The Society of Environmental Journalists Annual Conference

The 22nd Annual Conference for the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) will be held in Lubbock, Texas this October 17 to 21. This year’s conference will use its themes on the Dust Bowl of Lubbock as a springboard to discuss larger environmental issues through workshops and presentation. Big topics, like air, wind energy, land-saving, new technology, and more will be covered.

Trevor Tompson, Director of the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, and Matt Kozey, Principal Research Analyst in NORC’s Security, Energy, and Environment department,  will be speaking as a part of “The Nation: People, Polls, Politics and the Environment” on Saturday the 20th, at 9AM in Horizon Ballroom B. The panel will be discussing the political lines that divide voters on environmental issues.

Founded in 1990, SEJ is the world’s oldest and largest membership association of professional journalists, educators and students dedicated to more and better coverage of environmental issues. SEJ’s mission is to strengthen the quality, reach and viability of journalism across all media to advance public understanding of environmental issues.
