Clayton Aldern 2020-2021 RJI fellowship project
Clayton Aldern is a data strategist at Grist, headquartered in Seattle, Washington. He will create materials for newsrooms to guide them in covering climate issues through a data lens. These materials will include adaptable software templates and start-up guides for non-technical staff interested in exploring the possibilities of climate data journalism. Aldern will also begin to compile a newsroom-facing national climate database accessible to journalists for coverage of environmental stories.
