DEADLINE: Ocean + Climate Workshop Series — California Coast

Event Date: 
July 30, 2021

The Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources will conduct a virtual workshop focused on the ocean and climate along the California coast, 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.

Applicants must submit a resume, one or more clips and brief statement of interest via Submittable.

For each workshop, we will select up to 25 new applicants who represent diversity in geography, outlet, race, gender, experience and journalistic medium.

  • Priority will be given to qualified journalists of color.
  • We will consider allowing several national outlets to attend all remaining Ocean workshops if space allows.
  • Participating journalists will be eligible to apply for small reporting stipends following completion, intended to support coverage of an issue or issues addressed during the workshop. Funding may be used for travel or other reporting costs. Please note that we expect journalists to abide by all necessary Covid-related safety protocol during post-workshop travel and reporting.

Registration is free. Accepted journalists will be sent a registration link.

When: August 24-25, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET

Deadline to apply: July 30, 2021 at midnight MT (July 31, 2021 at 2:00 a.m. ET)
