Environmental peace journalism

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

Environmental peace journalists may promote information that seeks to promote harmony with humankind and the environment.  Kunelius (2018) explains the opportunity for journalists to cover a new field for society in climate change.  Singer (2010) reviews the economic, organizational, narrative, and relationship structure changes in the field of journalism.  Sharif and Medvecky (2018) evaluates the challenges for environmental journalists in environments where a majority of the news is political coverage.  Owens (2015) emphasizes the importance of teaching traditional news standards and values in journalism education in the digital age.
