The ABU Media Summit is held three weeks after the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (COP26) at which over 25,000 delegates from Governments, UN agencies, NGOs, scientific communities, civil society, commerce and the media discussed how to avert the common existential threat facing all humanity, namely an increasing, human-induced carbon footprint which is contributing to global warming and climate change. It is a call for active engagement of media in driving the post-COP26 agenda.
The climate clisis has changed the dynamics of our societies and is impacting all aspects of human activities. The Summit is a proactive event, which seeks to address the urgency of the sitation, the need to act now. A line of high-level speakers will provide participants with an overview of the COP26 conference outcomes, next steps and most importantly how media professionals can engage their audinces for climate action and disaster prevention.
It is vital that media practitioners are part of the conversation and be the gateway in analysing and disseminating vital information from COP26 to readers, listeners and viewers in their home countries. However, we havent fully utilized the immense power and reach of media for educating broad audiences about climate change adaptation, mitigation and disaster prevention and preparedness.
Since 2014, the ABU has actively addressed the need for accurate reportage of the subject through a series of regional summits which highlight specific issues and provide journalists and content makers with the tangible skills they need to ensure the comprehensive delivery of invaluable information to readers, listeners and viewers.
