BOSTON (April 20, 2023) – The World from GBH and PRX – public radio’s longest-running daily global news program – will relaunch its innovative journalism initiative, “The Big Fix,” to explore global solutions to climate change. Beginning prior to Earth Day on April 21, The World will air two segments a month, shining a light on the people and organizations tackling the climate change crisis.

“The Big Fix connects to our mission to bring important global issues to the forefront and engage our audience in meaningful and impactful discussions,” said Dan Lothian, executive producer of The World. “As we continue to cover the devastating international impacts of climate change, we will also pay special attention to those working on solutions.”

"The Big Fix" is a newsroom-wide effort led by Carolyn Beeler, an environment correspondent and editor at The World. Segments will include audio-rich feature stories and interviews with Marco Werman, host of The World. The coverage will be rooted in the latest climate science and will highlight proven or promising solutions while also revealing the challenges of transitioning away from fossil fuels and adapting to climate impacts.

The first story focuses on how greenhouses can provide a way for small farmers in India to adapt to climate change. Upcoming reports will focus on organic, drought-resistant agricultural techniques in Mexico, the downside of the booming market for carbon credits to local communities in the Brazilian Amazon, and how animals are already adapting to climate change—and the limits they face in that adaptation.

“The Big Fix will focus both on efforts to slash greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of climate change already being felt around the world,” said Beeler. “We’ll be looking at a wide range of potential solutions, from approaches to speeding up the transition away from fossil fuels to restoring and protecting forests and other ecosystems that trap carbon.”

The initiative builds on the success of previous coverage of climate change solutions by The World, including reports on how small Caribbean island nations are working to become more climate resilient, the restoration of the Atlantic rainforest in Brazil, and Denmark's landmark decision to phase out oil and gas by 2050. "The Big Fix" first launched in March 2020 and ran until August 2021. "The Big Fix" will be an ongoing commitment in its new iteration.
