SEJ's 29th Annual Conference, Fort Collins, CO, Oct. 9-13, 2019

Environmental Journalism 2019 was hosted by Colorado State University. See the agenda. Most sessions were audio-recorded and are posted on our conference coverage page. It's critically important to SEJ to gather evidence on the impact of our work. So we're tracking stories inspired by or informed by our conference in Fort Collins. The stories don't have to be about Fort Collins; they can be based on sources or ideas you got from being at the conference. Please help us to keep SEJ strong and share links, photos, copies of reporting generated or informed by this conference. It's never too late! Send your story links to Cindy MacDonald, SEJ's Web content manager.
