Wall of Rising Stars

At this time, we're asking you to honor the rising stars of environmental journalism by supporting SEJ's mission to strengthen the quality, reach and viability of journalism that advances public understanding of environmental issues. If there are early-career or student reporters in your network doing exemplary work, tell us using #SEJRisingStars. Make a contribution to SEJ in their name and we'll add them to our Wall of Rising Stars. And you'll both know that you're helping the reporters who tell the world's greatest stories.
