Webinar: Using Global Forest Watch

Event Date: 
November 13, 2019

The availability of near-real-time deforestation data via Global Forest Watch is expanding, creating a growing number of opportunities for journalists to leverage this material in their reporting on forest issues.

To help writers capitalize on this opportunity, Mongabay is organizing a free online training on November 13, 2019 at 10:00 AM Eastern Time in collaboration with GFW staff to demonstrate how journalists can use its tools to add evidence to news articles, and to explain how GFW’s Places to Watch methodology is being utilized to identify areas of recent deforestation for on-the-ground investigation and reporting, such as Mongabay’s Forest Trackers article series.
