The all-volunteer international nonprofit Parvati Foundation is dedicated to supporting a healthy world by remembering our interconnection. Our primary focus is the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS), a 360-degree initiative to awaken interconnection globally in order to protect all life on Earth. By transforming the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle into a marine protected area, we can safeguard our homes, food and water supplies, global immunity, economic balance, social stability, and world peace.  

The official publication of MAPS, Parvati Magazine showcases global new thought leaders in arts, wellness, business and ecology. Our international readers are passionate changemakers, hungry for clarity and substance in their lives. They believe in a better world and inspire others for the same.

You are required to meet monthly submission deadlines by generating story ideas, pitching them for approval, contacting approved interview subjects, securing responses and preparing the final articles. In return we will provide ongoing editing to learn from, and an opportunity to serve all life in a most exciting way!

We also have opportunities for experienced line and copy editors and proofreaders to work with the Managing Editor to review submitted articles, ensuring they are ready to go to print at the required standard, in brand.
