Climate Arena Conference

The meeting place for journalists and researchers working on climate issues
across Europe.

18-19 October 2024 Bologna, Italy

Climate Arena is where world-changing climate investigations are born. Well – that’s the aim!

This is a hands-on, working conference on European climate reporting. Come and meet other journalists and climate scientists, learn how award-winning investigations were done, get the datasets, understand the methods, and find your next project collaborators.

Here, both journalists and scientists will break out of your bubbles, uncover information the public needs to know, and develop projects to make it connect with them, and have impact.

Together, we can unwash greenwashing, uncover lobbying, expose environmental crimes, and empower our audiences to hold power accountable. Join us.

The Arena Climate Network is an open-access network by and for journalists. It is for those who want to focus on all aspects of the climate crisis and who want to do in-depth, investigative work.

The Climate Arena Conference unites journalists, scientists, and researchers, with the shared goal of improving climate reporting in Europe.


We have a fellowship opportunity for those who have a cross-border and investigative climate story idea and are eager to work in a team setting. Your project idea could be investigative, data-related, or both.
