COVID-19 has disrupted our lives in countless ways, including forcing SEJ to postpone our annual conference for the first time in 30 years.
While we’ve moved the in-person conference in Boise to June 2-6, 2021 (#SEJ2021), our 2020 Virtual Conference (#SEJ2020), September 16, 17, 23 and 30, convened the SEJ community to investigate environmental angles on the 2020 elections and other timely events, celebrated the winners of the SEJ Awards for Reporting on the Environment, and previewed workshops, tours and panels coming in June.
It’s critically important to SEJ to gather evidence on the impact of our work. So we’re tracking stories inspired by or informed by our virtual conference in September 2020. The stories don’t have to be about a particular virtual session; they can be based on sources or ideas you got from being at the conference, meet-ups, networking, etc. Please help us to keep SEJ strong and share links, photos, copies of reporting generated or informed by this conference. It’s never too late! Send your story links to Cindy MacDonald, SEJ’s Web content manager.
Note: If you pre-registered for tours and workshops, we will reconfirm your commitment and apply your selections to the #SEJ2021 In-Person Conference registration once it opens in the new year.
Idaho bridges more than the continental divide: A red state with a streak of bright purple, Idaho banks on tech, recreation and agriculture. Its history of logging, ranching and mining has left a complicated legacy on its awe-inspiring landscape. In Boise, America’s fastest growing city, you can ski and golf on the same winter day. But the challenges and opportunities facing state and tribal governments are familiar: urban sprawl, limited resources, energy sources and conserving the wild for future generations.
