The New Communicators
Society of Environmental Journalists Annual Conference (Miami, FL)
Wednesday, October 20th, 2011
9:00 – 10:30 p.m.
As society’s media landscape continues its dramatic diffusion, environmental journalists find themselves in a very crowded field of communicators of environmental information. Non-journalists who have a great deal of passion for environmental issues now have extraordinary access to consumers of information. These “new communicators” include artists, philanthropists, scientists, filmmakers, and more. But what happens to journalism’s dedication to accuracy and impartiality? We have assembled a most incredible panel of these new communicators to show us what they’re telling the world, and how they’re telling it.
Xavier Cortada, Artist
Fabien Cousteau, Plant A Fish
Guy Harvey, Marine Artist and Philanthropist (invited)
