How community media can drive climate action

Karura Hall

Climate science and climate politics are extremely complex. Journalists and the media have the tricky task of translating huge amounts of data and information into a language that everybody understands. But how can communities generate their own climate information using their own local media to inspire local people to be part of the solution? Hosted by DW Akademie, this panel will focus on challenges facing community media, highlighting best practices from Africa and Latin America.
