On September 30th, the 2021 Dart Awards honorees joined us for three roundtable conversations to discuss their craft, and approach to writing and reporting complex stories.
Online editor Camille Baker spoke with Britt Wray, PhD about climate change, the mental health crisis it is predicted to induce and how climate reporters can cope with the difficulties of the beat. Wray is an author, broadcaster and researcher. She is also a Human and Planetary Health Fellow at Stanford University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where she investigates the mental health impacts of the climate crisis and their disproportionate burden on young people.

The Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma in Europe (DCE) has been engaged over the past two years in a project to produce best practice guidelines for journalists covering conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV). It is now seeking to fill a seven-month contract to deepen the outreach of this new resource so that journalists and filmmakers around the world have the opportunity to build the principles in these guidelines into their working practice.
