PROJECTS

Silent Forest

A platform for visualizing data on the degradation of the Amazon Forest, based on a paper published in Nature. This was a partnership with the Sustainable Amazon Network (RAS) that relied on the support of InfoAmazonia.Org.

Atlantic Forest Infographics

The traditional non-stop deforestation of the Brazilian biome and the most recent data showed in infographic and unpublished maps developed in partnership with Café Art for NGO SOS Mata Atlântica.

Journalistic articles

Scientists are the authors and journalists are the editors – scientific articles and expert texts converted into concise, easy-to-read journalistic articles. The content is offered free of charge to the press.

Videos for social networks

Viral videos based on essential scientific works, such as this one on the condition of igarapés in the Amazon, in partnership with RAS.

Sustainable Amazon Policy Briefs

A series of five summaries for decision makers and opinion makers, based on RAS’s scientific works: Igarapés, Fires, Forests, Legislation and Landscapes.

Sustainable Amazon Symposium

We worked on the development of materials for consultation and dissemination, as well as offering support in the organization of this RAS event, which brought together decision makers and opinion makers in Belém.

Costing Nature

By applying a deforestation model based on historical rates, scientists came to a conclusion: Life in Amazonia will not survive more than two centuries. An InfoAmazonia project, with support from Ambiental team.

Extreme Climate

Climate change manifests itself in Amazonia in extremes that are difficult to predict and that challenge the traditional knowledge of fishermen. A multimedia report in partnership with InfoAmazonia, funded by EJN.

SO, THEY SAY

“A new frontier in science journalism. Entrepreneurship and passion for transcending the barriers of scientific communication are hallmarks of the initiative. Ambiental has been an indispensable partner, promoting vital connections between our work and some of the best journalists and communicators in Brazil."

Toby Gardner

"A great initiative to foster environmental and scientific journalism in Brazil"

Emilio M. Bruna
Professor, Department of Tropical Conservation, University of Florida

"Ambiental Media offers a valuable service, with potential to benefit not only scientists - whose work deserves to reach a growing audience - but also the news consumer. Often removed by technical barriers, this reader can now discover a new and attractive path to the wonderful world of scientific discovery."

Jeremy Caplan
Director of Education at the Tow-Knight Center for Journalism Entrepreneur, City University of New York (Cuny)

"At a time when climate denial, scientific illiteracy and ‘alternative facts’ seem to be rampant, the existence of organizations that devote all their efforts to disseminate scientific information is more crucial than ever. Ambiental is one of them. It's scientific journalism at its best."

Alberto Cairo
Director of the Visualization Program at the Center for Computational Sciences of the University of Miami
