Thursday webinar aims to help reporters background info to cover a 'greener' economic recovery from pandemic

The Society of Environmental Journalists will host a free Zoom webinar from 1 to 2 p.m. ET Thursday, July 16, to give journalists a deeper understanding of the connections between climate change, covid-19 and the economy, and how all of those can influence the potential for rebuilding the economy in a more environmentally friendly way. Click here to register or for more information.

The website says: "With economies opening up and emissions once again rising, we face decisions about infrastructure, industry, and regulation that will have enduring impacts on our climate and our health. What do journalists need to know to cover these decisions and help the public understand the options and tradeoffs?" Energy & Environment News reporter Nick Sobczyk will moderate a panel:
  • Anne Kelly, vice president of government relations at Ceres Policy Network
  • Jonathan Pershing, environment program director, Hewlett Foundation, and former special envoy for climate change, U.S. Department of State.
  • Justin Worland, energy and environment correspondent, Time magazine.
All journalists are welcome, and the webinar will be available as a recording a day or two afterward on the SEJ website. Click here for recordings of past webinars in this series.
