2–2:45 p.m. G.M.T.
The Think Tank

Climate change is both a local and global issue and climate journalism needs to be sensitive to this reality. Take the topic of peatland restoration, which is playing out differently across the world, from Scotland to West Africa and to Indonesia.

How can local and global journalists partner effectively to cover the challenge from both perspectives?
