Ensia is a solutions-focused nonprofit media outlet reporting on our changing planet.
Since launching in 2013, Ensia has published nearly 500 original feature stories, articles, commentaries and multimedia pieces with content appearing in more than a dozen languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese and Bengali.
Ensia has cultivated a network of more than 50 leading global media outlets — including The Guardian, Business Insider, Scientific American, Public Radio International, Vox and Quartz — that republish content, thus increasing Ensia’s reach and impact.
All told, Ensia stories influence millions of people annually and have been promoted by thought leaders across sectors, shared during legislative briefings, included in college courses and cited in publications around the world.
In addition, nearly three dozen emerging communicators have been paired with experienced journalists to learn the tools of the trade and produce content through the Ensia Mentor Program — some of whom have gone on to land reporting roles at other publications, communications positions at nonprofits and expanded freelance careers.
Ensia has received dozens of journalism awards. Most recently, the publication’s feature story on climate change “hot spots” was named a finalist in the 2018 Online Journalism Awards.
Ensia is powered by the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment and is a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News — a nationwide network of nonprofit newsrooms serving the public good — and the Solutions Journalism Network.
