SEJ's annual conference brings together journalists, scientists, government officials, advocacy leaders and others to explore the many facets of environmental stories in order to improve the quality and accuracy of environmental reporting. Annual conferences are open to both SEJ members and those who are not members.
Each conference presents an opportunity to meet with other journalists, sit in on training writing and computer workshops, attend panel sessions where current issues are debated by experts, policy-makers and experienced reporters from all types of media. The annual conference also takes journalists out into the field, with full-day or half-day tours to environmental hotspots where issues may be explored on site with experts on hand to present sides and answer questions.
Next up: Environmental Journalism 2014: 24th Annual Conference of the Society of Environmental Journalists, Sept 3-7, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Agenda Chair Mark Schleifstein, environment reporter for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, is working with Conference Director Jay Letto and SEJ members in the Gulf Coast Region planning dozens of tours and sessions on the theme "Risk and Resilience."
