Know the facts. Understand the issues. Participate in the solutions.

THIS SITE IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED.  INSTEAD, CATE AND WORLD SAVVY HAVE CREATED A CLASS ON THE MATERIAL HERE FOR THE GLOBAL COMPETENCE CERTIFICATE (GCC). 

Please visit the GCC site for information on the program and the Global Poverty class.

In the spirit of lifelong education for global citizenship…

Get the context and background you need to consume news about poverty, aid, and development from a well-informed place. Be able to talk intelligently with your friends, co-workers, and children. Go to that cocktail party armed with what you need to join the conversation. Learn more about individuals and organizations working to address the issues. Engage in the complexity of the topic without feeling intimidated, pessimistic, or guilty.

We unpack the concepts, bring you the debates, show you what all sides think. We translate and demystify the research and the big ideas. We filter, synthesize, and digest what lots of smart people are saying – from academia to corporate social innovators, to NGOs, policymakers, and experts of many stripes. And link you to resources of all kinds – for more information, opportunities for action, and just interesting stuff.

There is hardly a global concern today that doesn’t touch on poverty and development in some way – it’s not just about economics. It’s about politics, culture, society, security. It’s about people, and connections between people. Go beyond the sound bites to embrace the nuances and layers of this critical subject.
