About this talk

Today’s science, health, and environment stories are local, regional, and global. During a time when resources are short and travel restricted, major international media cannot send science reporters around the globe. Publishers and nonprofit journalism funders are building international teams of journalists and publishing their stories both locally and internationally. Science journalists in the Global South who have the skills and connections to join these teams now have new opportunities to do larger investigative projects and to better serve their own audiences and reach new ones. What sort of networking, tools, and training will be needed to expand this model to provide better science reporting throughout the Global South? Following the session on the Historias Sin Fronteras project, we will discuss other cross-border reporting ventures in Africa and South America and collect audience input to help chart a way forward.
