After 19 issues in print, environment: Yale magazine debuts today in a new, exclusively digital format that will reach our readers wherever they may be. Its new home is located at http://environment.yale.edu/envy/. The magazine’s first installment features stories on F&ES’ growing presence in Asia through the Himalaya Initiative, the popularity of combining religious and environmental studies, F&ES’ partnership with the National University of Singapore and Sebastien Jodoin who received the prestigious Trudeau Scholarship. In addition, four videos feature faculty discussing basic ecological concepts as part of an Environment: 101 series.
The plan is to introduce a small package of stories every month on global and national environmental issues connected to faculty, student and alumni research and activities at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental
Studies and on environmental research being conducted in other Yale departments.
If you fill out the short form in the About section, you’ll be notified electronically of breaking news once a month. The new format, designed by web manager Matt Garrett, will be accessible on mobile devices and will enable you to easily share content with friends and colleagues via email and on Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter and other social media sites. At the same time, the new platform honors the school’s core values to consume less resources and to minimize the production’s carbon footprint.
We hope you like the new digital environment: Yale and that you tell your friends about it. We’d also like to hear your reaction and your ideas.
