Post COP 26 Action to Save the Planet : Media Solutions for Sustainable Future - 6th ABU Media Summit on Climate Action and Disaster Prevention
Perhaps the most important global event of 2021 has been the UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP26, held in Glasgow in the UK. For two weeks in October and November, thousands of delegates from Governments, UN agencies, NGOs, civil society, commerce and the media met to discuss the common existential threat facing all humanity, namely an increasing, human-induced carbon footprint which is contributing to global warming and climate change.

Led by Presidents, Prime Ministers and other leaders from most countries on the planet, the attendees were invited to commit to making change for future generations.

It is vital that media practitioners be the gateway in analysing and disseminating vital information from COP26 to readers, listeners and viewers in their home countries. Often, they are unfamiliar with some of the concepts, language or even the politics of international decision-making.

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.

The 6th ABU Media Summit on Climate Action and Disaster Prevention with the title Post COP26 Action to Save the Planet: Media Solutions for Sustainable Future not only seeks to address the UN Secretary-General’s ‘call to action’, but also to provide participants with an overview of the COP26 conference outcomes and next steps. This information is designed to enable journalists and content makers to better understand the socio-politico nature of COP26 and to more deeply immerse themselves in reporting on the outcomes and issues arising from the event.
