For the week of Oct. 3, 2021:
Calgary’s loss is Victoria’s gain.
Sean Holman has left Mount Royal University to become the new Wayne Crookes Professor in Environmental and Climate Journalism at the University of Victoria.
“Climate change is the biggest issue of our time, it’s the biggest story of our time,” Holman told theBreaker.news host Bob Mackin.
A focus of his work will be helping journalists put a human face on those directly affected by the changing climate and environmental disaster, while confronting a post-truth society.
“I think we also need to be thinking about information not just as a controlling force, not just as a force of certainty, but also as a source of community. I really do think that last c, the community that journalism can provide, in an environment of increased uncertainty and lack of control, is going to be so important in the coming three decades.”
