Possible Collaborative Opportunity for ISA Members

 

Orb Media is a nonprofit journalism organization that recognizes humanity as an inherently interdependent society knit together in need, experience, desire, and aspiration. Orb brings issues to the public that illuminate how the world is collectively faring, producing a new form of journalism using data journalism, social journalism, and on-the-ground reporting.


Because many ISA members' research overlaps frequently with Orb's eight core topics (food, water, energy, health, education, environment, trade, and governance), Orb would like to help connect ISA members as academic subject matter experts with the journalists looking to report on these global issues.


To get a better feel for the kind of reporting Orb produces, please check out their most recent publication Invisibles: The Plastic Inside Us. In the coming months, Orb hopes to connect with you around more specific topics such as global aging and rising sea levels.


Orb also has tools to help your research! If you are conducting surveys be sure to check out Veracio, a free online survey tool that automatically weights your survey results. Veracio compares your survey respondents to local census data. Each respondent’s answers are given more or less weight based on what proportion of the population they represent, minimizing inaccuracies. And all this happens with a simple click of a button! Learn more at veracio.org.


For general questions about Orb, please contact Nicole Davies, Communications Manager, at nicoled@orbmedia.org.  For how this might help ISA members, feel free to contact ISA HQ at isa@isanet.org.
