2013 VOF Week 1 - Voices of Amazon, Voices of the Forest!

Web 2.0 is the most important Century XXI communications tool. The most common site I use to access, post, find information and build network is the Facebook. Also am part of couple mail lists, where I post important events, take part in national and international discussions regarding Forestry, Local People Traditional Knowledge and Rights, Climate Change Risks, Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies, Sustainability, Governance. As I live and work in a very distant and isolated Brazilian State, which barely appears in the major media, and where internet access is limited. And considering that the world vision of Amazon region and people differs a lost of reality, I believe PulseWire can provide the opportunity of exchanging realities between woman in the tropical belt who share common interest in the mentioned subjects or just want to know more about my place (Amapá), personal experience as radio broadcaster dealing with forestry sector.

Web 2.0

Hello Ana, In reviewing where you live, I see that most of your Country is rain forest. You mentioned that receiving the Internet is spotty, which is understandable because of the interference of all your trees. Perhaps your radio broadcasts can reach your fellow countrywomen, where the Internet cannot. It must be hard to interact with folks who cannot receive the Internet signal. I am really concerned for you and wish there were some way to help you get to the other women in Amapa, so you could unite and form some common programs to benefit all women. I urge you to keep looking and trying to find some International Corporations who would be willing to build some towers or help spread the Internet in your County. By using Web 2.0 and involving yourself in World Pulse many opportunities may present themselves for you. Don't give up, but keep pushing forward, Ana. Blessings.
