The mission of the Institutes for Journalism & Natural Resources (IJNR) is to advance public understanding and civic engagement about issues of environment protection, resource conservation and responsible economic development through better journalism.
IJNR conducts expedition-style programs of training and professional development for journalists at all career stages and from all sorts and sizes of news outlets—ranging from newspapers and magazines to radio, television and online operations.
To supplement and reinforce its field-based training programs, IJNR provides year-round coaching and mentoring for journalists, along with constant access to web-based tools designed to support their ongoing work. Over time, the increased accuracy, depth and perspective in news coverage generated by these journalists help to promote greater public awareness, better-informed civic discourse, expanded citizen engagement, and more responsible decision-making.
