Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media

Type of organization: 
Outreach & Education

The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media is an online publication and forum to foster dialogue on climate change among scientists, journalists, policymakers, and the public. The Yale Forum is an initiative of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, directed by Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Edited by veteran environmental journalist and journalism educator Bud Ward, The Yale Forum seeks to provide print, broadcasting, and online reporters and editors timely and credible information on one of the most important and complicated issues of our time. The Yale Forum will include useful media resources on climate change causes, consequences, and solutions. It will also analyze and discuss the process by which climate change is communicated through traditional and new media. In the changing media environment we all face, The Yale Forum defines “media” to include diverse educational and communications venues such as museums, the arts, and music … along with traditional news media and digital new media.
