New York Times Institute on the Environment

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

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.
