Flint, Mich., site of the most serious drinking water crisis in modern U.S. history, will draw hundreds of working reporters from across North America when the University of Michigan-Flint hosts the Society of Environmental Journalists annual conference in 2018. Environmental Journalism 2018 will bring the continent’s environmental press corps to Michigan a month before the crucial U.S. 2018 midterm elections. The conference is designed to provide journalists with the tools they need to hone the craft of writing and reporting in addition to providing insights into critical election-related issues, such as bridging the urban-rural divide. The event, scheduled for October 3-7, 2018, is expected to attract 500-800 attendees — a mixture of journalists, environmental news sources and academics from across the country and globe.
