How Did It Start?

In 2008, the project initiator Martina participated in the project “Inspiring News”, conducted by her friend Jarda. Contributing with her own news she aided in the creation of a news video.

As a professional coach, Martina is very aware of the interaction between thoughts and action. Bothered by the prevalence of negativity in the news and the devastating impact on many people, she decided to take action. In 2011, Martina started the project “Empowering Global News” as a news aggregator of positive news.

In 2013, and after a major re-alignment exercise, EGN was re-launched to empower people all over the world to balance their own news consumption.

Our goal is to revolutionize the way news is presented in mainstream media.

 

We would love you to become a reporter/spectator of life and help us spread our initiative and make a real difference to people’s lives.

Can we count on you?
