Global21 is a network of student-run international-affairs magazines at premier universities around the world. The organization was jumpstarted in 2005 with a $50,000 grant from the Yale Entrepreneurial Society. Global21 is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with chapters at fifteen universities around the world including Yale University, University of Oxford, University of Cape Town, Peking University, University of Sydney, the London School of Economics and Political Science, Singapore Management University, and University of Zurich among others.
Global21’s network is a practical tool for creating dialogue that promotes greater international cooperation and understanding among university students around the world. Through article exchanges, joint issues, an international blog, and continental conferences, Global21 helps high-achieving students hone the skills necessary to excel in fields of journalism, business, non-profit, and government work, with the hope that they will graduate from their university with the drive and ability to tackle global issues themselves.
Global21 creates a number of forums for international student dialogue including annual continental conferences, joint issues, article exchanges, and our blog that compiles articles from across the network, The Perspectivist.
