Climate Change and Future Generations

Climate change is unfolding – and accelerating – across generations. The media plays a key role in shaping public debate, including Britain’s national newspapers which continue to reach large audiences. The lecture briefly outlines why the Earth’s climate is changing so rapidly. It then focuses on how future generations are represented in newspaper coverage of climate change and whether the emergence of a global youth climate movement is reframing how climate change is covered by the press.
