India Today joins global publishers to create Climate Publishers Network

NEW DELHI: The India Today Group has joined an initiative for a new publishers’ network to collaborate on their coverage of climate change ahead of the UN Climate Change Summit in Paris.


India Today is among the 25 media organisations from around the world to have created the Climate Publishers Network (CPN) coordinated by the Global Editors Network (GEN).


It will provide a mutual syndication of articles related to climate change free of charge during the run-up to COP 21. Each media organisation will be able to re-publish material without having to worry about license fees.


The aim of the collaboration is to widen each publisher’s spectrum of coverage between now and the UN Climate Change Summit in December.


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.


Apart from India Today, 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), 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).


Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger, El Paris editor-in-chief Antonio Cano, and GEN president Ricardo Kirschbaum 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,” the trio said.


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.
