Two Global Stories To Change The World


I often see great global stories as I research my own stories and information for client projects. So today I decided to share two global stories that struck a chord with me, with you.

By sharing these great global stories I am helping to promote them organically – which means I haven’t been paid to promote these articles. I genuinely think they are interesting, and I hope you to do. (header image from dw.com)
