Lectures and workshops under the academic program will be given by Professors of the Juan Dolset scientific and environment journalist department, experts from the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment and specialists from the General Staff of Civil Defense, among others

Climate change, cyclones in the Caribbean Basin, the role, place and vision of the mass media together with Civil Defense and journalistic practices in the coverage of cyclonic events are among the topics to be dealt with in the event.
