An ELI Member and Press Event

In our current era of fast-paced media, environmental journalists face the daunting challenge of rapidly reporting accurate information while also disseminating complex regulatory, legal, and scientific issues to a broad audience. This challenge is further compounded by the increasingly politicized nature placed onto many environmental issues.

Join ELI and King & Spalding for an event that will begin with a light networking lunch followed by an “off the record” panel featuring leading environmental journalists discussing issues that affect their daily work and environmental journalism more broadly, including which stories receive coverage, how they approach reporting and disseminating environmental issues to a diverse readership, and common practices when interviewing environmental attorneys. Participants are welcome to ask the panel questions during Q&A.
