Unearthed: How Investigative Journalism Can Change the Environmental Landscape in Latin America

This unique program will bring together environmental journalists from throughout Latin America for an intensive professional development workshop focusing on climate change, cross-border air and water safety issues, preserving biodiversity, and the impact of deforestation on the Western Hemisphere.

A key session during the program will be a visit to a biological reserve to meet with farmers who are attempting to abandon the centuries-old practice of deforestation and rely on ecoturismo for their income. Journalists will discuss with farmers the economic and environmental results of this program to rescue critical areas of the jungle from destruction.
