2A has been involved with various activities and organizations throughout the past 17 years. Each and every one of these activities were meant to improve the quality of lives for all of humanity.
However, these activities and organizations have acted in a separate manner and in a somehow decentralized fashion.
In order to be more effective and efficient, 2A Magazine brings all the 2As’ activities under one umbrella.
This 2A Magazine’s goal is to improve standard of living, by raising awareness about environment, sustainable development, well- balanced living, sharing and suggesting creative & innovative ideas and methods for multidimensional growth and progress, respecting and taking in to consideration various cultures, costumes, religions, ethnic and social beliefs, and covering many other aspects of social life.
In order to achieve this goal, the activity plans to act in a more coordinated manner while organizing its future International events, by presenting all these activities together, side by side.
In doing so, the participants of various groups of activities can easily interact together and share their creative & innovative ideas and projects in their related profession.
And collectively they can come up with a more holistic vision and strategy which would cover all the essential dimensions needed to achieve a well- balanced and progressive way of living for humans , by helping them to put to practice the learned lessons, knowledge and strategies which lead them to respect the environment, takes in to consideration and promotes respect and caring for their fellow human beings, regardless of their ethnic, cultural , social, religious and economic backgrounds.
2A Magazine intends to establish a polyphonic relationship with the professional, international audience and should therefore focus on structures that make this relationship possible with-in its most comprehensive form.
Today, despite major achievements in communication media, our world is greatly in need of interrelated dialogue,which can decrease notions of negligence and hostility.

Moreover, the diversity of works and articles presented in 2A Magazine clearly reflect the concept we follow.
