keep it in the ground

July 8th – 13:30-14:30 – UNESCO room II
One of the big climate change stories this year is the campaign for investor divestment from fossil fuel funds. The advocacy of the Guardian Media Group, and its partnership with 350.org has galvanised debate, major institutions are speaking out, and it is providing a platform which potentially can trigger engagement with new audiences on climate change issues. But what does it mean for objective journalism, and does it reduce the scope of discussion on other climate change topics? This is a High-Level Media Panel Discussion, moderated by Dr James Painter, Director of the Journalism Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University
