Seven journalists from Norway met seven journalists from Portugal to exchange experience and discuss the science of climate change with environmental journalist Ricardo Garcia, and myself, and with extra inspiration and knowledge sharing by experts in specific domains of climate change modelling, oceans and climate change, fire and fire spread under climate change, climate change mitigation, and international negotiations. The initiative was funded through the EEA Grants Programme from Portugal. Given the success of the initiative and the several journalists that were not able to participate owing to limited places, we might be launching a second edition of the course in 2021. Stay tuned.
