The New Year is a time of new beginnings, and at Orion we’re kicking off our new year by announcing a new mission statement—one that we hope distills the service the magazine strives to provide and that captures the experience it aspires to create. This is the first revision to the mission statement in over a decade, and we welcome your thoughts about it in the comment section below.
Orion magazine invites readers into a community of caring for the planet. Through writing and art that explore the connection between nature and culture, Orion inspires new thinking about how humanity might live on Earth justly, sustainably, and joyously.
Many thanks for your support in 2013—we look forward to another year of presenting you with the best writing and visual art about nature and how we shape a better future.
