A first-of-its kind workshop to create and strengthen cross-border exchanges for journalists reporting on science, environment, agriculture, health, and other issues in which the U.S. and Latin America have a shared link and vital stake.
The Institute of the Americas and the National Association of Science Writers will present an interactive workshop for journalists and editors from both sides of the border who cover scientific research and science-based economic news.
Panelists will discuss resources of identifying and reporting, markets on both sides of the border, cyber security and new reporters’ tools.
The keynote speaker is Exequiel Ezcurra, Ph.D., director of the University of California Institute for Mexico and the United States (UC MEXUS), an academic research institute dedicated to encouraging, securing, and contributing to binational and Latino research and collaborative academic programs and exchanges. Dr. Ezcurra is a renowned scientist on the desert ecology of the US-Mexico border and the former research director of the San Diego Natural History Museum.
