Agenda for SEJ's 25th Annual Conference

Save money! Earlybird registration ends Aug 1st and tours are filling, so don't delay — register now for Environmental Journalism 2015 in Norman, Oklahoma. Come to the land of weather, water and energy, Oct 7-11 — and prepare to be surprised. We and our host, the University of Oklahoma, will fill your notebook with story ideas. The storytelling landscape has changed so we're providing video and graphics training, all-day tours and sessions on fracking & quakes, climate change & extreme weather, water rights & fights, Native Americans & diversity, ag & soil health, and so much more. Peruse the full draft agenda, book your hotel, reserve your exhibit space or apply for a diversity fellowship (Jul 7 deadline). Image: Hydro towers. As Oklahoma is a microcosm of energy rights and fights across the nation, multiple panels and Saturday's plenary session will look at the issues.
