25 Media Organisations Launch Climate Publishers Network
Ahead of the UN Climate Change Summit #COP21 in Paris, 25 media organisations from around the world have created a new publishers network to collaborate on their coverage of climate change. The initiative is coordinated by the Global Editors Network.
The 25 CPN founding partners, brought together by The Guardian, El País and the Global Editors Network, will run this initiative for a six-month period, ending on 11 December - the final day of the UN Climate Change Summit. The founding partners represent a variety of political leanings - from China Daily in China to Politiken in Denmark, from Al Ahram in Egypt to Clarín in Argentina - and are based all over the world: Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East.
The founding partners are: The Age (Australia), Al Ahram (Egypt), China Daily (China), Clarín (Argentina), Der Standard (Austria), De Standaard (Belgium), El Comercio (Peru), El Deber (Bolivia), El País (Spain), El Watan (Algeria), Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany), Gazeta Wyborcza (Poland), The Guardian (United Kingdom), India Today (India), The Irish Times (Ireland), La Presse (Canada), La Repubblica (Italy), Le Monde (France), Le Quotidien de Nouakchott (Mauritania), Politiken (Denmark), The Seattle Times (United States), The Straits Times (Singapore), Stuff (New Zealand), The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) and To Vima (Greece).

Alan Rusbridger, Editor-in-Chief of the Guardian, Antonio Cano, Editor- in-Chief at El País and Ricardo Kirschbaum, President of the Global Editors Network, are inviting more publishers to join the syndicate: “We very much hope that publications across the political spectrum will join us either in using some of our material or, ideally, offering their own material as well.”
Editorial material, as well simple terms and conditions for each publisher, are available from the Climate Publishers Network. A new section will be added for every media partner joining the project.
