Get Involved

Written by David Sasaki On 9 April 2007 @ 2:38 am | Comments Disabled


Becoming a part of the Global Voices community either as a reader or a contributor can be a very gratifying experience [1]. For more information about Global Voices read our FAQs [2].

Here are some simple ways to get involved:

Follow the links

The best way to support emerging citizen media around the world is to visit the blogs and websites we highlight in the stories on this website. Follow the links, leave comments and let the bloggers know you are reading from abroad.

If you're a blogger yourself, we challenge you to seek out local perspectives from around the world and begin to engage and react to blogs from other countries. Look beyond traditional mainstream media. The global conversation begins with you!


Keep in touch with us!

  • Subscribe [12] to our daily, weekly, or special announcement emails.
  • Follow our Twitter [13] feed.
  • Connect with us on Facebook [14].


If you are able to make a donation [15], we are grateful for any amount. Thank you for your support for our work.

Submit ideas

Our regional and language editors [16] always welcome suggestions and ideas for stories. Our focus is citizen media from regions or countries that are scarcely mentioned in international media – or marginalized voices from any country.

If you know a blog or website we should be linking to (maybe your own?) please send us links. Also tell us who it's by, and what it's about.

To reach an editor, just select a region in our contact form [17] and email them.

Global Voices merchandise

If you love Global Voices, there's no easier way to show it than to wear one of our beautiful t-shirts or hoodies.

Buy the shirt on RedBubble.com [18]

Shirts are available in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colors. We've chosen a supplier that offers good international shipping prices and quality printing.

We're not making any money on these sales, so there's no pressure to buy them. Of course, if you would like to make a donation to support [15] the work we do at Global Voices, we'll happily accept!

Become an author

Global Voices depends on a team of incredible volunteer authors [19] to report on the daily conversations occurring in blogging communities around the world. Do you blog from or about a region or country that is ignored by traditional media? Do you follow the “conversation” in the blogosphere in your own country or some other country you know well?

If you would like to help us improve our coverage, please complete the form in the link below.

Help us translate

The stories on Global Voices are often translated into multiple languages by our Lingua translators [21] who help maintain Global Voices websites in Spanish, Chinese, French, Arabic and all the languages you can see in the header at the top of this website. You are very welcome to join as a volunteer translator or proofreader.

If your language is missing from the lineup, you can even volunteer to start a new Lingua website, and build your own team.

Global Voices has a series of projects [23] that also need your help. Take a look!

Badges and news feeds

Bloggers around the world — please link to Global Voices! If you support us then show it with a badge on your own blog (see code below).

You are also welcome to embed any of our many RSS feeds [30] on topics (like “China” or “freedom of expression”) directly on your website.
