The central part on which this whole project revolves is the journal. In each volume we go on a trip to a different region of the planet and where together, we explore issues that affect us globally such as cultural preservation, sustainable tourism, nature protection or climate change, but also personal stories with which we feel identified and that invite us to reflect.
The Jungle Journal’s main goal is to invite readers to reflect and raise awareness. Knowing that we live in an increasingly divided world, we want to generate unity by telling stories and sharing information always from the heart.
In our second volume featuring East Africa we will travel to countries like Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
We’ll bring readers an important message from a Maasai chief, discover a female led organization empowering local women in the Bwindi Forest, learn more about the South Asian diaspora into this region through a special interview, analyze the impacts of droughts on local populations and we will investigate the controversy around the conservation of an endangered species: the mountain gorilla.
In this first issue featuring Latin America we bring you to Peru, Brazil, Mexico, and Cuba.
We’ll be learning about the coming of age of a Venezuelan Refugee in Peru, a brief history of Mesoamerica, the Lacandon Jungle in Southern Mexico, the archaic revival of weaving and textiles in Peru, one man’s journey to reclaiming his Quechua culture, a plant medicine discussion with a Peruvian Shaman, cosmovisions from Latin America, food recipes, deforestation and Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, tobacco production in Cuba, interviews, and personal reflections.
