A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT OF THE AMAZON XOCIETY & THEMISCYRA & NOVA AMAZONIA
The Amazon Xociety has a reputation for producing strong innovative and dynamic programs geared towards the practical empowerment of women. After having done radio for a year, a webzine was a natural next step for us (and other exciting media projects are in the works). We are joined in this project by our primary collaborative partners of Themiscyra and Nova Amazonia.
OBJECTIVE: To offer a project that helps to build a global Amazon community.
