Free event! Workshop on Climate Change in the Americas on Miami Beach
“Climate Change in the Americas” is the theme of the 35th edition of the annual Journalists & Editors Workshop on Latin America and the Caribbean to be held on March 27-28, 2018, at Florida International University’s Miami Beach Urban Studios.
Each year, FIU’s Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center and School of Communication+Journalism partner to provide a forum for journalists, scholars and policy-makers to discuss the social, economic and political issues facing the hemisphere. These conversations represent informed, interdisciplinary efforts toward enhancing and deepening news coverage, policy decision-making, and the general public’s understanding of the region.
This event is free and all are welcome. Space is limited so everyone must pre-register for sessions and workshops to participate.
In recent years the news industry has wrestled with the challenge of understanding and reporting on the world’s changing climate and the increasing number of disasters that some, but not all, attribute to that change. This event will bring together experts to explain the science and journalists to share the latest techniques in “how to” workshops.
Join us for presentations that explore climate change topics relevant to the Americas. Discussions will include conversations on policy, as well as informative discussions about the realities of sea level rise. Attendees can expect workshops with valuable perspectives from on-the-ground experts, media professionals, researchers, educators and students.
