Environmental journalism, from your backyard to the world. This is important if you read the news. Today’s guest at Sustainability@Work is Gelareh Darabi, an environmental journalist and correspondent at National Geographic Channel / Fox History & Entertainment.
Podcast Episode #8 of Sustainability@Work. A podcast hosted by Samara Croci.
Gelareh has reported from all over the world about different topics connected to the environment.
With her, we will talk about what being an environmental journalist means, how she chooses and builds her stories, and what works best to create awareness and push for change.
In today’s world, where all of us at some point or another are required to convince and engage other people on environmental topics and data, this is a great conversation that made me think about the way we tell stories and the role each one can have as a storyteller in these challenging times.
