EEA co-hosts media-environment conference
Prof. Jacqueline McGlade
The event, taking place in Lisbon from 2 to 3 April, brings together journalists, scientists, public officials, NGOs and business sector representatives to consider the complexities and trade-offs involved in media reporting of scientific controversies. EEA Executive Director Professor Jacqueline McGlade will be joined by prominent academics, media professionals and policymakers from across the globe in delivering speeches that will guide discussions.
Participants will explore the routines and biases that frame issues, including the role of media companies. They will seek to identify economic, political, legal and cultural measures that can help improve reporting, as well as looking into opportunities for future scientific research on the interaction of the media and the environment.
