Description

SEJ national and regional conferences

SEJ’s annual National Conference brings together journalists, scientists, government officials, advocacy leaders and others to explore the many facets of environmental stories in order to improve the quality and accuracy of environmental reporting. National conferences are open to both SEJ members and those who are not members.

SEJ also holds numerous regional conferences and other events to help its 1,000 members polish their craft and get important background on current environmental issues.


Each conference presents an opportunity to meet with other journalists, sit in on training writing and computer workshops, attend panel sessions where current issues are debated by experts, policy-makers and experienced reporters from all types of media.

SEJ national conferences have drawn an array of fascinating keynote speakers including U.S. EPA administrator Carol Browner (1993), U.S. DOE Secretary Hazel O’Leary (1994), Vice President Al Gore, E.O. Wilson and UNEP Under Secretary-General Elizabeth Dowdeswell (1995), Ted Turner and marine biologist Sylvia Earle (1998), and David Brower (1999). SEJ’s Tenth National Conference already has an impressive line-up.

The National Conference also takes journalists out into the field, with full-day or half-day tours to environmental hotspots where issues may be explored on site with experts on hand to present sides and answer questions.

Information about selected past SEJ national conferences is also available.


Regional conferences
SEJ’s regional conferences sprout up wherever enthusiastic and energetic SEJ members join together to organize an event. These events range from three-day sessions including panels and keynoters to simple beer-and-pizza meetings with local experts or policy makers willing to spend a few hours with a handful of journalists. Members interested in organizing a regional event may contact the SEJ office.

The Pensacola News Journal, in conjunction with the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association and the Society of Environmental Journalists, will host a Water Quality Reporting Conference Nov. 12-14 on Pensacola Beach. An array of award-winning journalists will speak on stormwater runoff, the state of our rivers, pharmaceuticals in the water, who is policing the enforcers and why the federal government is the nation's biggest polluter.
