Balanced news in divided times
In an age of information overload, The World Weekly brings you a weekly briefing on the state of humanity. In one hour, you’ll be up-to-speed on the most significant events, trends and ideas shaping our world, from politics to business to the latest tech breakthroughs.
In divided times, we aim to be hyper-balanced. Our driving principle is that citizens of an interconnected world need to get outside their bubble and understand the events shaping their lives from different perspectives.
No matter what side you are on, we aspire always to bring you the most reliable facts and relevant points of view as well as analysis from some of the world’s leading experts in each field. We try to remain a-national and a-political, and firmly believe that it is not our place to influence your opinions. We are simply here to inform them.
Since our launch four years ago, we have travelled with people smugglers and refugees from the Syrian border to Greece; gone to northern Iraq to witness the human cost of the battle against Islamic State; investigated the worrying trend of rising suicide rates; decrypted the implications of Brexit for everyone involved; and embedded with senior Taliban militants in Pakistan to trace Islamic State’s eastward expansion.

A truth filter
We are also honoured to have received the support of the Google DNI fund, the French government, Digital Catapult and many more for our ambitious N-Stream project.
This is a call to action for the creation of a super AI aggregator that can filter all of the world’s news media, extract the most reliable information and present it in a way that helps people better understand what is actually going on.
Please visit nstream.org and enter your email to join the programme and find out more about this non-profit, open source initiative.
