"The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is holding a four-day reporting institute for reporters and editors worldwide who wish to deepen their knowledge of early childhood development and increase their capacity to report ethically and effectively on the youngest children and their caregivers. The reporting institute [...] will be held March 8-11, 2024 at Columbia Journalism School in New York City. The deadline for applications is October 25, 2023.
This four-day reporting institute is the latest program of the Early Childhood Journalism Initiative, launched by the Dart Center in 2017 to encourage science-informed, child-centered reporting that also examines the mental health and wellbeing of caregivers. Supported by the Bernard van Leer Foundation (The Netherlands), Fundação Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal (Brazil), and The Two Lilies Fund (United States), the initiative has provided over 200 journalists around the world with knowledge, skills and resources to incorporate emerging science and policy on early childhood development into their coverage."
