The Guardian launches new series on climate change

News 16.03.2015

Our 2014 Laureate Alan Rusbridger explained how the Guardian team came up with the idea of a new narrative to discuss climate change, “the greatest threat to humanity,” as the next big challenge for the newspaper before Rusbridger would step down as the Editor-in-Chief this summer.

It was at a meeting with fellow Laureate Bill McKibben during the 2014 Award Week in Stockholm that Rusbridger realised the Guardian needed to find an alternative way to engage the public on the topic of climate change and “make the world care”.
