Mediaplanet is an independent publishing company where we partner with major newspapers to distribute focused sections for distribution within these newspapers, on a given industry in order to promote awareness and inspire activism.

In honor of The Year of Chemistry, Mediaplanet will be publishing an 8-16 page section titled “The Business of Chemistry” to be distributed within the Washington Post newspaper in Washington, DC on March 18th. We would like to include the IYC 2011 logo along with a statement that will read “Mediaplanet is proud to support IYC”.

Through this publication we aim to include educational editorial that will highlight the benefits of chemistry in everyday life, and the innovative ways in which the industry addresses the health and well-being of humanity. We aim to inspire consumers to recognize the numerous ways chemistry is involved in their daily lives, and to approach daily activities and decisions with this information in mind. “The Business of Chemistry” is being published with the goal of increasing interest and involvement in the industry among consumers and promoting education among today’s youth who will one day lead this industry, therefore generating enthusiasm for the future of chemistry.

Mediaplanet would like to extend an invitation for industry leaders to join us in this effort. We have editorial opportunities available, as well as opportunities for brands to align themselves with this effort through a sponsorship opportunity, in order to create a collective voice for the industry.
