Our name is inspired by a simple principle that many small actions can make a big change. Just like the saying that “many drops make a bucket, many buckets make a pond, many ponds make a lake and many lakes make an ocean” the words on our platform are part of something bigger.
With this principle in mind, we talk about global issues from a local standpoint through our growing community of people working to create a better future.

We provide a platform for local perspectives and informed views, giving a voice to academics, researchers, concerned citizens, human rights activists and experts. We believe that raising awareness, informing people, and encouraging discussion about global issues is fundamental for promoting change.

In order to ensure the content we provide is dedicated to giving a voice to neglected issues, we do not seek advertising on our website, therefore, we need the support of people with like-minded principles. 

We cover human rights, gender and environment because we believe that these are the three global issues that concern us all. Though in different contexts, global issues often are rooted in the same problems. Our ultimate goal is to build a community of people who are aware and are inspired to take action towards tackling issues affecting human rights, gender equality and the environment.

Our Principles

Inclusivity
We invite anyone, of any culture, race, gender and sexual orientation to write for us. We are interested in the connection you have with the topic you want to write about and we want to know why it is something worth spending your time on. We value passion, commitment and dedication.

Connection to the piece
Our contributors are connected to the issues they write about. They are either based in the country or region of focus, work in an organization that is related to the topic they are writing about, are activists or academics. Their expertise and local knowledge is what makes WIB unique.

Transparency
We are transparent about our editing process, we are constantly learning and are keen to listen to any constructive criticism or feedback our readers may have. We also value transparency in our articles and include the bios of authors so that our readers can see how they are connected to the issue they are writing about.

Our approach to editing
We believe that editing should be a constructive process where the contributor and the editor learn from each other. We provide suggestions, we don’t cut through your piece without explaining why, and we provide a one-on-one editing process that begins at the idea phase.
Our contributors are guided from their pitch until publication. We are here to create an informed community and provide a platform which includes writers who may not be used to writing in English.
