My story

Karina Buckley is from Ireland. Karina has worked as a weather presenter with RTE Television in Ireland for seventeen years. She studied biochemistry at university so she has a keen interest in the health impacts of climate change. While training as an assistant producer, Karina encountered mobile journalism and is excited about the possibilities it offers to tell climate change stories with urgency and immediacy. In an effort to emphasize the real-world impacts of climate change to a key group - young people - she visits primary schools with a science show that demonstrates the effects it is likely to have on the weather in Ireland. She looks forward to collaborating with her international colleagues to find more and better ways of raising climate change awareness.
