Climate Solutions Cohort

Most media coverage is making the challenge of solving climate change even harder by relentlessly delivering bad, often tragic climate-related news— without digging into solutions. That “negativity bias” directly fuels the demotivating emotions of despondence, helplessness, and apathy in readers. Journalists need to do better, and SJN can show them how.

In August 2022, we brought together 20 fellows from every corner of the U.S. and with a broad range of experience and diversity of voices for our first Climate Solutions Cohort. See the full roster here. The 60 stories that the fellows produced not only reached the original media outlet's audience, but also tens of thousands of rural and red state radio audience listeners through our partnership with the Public News Service.  And we've gathered some of the key learnings and insights and compiled them as Tips & Insights for Climate Solutions Practice. 

We just opened applications for the 2024 cohort of climate fellows.  Here's the application and here's a link to sign up for our information session on Tuesday, January 16th
