A key activity in the formation of this Special Issue of New Media & Society was the organizing of an online workshop: “Truth, facts, and fake: The shifting epistemologies of news in a digital age.” The event was an experiment in exploring the possibilities of organizing conferences in ways that are more sustainable in terms of climate, time, and money, and in seeing whether the exchange of ideas could be improved by moving beyond conventional in-person approaches. Such conferences are rare despite advancements in digitization and despite the many problems surrounding climate change that call into question the sustainability of frequent international air travel. This commentary presents the platform used (which is now available and free for others to use), our experiences from the conference, and our reflections on the importance of taking the scientific conclusions on climate change seriously also in the organization of our own research activities.
