How Stories Communicate and Engage People with Climate Change on a Local Level

  • Saturday – 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
  • Frenchmen - 2nd Floor | InterContinental
  • #ONA19LocalClimate

By applying a design thinking focus to storytelling, audience engagement and participatory projects, science journalists and newsroom leaders can demonstrate different ways of telling climate change stories and make the enormousness of anthropogenic climate change relatable on a personal and local level.

This session is designed for:

  • Science journalists interested in applying design thinking to storytelling
  • Newsrooms ready to build new structures for on-the-ground reporting
  • Anyone looking to develop innovative, hyper-local climate change stories
