Lunch and learn with Greenpeace UK’s Global Press Officer



Kai Tabacek, Greenpeace UK’s Global Press Officer

Kai Tabacek, Greenpeace UK’s Global Press Officer, is taking part in a special online event organised by UCLan’s Journalism Innovation & Leadership Programme (JILeaders).

In this off-the-record Lunch and Learn session, he will give an insight into his role in one of the world’s largest organisations to work to protect the environment and campaign against climate change. It will be an opportunity to hear from, and quiz, an organisation that is often at the heart of the story because of its scientific research, investigations, campaigns and activism. 

Kai joined Greenpeace in January 2023 from his role as Senior Press Officer at Oxfam. An experienced media manager specialising in climate, humanitarian and development communication, he has also worked for ITV News and BBC World Service.

The event was organised by JILeaders visiting faculty member Sarah Hartley, a journalism entrepreneur and founder of the Northern Eco environmental newsletter.

She said: “I am thrilled that Kai is giving us the benefit of experience. This opportunity comes just as Greenpeace is due to be in the news a lot over the next few weeks and months. With climate and environment being hot election issues in the many countries going to the polls this year, I’m sure his insights will be valuable for journalists no matter the beat/publication they’re working for.”

JILeaders Lunch and Learn with Kai Tabacek, Global Press Officer, Greenpeace UK, takes place online on Wednesday 13th March, 1.30-3.30pm GMT. Register your place here.
