NAHJ Members Want Help to Cover Climate Change: Climate Matters in the Newsroom Delivers
NAHJ is responding to strong interest from members and to the challenges they face in climate change reporting by extending its partnership with Climate Matters in the Newsroom, to provide free access to local, scientific resources–in Spanish and English–to help journalists cover these topics.
Climate Matters in the Newsroom is introducing a webinar series, in collaboration with NAHJ, designed to help members better understand some of the biggest climate change topics–extreme weather, health, air quality, and water. Segments will feature scientists and diverse experts discussing the latest research, localized information, and available resources to produce popular, reliable, and impactful stories about climate change. Participants will also get a chance to ask the questions they have related to these subjects, and more.
