JOURNALISTS COVERING CLIMATE ISSUES (workshop) / by Bear Guerra

Via Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism:

“The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY announces its next Resilience Journalism Fellowship, to be held July 6 – July 12, 2019. This program will be held primarily in New York’s six-million-acre park, the Adirondacks.

This July, 12 journalists will gather in upstate New York for six days of study and discussion. We will look at city resilience in the state’s capital region before heading into the mountains. The Fellowship will be an opportunity to learn about the science and practice of resilience while unfettered from the daily demands of journalism.

We will be housed for the majority of the program in Newcomb, along the shores of Rich Lake. Lodging is rustic, with group meals and evening campfires. Canoes are available in the evening, and hiking trails are nearby.

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?”

DEADLINE: June 1.
