London, United Kingdom, 2009/09/21 - World Television has developed climatetalks.TV in order to host video footage and other multimedia assets related to climate change from a variety of sources to support journalists' stories around COP15, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
World Television today launches climatetalks.tv, an online video news portal for journalists in the lead up to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP15). COP15, the most significant global meeting this year, will be held in Copenhagen between 7 and 18 December.
World Television, which has a long track record in environmental communications, has developed climatetalks.tv in order to host video footage and other multimedia assets related to climate change from a variety of sources to support broadcast, print and online journalists’ stories around the event.
Video footage will be available for download in broadcast-quality from October through until the end of December 2009 and beyond into 2010. In addition to providing the latest stories on the debate, the site also incorporates RSS-feed functionality so journalists can sign-up to receive alerts when new content is added.
World Television Founder Peter Sibley, says “We’ve developed and launched climatetalks.tv to support the communications activities of over 1,000 organisations attending the Copenhagen event in December, as well as the hundreds of companies and government bodies who have a stake in the climate change debate. Broadcast and online journalists will need news content from the widest range of sources to report authoritatively on what is probably the most pressing issue of the 21st century and climatetalks.tv will deliver it; 24 hours a day, seven days a week”.
World Television will also be onsite at the conference to provide full production and technical support services for its clients during the summit, including television crews and online and broadcast distribution facilities.
2009 is a critical year in the worldwide effort to tackle climate change. Meetings and negotiations throughout the last decade will culminate in the COP15 event, where the world’s governments have set themselves the challenge of agreeing upon a global response to the issue.
