This event is a Nordic Spotlight, part of Nordic Bridges.
Around the world, young people have been at the forefront of climate action, highlighting the effects of rising greenhouse gas emissions and demanding more from politicians and corporations.
With these two notions in mind, the Nordic-Canadian Fellowship in Environmental Journalism was born: a chance for emerging journalists under 25 from both regions to report on some of the biggest threats and opportunities related to the climate crisis.
In the past year and a half, the fellows have learned journalism fundamentals – from feature writing to podcasting to video storytelling – and engaged with some of the most critical questions at the feet of journalists and policymakers today like ‘How can we report with, rather than on, Indigenous communities?’, ‘How can we continue collaborating on Arctic issues while Russia wages war on Ukraine?’ and many more.
The work featured in this exhibition is a true testament to the power of cross-cultural collaboration, demonstrating the magic that comes from bringing together like-minded people from countries oceans apart to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Large gallery space located in a large brick building, separate from the Harbourfront Centre main building.
