Thinking global, living local: Voices in a globalized world

What’s hot in…?

The Future Challenges blogger network spans the whole world. Our bloggers can provide an on-the-ground perspective on important developments and events in their regions. Future Challenges’ bloggers usually write about Global Issues based on the theme of Globalization. These posts usually aren’t breaking news, but they provide a local view on topics that are of utmost importance for their countries and regions.
