“Yale Climate Connections
,” the Yale program’s online news service and national radio broadcast, will play a central role in the new partnership. Editor Bud Ward
, a veteran environmental reporter and co-founder of the Society of Environmental Journalists, said “Pulitzer is world-renowned as a center of journalism excellence. We look forward to working together to develop news content and train the current and next generations of climate change reporters.”
The partnership's first event will be a visit by Eli Kintisch
, an award-winning correspondent for Science Magazine
on Dec. 1 at Yale.
The new partnership follows a several-year initiative between Yale and the Pulitzer Center that explored the evolving relationship between religion and the environment, including an International Conference on Ecological Environment recently held in Beijing, China.
The Pulitzer Center is a non-profit journalism organization based in Washington, D.C., with the mission of promoting in-depth engagement with global affairs through its support of international coverage of underreported issues across all media platforms and an innovative program of outreach and education.
The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication is based at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, the oldest institution of higher learning devoted to conservation and natural resource management in the United States. It conducts research on public climate change knowledge, attitudes, policy preferences, and behavior at the global, national, and local scales and publishes Yale Climate Connections
, an online news service and national radio broadcast.
