about the project
“Climate Change/Community Change/You Change” is a multimedia news project produced by students in the Environmental Reporting class at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This in-depth news project focuses on the potential impact of climate change on the local community through coverage of the evidence of early effects attributed to climate change, education of area students and the public about climate change, and efficient innovations to minimize the impact of climate change on local and regional ecosystems. Undergraduate student journalists completed this reporting project during the Spring 2013 semester. Reporting teams visited local farms, schools, universities and colleges, businesses, and research labs to conduct interviews with expert and community sources. The stories, photos, graphics, videos, and audio focus on some of the current implications of climate change and point to future individual and organizational actions that can be taken locally to better protect our natural resources and the environment.
