THE CLEW JOURNALISM NETWORK WORKSHOP - The challenges of global reporting on energy and climate policy - A special programme for CLEW alumni in parallel with the 3rd Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue.

THE CLEW JOURNALISM NETWORK WORKSHOP

Where policy debate meets journalism

Germany will play a crucial role in international energy and climate policy in 2017. As Chancellor Angela Merkel seeks a new mandate in parliamentary elections in September, Germany has made climate policy a key issue for its G20 presidency. Parallel to the formation of the new German government in November, Bonn will host the COP23 UN Climate Conference.

These events underline how the German Energiewende has become part of a global energy transition. More and more countries are seeking to create low-carbon economies. That poses an emerging challenge for journalism. As a top issue of international politics, energy and climate policy also require top-level journalism that transcends national borders, as well as the boundaries between traditional beats.

Against this background, we are inviting journalists who cover energy and climate policy to our first CLEW Journalism Network Workshop. As energy and foreign ministers convene at the 3rd Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, we will bring together alumni of our media study tours to discuss key issues for reporting on energy and climate policy:

?       What are the key themes and pressing issues in the field of energy and climate policy that require international cooperation among journalists?

?       What models exist for cross-country media cooperation ?

?       What support structures do journalists need as energy and climate policy permeates the global policy agenda?

These questions will be in the spotlight at an invitation-only journalists’ workshop which will be at the heart of our CLEW Journalism Network Workshop.

The full programme of the CLEW Journalism Network Workshop will include:

?       A journalists’ workshop around the challenges of reporting on energy and climate issues, and practical ways to enhance international cooperation among journalists

?       An opportunity to monitor global energy and climate policy debates as the new German foreign minister hosts energy and foreign ministers from around the world at the 3rd Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD)

?       Exclusive meetings with high-level energy policy makers at the BETD

?       Meetings with key experts and policy analysts for briefings on Germany’s election campaign and the current state of the Energiewende

?       Opportunities for individual research and site visits in Germany, assisted by the Clean Energy Wire team (upon individual request)
