Arena Climate Network

The Arena Climate Network is an open-access network by and for journalists. It is for those who want to focus on all aspects of the climate crisis and who want to do in-depth, investigative work.

About the network

The Climate Network was created following the 2020 Dataharvest conference in order to facilitate information flows between journalists covering climate at the local, national and EU level and to tell impactful stories.

The network serves a community devoted to exposing financial greed, corruption, and government malaise that fuel the climate crisis.

It offers journalists a hub for collaboration, discussion and learning from each other. Among the network’s many new activities will be a conference series, combined with training, a mentorship program, and guidance for the setting up of local networks.

Fellowships, hands-on trainings and tailor-made mentorships to journalists who want to do climate investigations.

Coordination of cross-border collaborations, such as the Forever Pollution project.
