The climate crisis affecting millions around the world, and threatening millions more in the near future, is the biggest story that we as journalists will have to cover.

Journalists are being called on to explain the causes of climate change, investigate those responsible for environmental harm and tell the stories of those living with its effects, while presenting mitigation strategies and solutions - never has this beat been more important.
