Global Voices

Sustainable development, right here, right now!

"Sustainable development is like teenage sex - everybody claims they are doing it but most people aren’t, and those that are, are doing it very badly"

— Professor Chris J Spray

Global Voices focus is on Sustainable development this time. We all hear about, we talk about but how much we know about it?

Inspired from The Gothenburg Award on Sustainable Development (GASD) we thought to make our contribution and bring this concept one more time in the minds of our listeners. Apart our insightful Vox Pop, you have the chance to listen an interesting interview with the winner of this year's award, Dr.Micheal Biddle.

Ermelinda Kanushi, Hanna Katarina Nyroos

Global Voices look back at the events of 2012 tonight at 9pm on K103

The world is falling apart this weekend, according to the Maya Calendar. But we're not gonna talk about that.
Instead, since the year is ending, whether falling apart or not, we'll take a look at some of the global events of 2012. Some go for Christmas, some go for Santa Lucia, and some for Hannukkah, while we at Global Voices just go back in time.
Global Voices' team went into the field to ask students in Gothenburg on their opinion about the year that we are leaving behind. What has happened worldwide this year? Can we say that 2012 has been a continuation of 2011, or a beginning of something new?
In the show, we also highlight some of the more forgotten events of the past year.
Listen to our show tonight to remember what you forgot and to learn about what you missed.

Hosts: Anna Reumert and Ermelinda Kanushi
Voxpop interviews: Senka Purkovic and Patrik Wendeblad

Students & politics in the US

Global Voices are back! Tonight we focus on students' role in American politics from two angles; the Democrats' and Republicans' take on higher education, and young voters' participation in the recent US Presidential election. In connection, we have interviewed Benjamin Gerber, representative of Democrats Abroad, and Thomas Van Hare, representative of Republicans Abroad on these issues.

Global Voices är programmet för dig som är intresserad av det som händer i världen. Vi tar upp utrikespolitiska ämnen och blandar stort som smått. Tycker du att Sverige är för litet, då är Global Voices något för dig! Programmet görs i samarbete med Utrikespolitiska föreningen (Göteborg)s medlemstidning Utblick.
Vi diskuterar ämnen som relaterar till utrikespolitiska frågor och inkluderar såväl lokala som globala röster. Vårt syfte är att bidra till en ökad förståelse för världen omkring oss.

Are you interested in what's happening around the world? Global Voices raises different topics within foreign politics. We bring up big and small topics. If you think Sweden's too small, then Global Voices is the programme for you! The programme is cooperating with Utrikespolitiska föreningen (Göteborg)'s magazine Utblick. We discuss topics related to global affairs and incorporate voices, local and global, to broaden our view of the world surrounding us.
