The Pulitzer Center brought more than 100 journalists from around the world to strategize and collaborate on climate crisis reporting in Washington, D.C., on June 9 and 10.

Interconnected: Reporting the Climate Crisis, the Center’s annual conference held virtually and in-person, featured discussions focused on our rapidly changing planet. The conference sessions are now available to view on the Center's YouTube playlist.

The conference was held at the National Press Club and covered numerous angles of the climate crisis — from the role of women fighting for climate justice, to climate change’s impact on the workplace, to deforestation in the Amazon, among other important topics. Moderators and featured speakers included Pulitzer Center staff and the organization’s award-winning grantees.

Conversations focused on people and communities threatened by climate issues. Panels discussed unique challenges when reporting in specific regions, from the Arctic Circle to rainforests. Speakers showcased reporting that made use of artificial intelligence and satellite imagery, as well as emphasized the importance of collaboration when tackling big stories.

Education and outreach also took center stage as the Pulitzer Center announced a new initiative during the Day 1 plenary: the International Education and Outreach Program, aimed at taking the Center's rainforest journalism to the broadest possible audience. Pulitzer Center K-12 staff members were featured in conversations about bringing climate issues into the classroom.
