Reflecting on the importance of citizen journalism, Zakour said, "I think citizen journalism is a new frontier.
Career journalists are often beholden to the needs of the newsroom and cannot devote as much energy to what may be seen as unimportant, so training members of the public to self-report is a huge step to transparency and bringing awareness, especially so with issues of climate change."
