The Solutions Journalism Network (SJN) launched the Climate Peer Network in August 2023 to provide a regular opportunity for journalists to discuss and share best practices on climate solutions reporting and to learn from experts on key climate topics.

Now, we’re extending the pilot into an integral part of our climate work. And we’d love you to join. If you’re a journalist looking to connect with like-minded peers covering climate solutions, find more information and register for the Zoom meetings here.

The Climate Peer Network meets on the second Thursday of each month. The virtual sessions include guest speakers and follow-up discussions informed by the network’s needs, as well as ample time for breakout rooms to foster peer connections. Recent topics have included climate visuals, decolonizing climate coverage and the intersection of climate reporting and SJN’s two other core focus areas: democracy and youth mental health.

"We currently have 150 people from more than 20 countries signed up," said Angela K. Evans, SJN's climate network manager.

"The majority of these are journalists and editors, many of whom say the monthly calls are a boost to their sometimes lonely workdays and give them a sense of connection and purpose in their work. As one member recently shared, 'These meetings have helped me get re-motivated when the work I do is draining or seems not to have the impact I’m hoping for.' Another said the group 'fosters a sense of community beyond my newsroom.'"
