Pulitzer_Center_175The Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting is an award-winning nonprofit journalism organization committed to supporting in-depth engagement with “under-reported” global issues. The Center, founded in 2006 by former St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter and Washington, D.C. bureau chief Jon Sawyer, now supports nearly 150 journalists per year through grants aimed at strengthening, print, online, and broadcast reporting. Its annual direct support to journalists exceeds $1.5 million. The Center also conducts an extensive program of outreach and education to schools and universities. The Pulitzer Center describes its activities as being “in keeping with the deep ties to the family whose name for more than a century has been a watchword for journalistic independence, integrity, and courage.”


Skeptical Science logoFounded in 2007 in Brisbane, Australia, by John Cook, PhD, Skeptical Science is a non-profit science education website, run by a global team of volunteers. Translated in to more than two-dozen languages, the website provides debunkings of over 190 of the most common myths about climate change, making peer-reviewed scientific research accessible to the general public. The Skeptical Science team has also worked on a range of projects, such as The Consensus Project finding 97 percent agreement among scientists on climate research, and the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Denial101x, which has received more than 40,000 enrolments from individuals in 160 countries.
