Women leading climate action: Fighting fake news

Tuesday 6 Oct

About this event

The way we consume information has changed dramatically in the last few decades. Self-publishing and social media mean that false or misleading information can be created and shared incredibly fast, seen by thousands before anyone has even stopped to ask if it’s true.

ActionAid has partnered with Women’s Agenda to let you hear from diverse women who are leading climate action in Australia and around the world.

The fourth event in our webinar series will host a panel of media experts to explore the topic of fake news and discuss how women can use the media as a tool to lead the fight against misinformation and climate denialism.

Facilitated by Women’s Agenda Founding Editor, Angela Priestley, we will be joined by three experts in the field: MediaScope advisor Denise Shrivell, climate change psychology researcher, Belinda Xie and Sharon Bhagwan Rolls who leads ActionAid’s Pacific partner, the Shifting the Power Coalition.

Join the discussion with women taking action on climate change around the world!

Please note: You will receive an email with your registration confirmation and the Zoom link the day before the event.
