Important workshop for journalists two years after Hurricane Sandy.
Friends and colleagues,
New York City’s immigrant neighborhoods took a major hit from Superstorm Sandy. Yet two years after Sandy, the effects of climate change – including an increase in extreme weather events – remains underreported in media that serves immigrant communities. Ethnic and community media have a vital role to play in helping New Yorkers prepare for and understand shifts in climate patterns, and Feet in 2 Worlds is here to help.
We have teamed up with climate specialists at The New School to offer an evening workshop for journalists. The workshop is being held just before climate change takes center stage in New York with the United Nations Climate Summit on September 23, and the People’s Climate March on Sunday September 21 which is expected to attract as many as 100,000 demonstrators and activists to the city.
Packed with valuable information to bring to your readers, listeners and viewers, the workshop is designed to make your job reporting on climate change, sustainability, and related issues easier and more effective.
Take advantage of this opportunity to better serve your audience on an issue of vital importance.
Join us Tuesday, September 16 at The New School, from 6 PM to 9 PM. Space is limited, so register soon at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/reporting-on-climate-change-a-workshop-for-journalists-tickets-12941870483
