Earth Journalism Toolkit

With World Environment Day coming up on 5 June and the next UN climate-change negotiations running from 6-17 June, you might be interested to know about the updated Earth Journalism Toolkit , produced by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network.

It includes 34 environmental health topic pages and 18 climate change pages --- each with background information, tips for reporters, case studies and links to more resources. There are also 6 skills pages and a whole set of resources.

You can also comment on any of the pages. I have included the full list of weblinks below.
Best wishes
