The Guardian's divestment campaign - the rights and wrongs of journalism as advocacy (ROOM CHANGED to ROOM II)

Special session

Objectives:

One of the big climate change stories this year is the campaign for investor divestment from fossil fuel funds. The advocacy of the Guardian Media Group, and its partnership with 350.org has galvanised debate, major institutions are speaking out, and it is providing a platform which potentially can trigger engagement with new audiences on climate change issues.But what does it mean for objective journalism, and does it reduce the scope of discussion on other climate change topics?

Chair(s): J. Painter (University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom)
