Institute for Environmental Journalism Summer 2019
July 15 - July 26, 2019
Come learn journalism and environmental science fundamentals with emphasis in urban issues at The New School, located in Union Square!
Participants will explore NYC and gain first hand experience in field reporting on environmental justice, climate change and renewable energy. As this is a day program, participants have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the city each afternoon, seeing for themselves how environmental issues impact so many people.
Award-winning journalists and instructors will teach best practices in sourcing, interviewing, research and writing techniques, while research scientists and other expert guest speakers will cover environmental science, environmental justice, climate change and human impact in the urban environment from the waterways to energy concerns. Under the guidance of professional reporters, participants will spend the afternoons reporting and producing an original piece of publishable journalism they will complete by the end of the Institute.
About The New School: Founded a hundred years ago, The New School has courses in the emerging social sciences, international affairs, and liberal arts, as well as art, design, and management. Located in Greenwich Village, the Journalism + Design program believes that design methodologies and systems thinking are key to untangling the complex problems of 21st century journalism.
