Bengaluru Edition

The Climate Data Journalism Workshop- Bengaluru edition

In partnership with the Azim Premji University, IndiaSpend curated a series of 2- day Climate Data Journalism workshops across 5 different cities. The main aim is to bridge the wide gaps in understanding climate change and its impact on the socio-economic fabric of the country combined with an evident apathy on the part of editors and owners of mainstream media.

The workshops focused on providing guidance, imparting data and solution journalism to journalists, journalism students, and civil society organizations on how they can contribute in a more meaningful way to reporting on climate change, the odds of sparking public interest and steering attention to understanding one’s role in the fight for the planet.

Through Climate Data Journalism Workshops we have built a cohort of climate change journalism networks. The workshops have contributed to the formation of this collective body, indicating collaboration and shared interests in reporting on climate change-related issues.

The main components of the workshop included sessions on data, visualizations, policy, misinformation and media literacy, writing a climate change story, and a few case studies.
