The Pulitzer Center is glad to announce Connected Coastlines, a collaborative reporting initiative on climate science in U.S. coastal states. Supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education. The effort will build a consortium of independent newsrooms. Also, journalists to document the untold or unappreciated ways in which climate change is affecting coastal populations. This reporting initiative aims to increase awareness in local communities that are already navigating changing weather, flooding, and temperature patterns due to climate change.
The most successful projects are those in which news outlets match the commitment. Further, by adding interactive or multimedia elements to enhance and showcase their original reporting.
