In the era of fake news, research engagement with the media is more important than ever. Effectively communicating your research to the press can help increase its impact and fire up public engagement. However, talking to the press can be daunting if you don’t have much experience doing so.

This seminar will explore how best to engage with journalists, including what makes a good story and what they need from climate researchers.

We will be joined by Kate Ravilious (freelance writer for the Guardian, Physics World and others) and Rob Windscheffel (Channel 4).

We’ll also hear from Anna Harrison, Media and Communications Manager, and Dr Andy Shepherd who is extremely well-versed in talking to the media!

No need to register, just come along!

Please note: the room is best accessed through the accessible entrance to Clothworkers North, which is located along the right hand side of the building.
