Education and Training in Environmental Journalism
Instructors in environmental journalism often find it useful to share ideas and resources, reading suggestions and examples of student projects.
Resources for teachers
Listserve for SEJ Educators — SEJ operates the SEJ-edu e-mail listserv to serve as a forum for teachers and students to exchange information about teaching and learning environmental journalism. If you're an SEJ member, we welcome your participation. Go here for information on joining the listserv and accessing archives. The listserv is managed by Dave Poulson.
