Deadline: IJNR Ocean and Climate Workshop Series – Northeastern U.S.

Event Date: 
June 21, 2021

More than 50 million people live along the highly urbanized corridor that lies roughly between Washington, D.C. and Maine – and within close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean, where warming waters and rising seas are presenting new challenges to municipal leaders, residents, resource users and lawmakers. But while the ocean displays some of the most acute symptoms of human-induced climate change, it also holds the keys to climate mitigation, adaptation and a sustainable future.

On July 7-8, the Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources will conduct a virtual workshop focused on the ocean and climate in the northeastern United States, designed to help journalists explore ocean issues that are underreported in popular media. Through conversations with a range of experts, this two-day workshop will explore regional impacts of climate change on the ocean, the ocean’s potential to mitigate the impacts of climate change, the ocean’s place in human food systems and the economic, social, scientific and policy implications of those issues.
