Research & Insights

We began the Research & Insights program in order to share the latest and most impactful insights from the invaluable research we are seeing across kids and family industries. We believe that by staying informed about the latest findings it will enable us to develop the most meaningful and impactful media for kids and families.


This report compiles the latest research on the climate crisis, how it impacts our children, and how we as media professionals can do better. Our goal in spotlighting these insights is to inspire our industry to not only create eco-conscious media, but implement sustainable practices in our work.
