Glocal 2020 Magazine Launch: Cities and International Development

June 18, 2020

 

On Thursday June 18th, 2020, the Glocal Program launched its Annual Magazine, written and edited by Glocal alumni and students.

This year, the Magazine focuses on international development in the context of cities, urban renewal, urban migration and city lives. The different perspectives from the field present a complex picture, of inequality and poverty, but also one of opportunities, for public participation in decision making; shared space and cultural exchange; and channels for urban renewal and peacebuilding. 

Glocal International Development goes online

March 31, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, the Hebrew University, similarly to many universities around the world, has shifted all of its teaching to an online method. At Glocal, we began the second semester this week, offering interactive online courses in a variety of topics ranging from “Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation”, “Public Health and Development”, to “Migration, Refugees and Development”, as well as a new course on “Development in Conflict Zones”. Lecturers employ a variety of teaching methods and Glocal students are closely supported both by staff and by our own “buddy system”.
