Demystifying: How climate change can be part of any beat

Thursday, April 11, 12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m., Room 150 Columbia Hall

Rosalind Donald is a PhD candidate in Communications at Columbia University. She researches the community understanding of climate change in Miami, focusing on the way the city’s politics, infrastructure and environment influence the way climate change is interpreted in policy and the popular imagination. Alongside her research, she has also taught media studies methods and production at NYU. Before she moved to the U.S, she was deputy editor of Carbon Brief, a fact‐checking website focused on climate science and policy in the media.

In this talk, Ros will discuss how journalists in Miami are seeking to cover climate change in a way that brings in concerns like health, real estate, financial markets and social justice. She’ll discuss how to integrate climate change into health, business, real estate, arts and science/environment coverage, regardless of scientific expertise – and why it’s important.
