Dear Ecomedia Community:

Dear ASLE Member,


My name is Jennifer Irish, and I am the Program Assistant for the study abroad program titled Learning and Service Journey into Amazonia at Florida State University. Dr. Juan Carlos Galeano, a fellow member of ASLE, is the Program Director, and we both feel that this program will be of interest to you and your students.


Journey into Amazonia is a Service Learning Program in the Peruvian Amazon that takes place annually during the month of July. By using interdisciplinary perspectives from cultural anthropology, spiritual ecology, and environmental studies, as well as internships and/or research experience in Amazonian communities, students of this program can gain deeper understanding about landscape, cultural systems of Amazonia, philosophy of life and history of native groups, colonists and farmers. A photographic essay created by a former participant last summer can be viewed at:

The official program website is: and more detailed information on the program, including assessments from previous participants, can be found on Dr. Galeano’s website in the section Journey into Amazonia.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact myself or Dr. Galeano at
We hope that you are having a great semester!
