"Climate Change and the News: Impact in the Great Lakes" will also look at the physical basis for climate change science and the effects of climate change on water quality and supply in the Great Lakes region.
The seminar is sponsored by the Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting, which is also offering "Climate Change and the News: Seminar for News Editors," focusing on what news audiences need to know about climate change and how communities are tackling the issue. The registration deadline for that seminar, to be held Sept. 18, is Monday, Aug. 25.
A limited number of participants who must travel a significant distance to attend the seminar will be eligible to receive a reimbursement of up to $250 to support travel and lodging expenses. Metcalf has reserved a block of double-occupancy hotel rooms near the seminar venue, the WBEZ Chicago offices at the Navy Pier, to provide a discounted lodging option for participating journalists.
