Our new Winter 2019/20 edition out soon!
See below new and recent articles you may have missed.
We will be soon moving into our 7th print/e-edition of Global Geneva
. But we have also been posting more diverse insight
stories relevant to “International Geneva” themes, particularly culture, science, climate change and conservation. We are also delighted to announce new media partnerships with the Rory Peck Trust
and Frontline Club
(including the Frontline Freelance Registry
) in London, both dedicated to promoting quality newsgathering world-wide. (See online cover story by Tira Shubert)
We also wish to stress our focus on reaching out to young people. (See latest youth articles by Nikita Artamonov on joining the Swiss army as a 'new' Swiss of expat background and a Breaking In piece by Amanda Norchi on interning in Switzerland).
We hope to expand Youth Writes
prompted by the exceptional interest in our 2019 Youth Writes Awards
. We are seeking volunteers – parents, teachers, concerned citizens – as well as sponsors to help develop this exceptional initiative by setting up Youth Writes Clubs
in schools both in Switzerland and abroad. Plus develop our journalism and writing workshops, including weekend writing camps. Two are planned for early 2020, one in Switzerland, the other in Thailand.
As one participant noted at last week’s World Economic Forum Cyber Security Conference in Geneva, unless we involve youth, “there is no future.” It is crucial that we help provide youth with a voice, particularly in the face of increasing false news, propaganda and disinformation, all of which represent a dire threat to democracy. This is where we see trusted journalism playing a critical role.
What's happening in the world of international Geneva that mainstream media are missing? Lots, we think. And with Global Geneva Special Reports
we aim to fill some of that gap. We have already posted links
to our Trade Forum
reports. Sign up for our free newsletter. For future special reports, you can donate as a supporter or purchase them specifically. Your donation will be used to cover costs. We hope you will find these more specialized articles worth signing up for. Please contact: The Editors
French & German editorial components
We have begun running some stories in French (later German). We would like to broaden this as part of our commitment to engage international Switzerland.
We still urgently need your support. We are now receiving numerous requests to cover specific issues, but quality journalism costs money. Our hope is to line up at least two years’ of funding so that we can plan - and commission - the sort of professional reporting that we feel is needed.
We are not begging. Rather we are asking everyone (companies, foundations, concerned readers) to CONTRIBUTE
. You can also help by advertising or sponsoring ads for NGOs and charities. Or supporting the complimentary distribution of print copies to international conferences, schools, UN agencies, NGOs, airport business lounges, museums, offices...The more diverse our support, the more editorially independent we can remain.
Our primary goal is trusted journalism in the public interest based on compelling writing and critical but solutions-oriented reporting. We wish to make such content as widely available as possible to all, no matter where in the world.
