We’re all young students attending the BA in Global Governance at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. We founded The Global Observer in 2017, with the intention of creating a platform where thoughts could stem from and be shared on.
Providing Food for thought
Our aim is not to give people the news. We do not want to be a source of information. We want to be a food for thought. We want to take a break from the chaos and just stop for a minute, to think. We want to give our perspective but we also want to challenge it.
A Transcultural Team
We all come from different countries and backgrounds; sharing our views does nothing but get us closer, shortening the cultural distance between us. We hope to build an online community that believes in debating and exchanging as ways of wearing down conflicts, rather than enhancing them.
A Fight for change
We don’t want to be passive observers. We are not here to whine. The analysis, reflection and exchange of ideas are the first steps towards an actual and effective change, that can take place in many different ways. After all, it’s the power of ideas and thoughts that has always been the world’s one and true leading fuel.
