Ensia is an independent, nonprofit magazine presenting new perspectives on environmental challenges and solutions to a global audience. We cover a broad spectrum of issues and ideas at the crossroads of different sectors, disciplines, ideologies and geographies. Our mission is to share stories and ignite conversations that motivate and empower people to create a more sustainable future. Ensia is published with support from the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, major foundations and private individuals. In 2017 we became a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News — a collective of over 100 nonprofit newsrooms dedicated to serving the public interest.
