Amazeon raft was designed as a kind of spiritual, artistic and activist center with a multicultural mission:
''On the more general scale Amazeon is the gate to the ecosystem of the rainforest and all its layers, including the spiritual one. In this respect the project is not limited in any way; it includes all inhabitants (living entities) of this environment. At the some time, it should serve as a gathering place, as a place for meeting people from various parts of the world, who care salvation of this unique biosphere.''
