Sponsored by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
Global warming is among the most urgent, challenging issues of our time. It is also complex, and difficult to explain effectively to the public. In an effort to nurture quality reporting on the subject, YPCCC and the Pulitzer Center are offering an all-day student workshop Friday March 3rd, 2017. The training will be led by the Executive Director of the Pulitzer Center, Jon Sawyer (Yale ’74) and the Editor of Yale Climate Connections and co-founder of the Society of Environmental Journalists, Bud Ward. Reporters and producers for Yale Climate Connections, a daily public radio program, will also instruct.
