On Thin Ice: Covering Climate Adaptation in a Rapidly Changing World

Event Date: 
April 23, 2024

According to the World Health Organization, 3.6 billion people around the world live in areas impacted by climate change. How are communities in Puerto Rico, Namibia, Mongolia, and the Arctic adapting to their changing environments? Please join the Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellow Program after Earth Day, on Tuesday, April 23, at 6:30-7:30 p.m. EDT, to learn more.

Participants include Reporting Fellow alums from the Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium, which supports student journalists each year:

  • Mandile Mpofu, a Boston-based Zimbabwean journalist and 2023 Boston University Reporting Fellow. For her Pulitzer Center project, she traveled to Namibia, the most arid country in southern Africa, to examine how livestock farmers are adapting to climate change.
  • Gabriel Allen, 2023 University of Colorado Boulder Reporting Fellow. His recent project covered efforts to keep Iñupiat whaling practices alive in Utqiagvik, Alaska. Allen was also part of the Boulder-based grad student team awarded a Pulitzer Center grant for their reporting on a coal ash waste site. 
  • Katie Schulder-Battis, 2023 Northwestern University Reporting Fellow and journalist at the Chicago Reporter. With Pulitzer Center funding, she covered rapid climate change in Mongolia, the world's most sparsely populated country. 
  • Jackie Llanos Hernandez, 2023 University of Richmond Fellow and Florida Phoenix reporter. Her recent Pulitzer Center reporting documented Puerto Rican journalists’ work through the 2023 hurricane season.

Following the moderated conversation, there will be time reserved for a Q&A session. This virtual event is free to attend.
