Geo​Media 

GeoMedia is your partner for project development, strategic communication and capacity development. Our core competence lies in the field of environment and in supporting international co-operation processes from the global to the local level. Our business is to help governments, communities, academia and the private sector run their businesses sustainably. Together.

What we do

We create synergies for sustainable development

GeoMedia offers expert advice on global environmental protection, sustainable development and international cooperation. In implementation, we foster collaboration processes among state, private sector and civil society actors at local, national and international level, and support programme and financial planning. We conceptualise and organise multi-stakeholder processes and dialogues, support equitable value chain development, manage virtual platforms, and develop communication strategies. In complement to this and more we offer a wide array of media products – from simple flyers to complex films.

Topics

Biodiversity is particularly close to our hearts. We are familiar with all related international agreements and connected to the relevant institutions. We know the processes and the substance, from negotiations to implementation. See examples …

ABS has been in our focus since 2005. We support relevant bodies and stakeholders at all levels in creating ABS systems and partnerships, developing ABS-compliant research and value chains, and realising global dialogues on DSI. See examples …

Communication, education and public awareness (CEPA) are cornerstones of our company. Over the years we’ve become ever more sophisticated. From flyers and posters we’ve come to global  multistakeholder events – and everything in between to communicate complex issues. See examples …
