Practical Details

The News Impact Summit in Copenhagen, organised in partnership with the Google News Initiative, will address how climate misinformation undermines public trust in climate policies and stalls progress toward a green transition. Across Europe, vested interests and populist movements have fueled misinformation campaigns that delay crucial environmental actions.

Journalists and media professionals play a crucial role in confronting these threats by exposing greenwashing, political pressure, and disinformation that compromise climate action. The summit offers journalists a hub to strategise effective responses to these narratives.

Through talks, panels, workshops, and interactive discussions, attendees will explore innovative storytelling techniques to highlight the urgency of climate action, debunk falsehoods, and empower communities to demand accountability from policymakers and industry stakeholders.

The Climate Journalism Award will be delivered at the Summit, and the winners will explain the best practices and tools they have used to produce some of the best climate journalism stories and investigations of the year.

By joining the Summit, you will:

  • Immerse yourself in the world of climate journalism through keynote presentations and interactive, hands-on sessions;
  • Learn best practices to reinforce the reliability of climate journalism and foster increased community engagement in climate-related conversations;
  • Gain practical knowledge on how to utilise data to produce compelling climate stories;
  • Meet with local and international experts in the field to reimagine the future of climate journalism.

More info on the programme and speakers will be announced soon.
