bonus: We’ll be chatting about some exciting new opportunities for you to get your stories out into the world.

DATE: Wednesday 22nd December, 2021
