New York Times Institute on the Environment

This was passed along to me from the folks at Columbia's J-school...

Journalists and editors are invited to attend the 4th annual New York Times Institute on the Environment

"How Environmental Issues Influence Our Daily Lives: The Nexus Between Environment, Economics And Business"

March 30-April 4, 2008 Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic.

Application deadline: February 15, 2008

The Program This Institute is a weeklong, intensive workshop for editors and journalists that will supply the background and tools to interpret and report on sometimes-conflicting scientific information about leading environmental issues. Through lectures, discussions, and workshops, this Institute is aimed at presenting to reporters and editors the latest information available, the critical issues they will face, and models for how on might report on environmental change and the economic and business consequences of various environmental issues.

Tuition, lodging and facilities costs will be borne primarily by the sponsoring organizations. Participants pay only a program fee of $500 plus airfare. Some subsidies may be available for qualified applicants.
