South Jersey Climate News is a collaborative journalism initiative that explores the effects of climate change on a local and regional level in southern New Jersey. Our staff is comprised of students from Rowan University.
Started in 2019, we cover environmental issues, events and initiatives on campus and in the southern region of New Jersey. We were part of a statewide climate reporting collaboration with members of the NJ College News Commons, a network of campus media outlets. We also have worked alongside editors of Route 40 to provide original reporting on Atlantic City.
The goal is to better inform the public about the challenges of climate change in our communities and to explore potential solutions and ways to adapt.
The project is supported by a grant from the New Jersey Civic Information Consortium and the the Ric Edelman College of Communication and Creative Arts at Rowan University.
