SEJ collaborated in June 2013 with MSU's Knight Center for Environmental Journalism, Kellogg Biological Station's Long Term Ecological Research site, and the Institutes for Journalism and Natural Resources, for a 2-day workshop for scientists and journalists. It's purpose: to better communicate climate change information to the public. Read a write-up of the event here. Photo courtesy MSU.
SEJ and the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital invited SEJ members to an online event Feb 1, 2013. Members were able to preview beforehand "A Fierce Green Fire," a sweeping history of the environmental movement by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mark Kitchell, inspired by a book of the same name written by SEJ co-founder Phil Shabecoff, author, former environmental correspondent for the New York Times and founding publisher of Greenwire. Then, on the day of the forum, those signed-up were able to dial in to the conference call. Listen to an audio recording of that conversation with Shabecoff and Kitchell.
Co-sponsored by SEJ and the Knight Center for Environmental Journalism at Michigan State University, this fellowship opportunity is for journalists and scientists to discuss ways to better help the public appreciate the risks and understand the choices they, their communities, and their governments face, during this June 9, 2012 event in Cleveland, OH.
