DEADLINE: Weekend Resilience Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
June 15, 2018
CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

Resilience Reporting Fellowship

June 30 - July 1, 2018 - Rockfall Foundation, Middletown, CT

Understanding how systems respond to disturbance is becoming more critical every day. How do cities, states and countries recover after a hurricane devastates communities? How can a region reduce the effects of climate change? Is it possible to manage natural resources such as fisheries in a way that allows for long-term health of the ecosystem?

The Resilience Journalism Fellowship from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, in partnership with the Rockfall Foundation , gives reporters the tools they need to answer these and other important questions through a resilience lens. We immerse our Fellows in the science behind resilience thinking through fieldwork — discussions with scientists, observation of resilience thinking as it relates to ongoing projects, and meetings with businesspeople and community members on the front lines of resilience work. And we couple the fieldwork with classroom discussion on resilience economics, story framing, systems thinking and so much more.

Our weekend program runs from 9AM June 30 to 4PM July 1, and offers journalists a look at what resilience means to their local community. The draft agenda is here.

Tuition is free, and lunch is provided.
