Vision

Credible and robust journalism that informs and engages society on environmental issues.

Mission

The mission of the Society of Environmental Journalists is to strengthen the quality, reach and viability of journalism across all media to advance public understanding of environmental issues.

SEJ provides critical support to journalists of all media in their efforts to cover complex issues of the environment responsibly. Through combined efforts of board, staff, members, and appropriate partners, SEJ offers unique educational programs and services for working journalists, educators, and students, including annual and regional conferences; daily EJToday news service; quarterly SEJournal; biweekly TipSheet and other publications; FOI WatchDog project; SEJ Awards for Reporting on the Environment; members-only listservs; mentoring program; website-based resources; and a lively membership network of journalists and academics.

SEJ also acts to raise awareness among philanthropists, editors, news managers, publishers, and other key decision-makers in the media on the value and importance of environmental news reporting.

Objectives

All programs and services of the Society of Environmental Journalists are designed by journalists to address the following objectives:

► to build a stronger and more closely connected network of educated environmental journalists and editors;

► to stimulate more and better coverage of a range of critically important environmental issues;

► to encourage addition or expansion of environmental reporting positions within broadcast, print, and internet news organizations;

► to increase use of information resources, training, and educational events that are already available to journalists and editors who may be covering the environment;

► and to foster the creation of important new information resources and training opportunities.

Are any SkS authors members of SEJ? Stephen Leahy?

Is the SEJ an international organization?

If he is not already a member, could John Cook become a member?

SkS is not among the sites listed on this resource page.

I recommend that John Cook make a pitch to the SEJ to include SKS on this page.

Should SkS follow suit create a similar, expanded directory?

If it's going to be similar, why not just point to this one?

I believe that the SEJ directory contians primarily North American climate scientists. I presume an SkS directory would include sicenists from throughout the wrold.
