BESIDE Magazine Issue 8 is available on loremnotipsum.com. BESIDE Magazine Issue 8 is here. In Issue 08, BESIDE highlights the communities we belong to and that make us—individually and collectively—more resilient. Communities are emerging all around us. They are the chosen families that sustain us. They are our neighbours who share their tools, our friends who share their recipes, our elders who share their knowledge and advice. They are the farmers within and outside our cities who feed us. They are the people with whom we face the most pressing environmental and social issues of our time. Following the model of plants and animals that collaborate in the wild, we are learning new creative, ecological, and inclusive ways of coexisting.
BESIDE Magazine is a publication from abitibi & co., a Canadian canoe and kayak company. The magazine was funded on Kickstarter. abitibi & co. designs and handcrafts boats that are meant to be used, repaired, and passed down to future generations. With this, their goals are to get more people outdoors, to bring more people together, and to lessen the impact they make on our global habitat. Spending more time outdoors allows us to see, hear, and feel how the wilderness is changing, and gives us a front-row seat to the fragility of our ecosystem. This is a relationship: the more we get to know our natural surroundings, the less willing we’ll be to let them slip away. And so Beside was born: To serve as a stage showcasing the innovative curiosity, the responsible resourcefulness, and the adventurous triumphs of a new community of outdoor enthusiasts who are redefining the scope of this relationship. With their roots planted in the largely French-speaking province of Quebec, Canada, they very much understand the importance of balancing nature with culture and staying true to the heritage of our readership.
