Evidence Based Media is a media production and research organization that translates cutting edge environmental science into action. We deploy customized media experiences that connect people to critical issues, engage them through communities, and empower them to affect change.
Our formula for a Broader Impact
We work directly with scientists and science-driven organizations to transform their research, reports and events into entertaining visual presentations based on the best evidence. Using documentary video and new media we design experiences that take scientific data beyond academic journals and into the realm of public discourse, targeting both lay audiences and policy-makers. Our use of multidisciplinary, interactive platforms helps foster new thinking, new norms, and new behaviors, and our social media campaigns are a cost-effective strategy to reach individuals where they are already engaged. See some of our models in the Our Services page.
The need for EBM now
The public has never been more in need of access to accurate, scientific information about the world around us, but there has also never been a time when we had more distractions and misinformation. And though scientific research can reveal local and global problems that require immediate action, it is often slow to be discovered by the public. Contradictory information is available everywhere. Many find themselves asking – how can I separate fact from fiction? Why should I care?
We work to foster an engaged citizenry by combining the best evidence available with compelling story-telling to bring complex scientific ideas down to earth.
