The Landscape Institute Awards 2023 takes place on Friday 3 November 2023 and will be hosted by Justin Rowlatt.
This year we’re very excited to be joined at the LI Awards by Justin Rowlatt, the BBC’s first-ever climate editor. Justin reports from the frontline of our changing world, documenting how global warming is reshaping ecosystems and economies. You’ll have seen him on the TV news, you’ll have heard him on the radio and you will even have read his articles online.
Justin also presents television and radio documentaries. His latest programmes for BBC1 explored “What You Really Need to Know” about switching to electric vehicles and heat pumps. On radio, he has been investigating the implications of the giant chemistry experiment humanity is conducting on the Earth’s atmosphere in his “Geochemical History of Life on Earth” for the BBC World Service.
Justin was the first journalist to get to the front of the so-called “doomsday glacier” in the West Antarctic. Thwaites Glacier is the fastest-changing area of ice in the world. If it melts it would raise global sea levels by more than a metre.
But it isn’t all doom and gloom, as Justin has been leading the BBC’s coverage of the renewable revolution that is transforming how the world generates electricity.
His current role, as BBC Climate Editor, is the culmination of a long and varied career. Along the way, Justin spent a year living as ‘Ethical Man’ for Newsnight, he was part of the team that launched The ONE Show on BBC1, he’s been a reporter on Panorama, and he was North of England correspondent for Channel 4 News.
