The protection of Indigenous and local communities is essential for ensuring a healthy environment and key in combating climate change and deforestation. In this session on September 29, 2020, journalists discuss how to cover and communicate local stories of livelihoods and resistance in the face of environmental change and globalization, the role of local communities in fighting global environmental challenges, and the positive, or sometimes unintended, consequences of initiatives that promote sustainable livelihoods.
The program will be offered in both English and Spanish with simultaneous translation available as part of a series on environmental journalism presented by the Pulitzer Center, in partnership with Fundación Gabo and Grupo ISA.
This seminar is free to attend, but registration is required.
Panelists: Josh Cogan, photographer and anthropologist; Annika McGinnis, co-founder of InfoNile.org; and Disha Shetty, independent science journalist; in conversation with journalist Camilo Jiménez Santofimio.
