Özet

This study aims to respond to how the news can play a role in the education of environmental ethics. Based on the representations of the facts related to the environment unfolding the breaking/meeting points between the occupational ethics of journalism and the environmental ethics, it is suggested that all of these differences are methodologically and essentially artificial. Defined as a superior ethics, the ethics of environment and journalism are going to be addressed as parts of the same totality going hand in hand. The emphasis, therefore, will be on the fact that the environmental ethics should be included in the curriculum of communication.
