#CoveringClimateNow, a joint project of Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation, officially begins September 16th. During that week, more than 220 publications from around the world are going to flood the news with climate crisis stories in a united effort to call the world to action, culminating on September 23 – the day of the Climate Action Summit.
To kick off this initiative, Columbia Journalism Review has teamed up with Columbia University’s Earth Institute and TBWA\Chiat\Day New York to inspire influential journalists to bring the climate crisis to the front page with an immersive art exhibit called "Flood The News."
The exhibit will feature front pages of global newspapers physically treated to reflect the looming impacts of the climate crisis, like rising seas, intensifying heatwaves, declining snowpack, increased pollution, and extreme wildfires.
WHERE & WHEN
The gallery, located on Orchard just south of Grand Street (59 Orchard Street) is open to journalists from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM on Monday, September 16th. Open to the public from 9AM - Noon on Tuesday, September 17th.
The gallery is brought to you by Columbia Journalism Review and TBWA/Chiat/Day NY, with data and findings backed by scientists at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, Climate Central, and federal and internal climate reports.
