DW celebrates one year of World Stories with its partners around the globe
DW’s show World Stories is celebrating one year on-air today. So far, the program has featured more than 340 reports about places, people and issues across the globe. World Stories was developed as a unique way to highlight the local issues in a globalized world. Collaborating with its premium international partners, World Stories features their best and most captivating stories. Journalists from around the world share their view of their home country and continent, their people, and their issues.
