Workshop for climate communication in Paris
The FIM (Forum International de la Météo en du climat) is a well known and yearly gathering of weather presenters, usually in Paris. Climate without Borders wants to cooperate with this FIM to work on climate awareness. Weather presenters from all over the world, attending this event in June, will have the opportunity to learn all about the (social)science that comes with climate communication, and during our workshop they will learn how to communicate about extreme weather. Weather presenters from Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe will share their best practices and work on the best climate stories.
To make this happen, we will need to give a financial support to the FIM, who will take care of the flights and hotel from weather presenters from developing countries.
We already organized a workshop on climate communication and awareness at the COP (UN climate summit) in Bonn, Germany, supported by the WMO and UNFCCC, in December 2017. The reach and outcome were a huge success.
