Social media has flattened the information landscape, allowing more communities to have access to information and increasingly more voices to be heard, especially youth from the global South.
Connect4Climate, the global online community that cares about climate change, hosts a session bringing together social media experts, journalists, academics and other communicators to debate how best to engage the widest audience from all corners of the world and raise the bar on climate change discourse and action.
With more than a quarter million followers, Connect4Climate shows that young people everywhere are hungry for information and eager to get involved.
How can this online energy and engagement be put to best use? How can we leverage the tools available to harness more collective intelligence? What is the role of citizen journalism? How can local climate experiences best contribute to global change?
