Bellona invites journalists to Climate Change Seminar
Participants of a previous Bellona seminar in Svanhovd.
Nowadays regional Russian journalists side step climate change issues – this subject is only very rarely covered in mass media in the Russian part of the Barents region. In organizing this seminar, Bellona intends to invite specialists from both Russia and Norway to inform Russian and Norwegian journalists.
The following topics will be covered during the seminar: the threat of climate change and global warming, Russian and European climate policies, obligations for CO2 reductions, possible solutions to the climate change problem, etc.
Russian and Norwegian journalists will be given the opportunity to share their experience in approaches and in writing about climate change, discuss the difficulties they encounter and the prospects for their work in this sphere.
Bellona hopes that this seminar will enable journalists from Russia to raise their level of knowledge about climate change, and to be more free and experienced when working on articles about climate change issues.
