Webinar offered on green jobs debate

November 13, 2009

The Knight Center for Specialized Journalism is offering next week a Webinar on the green jobs debate.

The session will be on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST.

The workshop will include live audio and a slideshow presentation in which participants can post questions and respond to poll questions posed by the host.

You’ll learn to:

  • Define “green jobs” and find reliable information about those jobs;
  • Ask questions about green jobs that go beyond the numbers;
  • Report on policy initiatives that are driving the creation of green jobs;
  • Report on industries creating green jobs –- including some unexpected ones.

This Webinar is for anyone whose work touches on the topics of jobs and the economy, including:

  • City hall, local government and statehouse reporters who cover economic development and jobs;
  • Business reporters who cover current and prospective local companies;
  • Economics reporters who cover job-creation and general economic trends;
  • Tech reporters who cover start-ups and emerging technologies;
  • Columnists and editorial writers who deal with these topics.

Plus, you’ll discover a new online resource from the Knight Center for Specialized Journalism that will help you find information, locate experts and share ideas with other journalists on this topic.

The Webinar will be led by Marcy Lowe, a research associate at Duke University’s Center on Globalization, Governance & Competitiveness who studies the environmental impact of specific technologies and industries, with a particular eye toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The webinar costs $9.95, which includes unlimited replays. For more information, go here.
