Both the environment and journalism face new challenges under the Trump Administration. Amidst these challenges, there are still as many opportunities to report on the environment as there are reasons to do so. Staff members of the global conservation news service Mongabay.com, which has been publishing since 1999 and now reaches 2 million readers per month in nine languages, will share how they developed careers covering this important beat. The staff will also discuss how they see the landscape changing during this pivotal period and the role of nonprofit and entrepreneurial journalism in 2017 and beyond.

Panelists include:

Rebecca Kessler, contributing editor

Glenn Scherer, contributing editor

Mike Gaworecki, staff writer and editor

Erik Hoffner, editor and content strategist

Directions:

The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
