The site has received numerous publishing honors, including the National Magazine Award for Digital Media and an Online Journalism Award.
"Since its launch, Yale Environment 360
has continued to increase its global impact through its commitment to top-notch environmental journalism,” said Peter Crane, dean of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. “We are absolutely delighted that the important work being done by e360
will now reach an even wider international audience."
The new partnership is part of a larger collaboration between Yale University and Universia announced earlier this year
. In addition to republishing e360
content, Universia is working with Yale’s career offices to provide access to job fairs, career opportunities, and internships worldwide through a link to its Web platform, and is also providing translation services for the Open Yale Courses program.
“We cover global environmental issues,” said Yale Environment 360
editor Roger Cohn, “and with this new partnership with Universia, we will be able to reach millions of people throughout the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world.”
