SEJ's 30th Annual Conference, Boise, ID, Sept. 23-27, 2020

Environmental Journalism 2020 will be hosted by Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. Idaho bridges more than the continental divide: A red state with a streak of bright purple, Idaho banks on tech, recreation and agriculture. Its history of logging, ranching and mining has left a complicated legacy on its awe-inspiring landscape. In Boise, America’s fastest growing city, you can ski and golf on the same winter day. But the challenges and opportunities facing state and tribal governments are familiar: urban sprawl, limited resources, energy sources, and conserving the wild for future generations. As the country grapples with COVID-19 restrictions, please know that SEJ conference planners are considering various contingency plans. You can help us by answering a few brief questions and pre-registering for Wednesday workshops (SEJ members only) and Thursday tours that will hopefully be held on-site in Boise. There is no cost for pre-registering. Your spot will be reserved and we will reconfirm your commitment prior to invoicing.

October 9, 2019 to October 13, 2019

SEJ's 29th Annual Conference, Fort Collins, CO

Environmental Journalism 2019 will take place in Fort Collins, Colorado, hosted by Colorado State University. Colorado simultaneously boasts and suffers from a population explosion in Denver and other cities. This purple state is fertile ground for both clashes and collaborations among parties vying for rights to land, water and air, whether to preserve it for wildlife and human recreation or to exploit it for energy extraction. And it is fertile ground for stories! Visit the conference website. See the draft agenda, find a hotel and roommates or sponsor, advertise or exhibit.

September 3, 2014 to September 7, 2014

SEJ's 24th Annual Conference, in New Orleans, LA

"Risk and Resilience" is SEJ's theme for a packed series of events for this conference, Sep 3-7, 2014. New Orleans and south Louisiana are the poster children for both risk and resilience in the 21st Century. Yet, New Orleans is also a place where we can eat, drink, dance, listen to music and generally partake of the whole spectrum of humanities' offerings, and all this with the climate change monster right outside the door. You will leave this conference motivated, empowered and well-connected with story leads, political context, new insights, contacts, research data, experiences and enhanced skills for effective storytelling on relevant issues. Check out the draft agenda, lodging/travel, find a roommate (members only), advertise/exhibit and more. Tours fill fast, so don't delay — register now!
