The Our World web magazine shares expert views, research and commentary on contemporary affairs of relevance to the mandate of the United Nations. This award-winning web magazine, brought to you by the United Nations University (UNU), exchanges these insights through video briefs, articles, debates, photo essays and public events.
Our World was first launched in July 2008 primarily as an environmental magazine focused on solutions to global challenges of climate change, energy, food security, and biodiversity loss. Though it no longer does, Our World’s name originally included “2.0″ at the end of it because it was launched at a time when the internet was transforming into something known as Web 2.0. We too wanted to harness the new power of online sharing, co-creation, and emerging social media to entice readers to help us find sign posts to an improved version of the world. Source
