ComLab #2: Climate Research and the European Green Deal

Climate change poses great challenges for people worldwide and thus journalism also plays a crucial role in effectively communicating mitigation strategies to a wider audience. For this reason, the second Communication Lab was dedicated to the topic of climate research and in particular the European Green Deal. During the three-day workshop in November 2020, journalists from the IJP network were able to exchange ideas with leading scientists and subsequently develop innovative ways to sustainably improve access and knowledge about this complex issue among the general public.

In January, the top three contributions from the second round of the Communication Lab were honored at an online award ceremony.
