The Death of Environmental Journalism – June 4, 2010
In today’s media landscape, the environmental reporter is increasingly becoming an endangered species. At the same time, citizens who care about the planet have greater access to global information than ever before. Join us as we talk with a panel of experts about the changing media landscape and its implications for those who care about sustainability, the environment and the “places” (neighborhood/city/county/region/state/country/continent/planet) in which we live.
