SEJournal Online Covering Climate Solutions

As part of a special report focused on covering climate solutions, we take closer looks at nature-based, ocean-based and methane/energy-based solutions, with special tipsheets and toolboxes. In coming weeks, we'll also look at sustainable-business solutions. Check out the latest, below, and stay tuned for more.

 

SEJournal Online Covering Climate Solutions - Nature-based

 

Nature-Based Solutions Toolbox

As concerns over global warming, the endangerment of plant and animal species, and water rights escalate, many environmentalists are turning to Indigenous people for guidance. As part of a Society of Environmental Journalists special initiative focused on covering climate solutions, we take a closer look at nature-based solutions and Indigenous people with reporter Brian Bull. Check out a resource toolbox and stay tuned for a reporting tipsheet in coming weeks. Plus, be sure to register for a Sept. 28 webinar on covering Indigenous communities and nature-based climate solutions.

Ocean Solutions Tipsheet

WaveAs part of a Society of Environmental Journalists publishing project focused on covering climate solutions, we take a closer look at ocean-based solutions. In this special tipsheet, ocean scientist and science writer Juli Berwald offers a primer on the climate-related challenges and possibilities in the global ocean’s physics, chemistry and biology. Plus, watch a recent SEJ ocean solutions webinar.

Ocean Solutions Toolbox

Oceans and climate change intersect with many other issues, a crossover likely to be emphasized in the upcoming United Nations Ocean Conference and in future ocean-based climate discussions. This list of resources reflects some of that intersection in order to help environmental journalists better cover the field of “blue climate” solutions.
