In an effort to dismantle the silos and bubbles that plague society’s civil and political discourse, The Global Communiqué, a digital current affairs magazine, aims to provide compelling content, in the form of interviews with those at the grassroots level and interviews with prominent figures.
The Global Communiqué combines a bottom-up approach as well as a top-down approach to telling stories that significantly impact social and economic development at the local, regional and international level.
The Global Communiqué aims to be a conversation starter on issues that require deep conversations, reflection, and policy attention at both the domestic and international level with the aim of using the ‘power of a pen’ and the media platform to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Global Communiqué seeks to ensure that as we journey towards achieving the 2030 Agenda that no one, and indeed no perspective, is left behind.
