Journalism • Science • Innovation
AMBIENTAL transforms scientific content into innovative, attractive and accessible Journalism. We work to disseminate Science to a general audience and to strengthen a sense of community among media professionals and members of the Academy. We offer media tools and communication solutions for organizations, universities, institutes and research networks.
We believe in the importance of Journalism to communicate the most urgent issues addressed by Science. We seek to fund our projects through partnerships in alignment with our values and do not aim for profit: Any surplus is used in to create relevant content.
These are some of the services we provide to our partners:
Data visualization, multimedia reports, studies and analysis, interactive maps, charts, infographics and illustrations, social media videos, articles (written by scientists, edited by journalists), art and design edition, ebooks.
Policy Briefs, web design, visual presentations, videos, infographics and illustrations, support for event organization (lectures, symposiums, conferences), translation, social media management, media interface, visual identity, multimedia storytelling.
Scientists are authors, journalists are editors: Concise and compelling texts, four-handed created from scientific papers or inspired by researcher’s field experience. Ambiental Media articles were replicated by mainstream media outlets worldwide, and shared by thousands on social media.
Maps, illustrations and charts: Data visualizations created from scientific data bases to make knowledge compelling and accessible. Ideal for social media, journalistic pieces, technical reports.
