Agenda for SEJ's 24th Annual Conference



Agenda Coverage Lodging/ Travel Advertise/ Exhibit Environmental News About New Orleans


"Risk and Resilience" is SEJ's theme for a packed series of events for this conference. New Orleans and south Louisiana are the poster children for both risk and resilience in the 21st Century. Yet, New Orleans is also a place where we can eat, drink, dance, listen to music and generally partake of the whole spectrum of humanities' offerings, and all this with the climate change monster right outside the door. You will leave this conference motivated, empowered and well-connected with story leads, political context, new insights, contacts, research data, experiences and enhanced skills for effective storytelling on relevant issues.
