If you happen to be in Birmingham (UK) this October 7th, I shall be presenting my work at the News Impact Summit, “A New Era for Climate Change Reporting”, hosted by the European Journalism Center and the Google News Initiative.
I’ll be showing my recent work from Tuvalu, specifically discussing how using drones has enhanced my ability to communicate issues connected to climate change. Registration is free. If you happen to be in the area, I hope to see some of you there!

On Monday 7 October, the News Impact Summit will arrive in Birmingham to discuss how technological and journalistic innovation is enabling new forms of reporting on the climate and its impact on our lives.
In this summit, we will showcase innovative ways of changing the way we tell stories about climate change. Among other things, we will look at journalistic projects that use mapping and open source intelligence to link climate and data analysis, we will discuss how climate change stories are tackled in the newsroom and how news organisations can produce immersive storytelling that helps the audience understand and appreciate the urgency and complexity of climate change.
The summit will host speakers from the BBC, The Guardian, Climate Home, Carbon Brief, El Surtidor, Al-Jazeera, Quartz, the Lookout Station and Extinction Rebellion.
