Metcalf Institute launched the Climate Change Science Seminars for Journalists in 2013 to improve and increase news coverage of climate change, one of the most wide-reaching and complex environmental issues of our time.  Leveraging a grant from The Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, the initiative includes support from a broad collaboration of philanthropic, news, and non-profit partners to the bring Metcalf’s renowned science-based training to journalists across the nation.

With the generous support of this diverse coalition of partners, the seminars are offered at no cost to participating journalists.


What Do Journalists Say About the Seminars?

“This was the best seminar of its kind that I’ve ever attended. Very well organized. Excellent information. Good mix of speakers and topics. It will help my reporting with a much better understanding of climate change.”
- Participant at Climate Change and the News Seminar on Impacts in the Pacific Northwest

“The seminar gave me concrete story ideas that immediately impressed my editors
and made expanded coverage of climate change a virtual certainty at my paper.”
- Participant at Climate Change and the News Seminar on Climate Policy & Economics

“In a day and a half, I gained critical, up-to-date information about the latest scientific data and consensus on the state of sea level rise, ocean acidification, and global climate change — not to mention real-time access to scientists, academics, and policy specialists whose focus is on these issues. Invaluable!”
- Participant at Climate Change and the News Seminar on Impacts in Coastal & Marine Environments

“The…seminar took on complex and nuanced scientific data and made it available in a way
that was both intense and energizing. I had a story written before I had even made it home.”
- Participant at Climate Change and the News Seminar on Impacts in the Pacific Northwest
