This fall, up to 15 journalists will gather in New York City for six days of study and discussion as part of the new Resilience Journalism Fellowship at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
The program, scheduled for Oct. 22-27, will focus on the science of climate change and resilience — defined as a system’s capacity to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic function and structure.
Our Fellows won’t just spend the week sitting in a classroom. We’ll be kayaking in Jamaica Bay, riding bicycles on city streets, and searching across New York for solutions to some of the world’s most difficult environmental problems.
The Fellowship grant covers lodging, tuition and reasonable travel costs, along with most meals.
Fellows will be required to complete readings before arriving in New York and will be expected to be active participants in all discussions during the program.
Financial support for the Resilience Fellowship program is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.
