The Lookout Station offers a hacking solution to journalists
THE Observation station, in partnership with Trase powered by the Stockholm Environmental Institute and Global Canopy, is launching a call for applications for the Hack for Journalists solution on the theme “Hacking finance to end deforestation”.
The online program is scheduled for January 31, February 4 and 8, 2022 and consists of three hacks, which will help participants share experiences, explore problems, and identify solutions.
The hack aims to explore the role of finance in driving / stopping deforestation and the link between products, global trade and investments that cause environmental destruction.
Journalists who cover the environment, science, sustainability, economics, business, urban planning, lifestyle and consumer products can register for this free online masterclass.
Organizers say attendees will explore necessary solutions by digging deeper into problematic areas as well as the role of the media in facilitating systems change with other like-minded journalists from around the world.
A total of 20 journalists will receive hands-on training on tools to identify companies and financial institutions involved in (zero) deforestation and discuss how to address the complex issue at the intersection of business and sustainability with experts from the World Economic Forum, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and Solution Journalism Network.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion upon completion of the training.
