Convention Dates: April 3-7, 2024

Welcome to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love which is known for a rich history with iconic landmarks, vibrant culture, and diverse neighborhoods, the city has something for everyone. We pulled together our top recommendations to plan activities and dining during your stay. Historic sites, quaint shopping districts, vibrant nightlife and more – from day to night, there’s always something to see or do in Philadelphia.

The public is informed on and engaged in environmental issues thanks to coverage by journalists who are inspired, supported and connected through participation in the Society of Environmental Journalists.

The mission of the Society of Environmental Journalists is to strengthen the quality, reach and viability of journalism that advances public understanding of environmental issues.

SEJ provides critical support to journalists of all media in their efforts to cover complex issues of the environment responsibly. SEJ addresses its mission and vision through effective programs designed by and for journalists who produce environmental coverage. Benefits and opportunities of programs and membership will be extended to journalists on varied beats, to students and all those who will be expanding and defining the field in years to come. SEJ is constantly developing new initiatives to:

  • educate on emerging issues and beat basics;
  • protect freedom of information on environment-related issues;
  • build bridges between scientists and journalists;
  • foster peer communication and networks of credible sources;
  • provide recognition of excellence and support for media projects; and
  • provide vision and leadership for the field through creative projects and strategic partnerships.
