December 22, 2016 — Do you think the world needs more high-quality, trustworthy environmental reporting? Stories that bridge partisan divides and move beyond problems to explore solutions? And guidance for tomorrow’s environmental communicators?
If you answered yes to these questions, then we need your help today!
Your tax-deductible contribution to Ensia supports coverage of important and often underreported topics, allows us to share our solutions-focused stories with other media outlets — and millions of readers — around the world, and helps build a bright future for environmental journalism through our signature mentor program.
Here’s a sample of what past donors have gotten in return for their investment in Ensia:
- The writer of an Ensia story on how federal crop insurance can negatively impact sustainable agriculture was invited to speak to U.S. Senate staffers working on the 2017 Farm Bill.
- Our piece on desalination as a pathway to peace in the Middle East was republished by Scientific American and dozens of other outlets, reaching nearly 500,000 readers, and sparked an op-ed in a major publication in India calling for similar efforts there.
- Ensia was one of the first publications to explore how CRISPR technology could revolutionize global food production — with a commentary that is now being used as background reading in college classes around the United States.
If you think we could use more of this type of high-quality, in-depth journalism in 2017, then please show your support today.
As a special gift to those who donate at least $100 by Dec. 31, 2016, we’ll send a limited-edition copy of our beautiful new “Best of the Year | Year Ahead” print issue.
