The 2020 Media Impact Forum
With the health and safety of our network in mind, we have decided to revise our plans for our upcoming Media Impact Forum. We are converting what would normally have been our daylong funder gathering into six online discussions, which will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in June. Our sessions will focus on global reporting collaborations, environmental justice, the latest data in environmental media grantmaking, civic science, the relationship between health and the environment, and much more.

Grantmakers and the cultural organizations they fund are investing in audio and media across traditional broadcasting, podcasting, and on-site properties in order to foster greater context, reach, and conversation with constituencies.
