In the age of globalisation,
travel, language learning and polyglotism are extremely popular.
The exchange of culture across borders is becoming increasingly normalised and people are no longer phased by encountering culture outside of its predefined context. Every day, we step closer to a global culture, one where entertainment and innovation are shared.
Unfortunately, the narrative surrounding the use of culture and linguistics is still confined to a highly stereotypical space. National monuments, the history of war, using native pick up lines at the local pub- these are the kinds of journalism being produced around the theme of culture and language. Nuanced stories, opinion pieces and cultural grey areas are seldom brought to light.
Gladly Global seeks to build a community of conscious, global thinkers through the power of the written word, cultural empathy and mutual support of powerful innovations.
