Climate change and cross-cultural reporting
Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time and according to the Anna Lindh Intercultural Trends Survey over 85% of respondents in both Europe and the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean, reported being interested in news and information on climate change and issues linked to the environment from the other shore of the Mediterranean. This common ground and mutual interest paves the way for dialogue on these issues.
That is why the Anna Lindh Foundation is happy to dedicate the next edition of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform on the 25th of May to cross-cultural reporting on climate change in the Euro-Mediterranean.
“With these virtual exchanges, the Foundation aims to encourage a facilitated debate on what could be done to improve cross-cultural reporting and by working on areas of mutual interest ”, underlines Eleonora Insalaco, Head of Operations and Intercultural Research at the Anna Lindh Foundation.
The platform will start with a brief introduction by Mariam Traore Chazalnoel, who is a Thematic Specialist on Migration, Environment, and Climate Change at the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Ms. Traore is also a contributor to the upcoming fourth edition of the Anna Lindh Intercultural Trends Report.
About the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform
The Intercultural Trends and Media Platform is organised by the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED) bringing together media, academia, and civil society to create a network and to discuss how perceptions between Europeans and Southern and Eastern Mediterranean people have evolved in recent years as a result of the growing migratory and refugee movements, the rise of populist’s discourses and phenomena of violent extremism.
If you are a journalist, member of civil society or academic who would like to participate in a future edition of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform, please do not hesitate to contact us (Johannes.Jauhiainen@annalindhfoundation.org - Intercultural Research Social Media Executive).
