Reporting on climate change and health will be center stage on Wednesday, April 30, at Harvard University’s Barker Center for the Humanities.
A 4-6 p.m. public lecture on “Covering a Changing Climate: The Media Challenge” is to feature correspondent Bill Blakemore of ABC News, Steve Curwood of the “Living on Earth” public radio program, science writer Cornelia Dean of The New York Times, and Kevin Klose of National Public Radio. A program description says the reporters will focus on the media’s role in covering climate issues and “the challenges of keeping pace with the science of a changing environment.”
From 12:30 to 3:30 that same day, the university’s Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School is cosponsoring with the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) a workshop for reporters and editors. An online registration form is available at http://chge.med.harvard.edu/reg/media_workshop_08.php.
The two meetings are to be held in the Thompson and Plimpton Rooms, Rooms 110 and 133, at the Barker Center at 12 Quincy Street.
