I was exactly twelve years old
when my best friend Robin and I developed a magazine that informed
people about the beauty of nature. We created a format that updated
our readers on the latest news regarding environmental technologies
and mainstream personalities. We presented feature stories on
animals, plants, regions and countries, included cross words puzzles,
eco riddles and short stories. Our first subscribers were members
from our family, then the classroom friends became interested
and finally the teachers got involved.
Twenty years after having developed
the first one, it is with great enthusiasm that I am announcing
the launch of a second magazine. In a way it is not just a new
media product, it is part of a concept that discloses news on
the innovators of our time and that introduces multicultural lifestyle
topics for a sustainable citizenry.
"Styling the New World"
is a natural evolution. It is the new branch that has grown out
of the lifestyle tv show "our planet". The seed
for this got planted while traveling the four corners of our globe
which made me discover the beauty that lies in everything and
everyone. The passion for community and environment found a different
format compared to the one that I developed when I was twelve.
The pencil became a camera, the printed pages became people and
the audience was not a local high school but a cosmopolitan city.
The show aired sustainable lifestyle stories that showed fashion
designers who recycled previous collections into new pieces, culinary
chefs who taught at vegetarian cooking schools, environmental
ministers who bicycled around the UN buildings, American GI's
who liberated China and turned into Silk kimono collector.
"Our planet" became a lifestyle concept with its
own web site www.pamelapeeters.com. Thirty countries followed
its pulse and the international press showed interest.
After three years, the show still
airs in Manhattan on Time Warner Cable and is developed in collaboration
with people who make the hearts of other people grow bigger and
beat quicker. Its opening statement is to "celebrate life,
every single moment" and its audience is catered to stories
about conscious people who style our planet with sustainable creations.
"Styling the New World"
will focus on the positive news that surrounds us. It will invite
you to become a member of an international family that is engaged
and that cares about the other parts of the globe. So let's welcome
a new magazine that grew out of the fertile seeds from a local
Manhattan tv show and that blossomed thanks to its worldwide audience.
It will further develop thanks to your attention, letters and
Have a great world, in great style
and together, we'll style the new world
