In 2019 the magazine focused on the relations between Development and the Environment, the content throughout the event explored this topic from various angles. Our honored keynote speaker was Prof. Alon Tal (Tel-Aviv University) which discussed the tension between Development and the Environment from a more macro level, through elaborating on environmental policies.

The Israel21c website has published an article about Fabian Bulugu, a Glocal cohort 7 alumni, who opened a farm for at-risk youth in his native Tanzania. 

Fabian worked with a local israeli organisation, Kaima, during his studies in Glocal.

The course focuses on the two-way relationship between major demographic events and societal transitions. Demographic events include epidemics, large-scale migration, and more recently, the dramatic reductions in fertility and mortality. Societal transitions include those related to religious belief and practice, political instability, economic development, as well as to those associated with the "second demographic transition" in contemporary low fertility countries.
