Exploring Italy’s urban side through its street art and graffiti can be enlightening, and even surprising - something I learned during my recent trip. A former slaughterhouse doesn’t sound like an attraction especially in a city like Rome where there are grander monuments, museums and galleries to keep you busy.

Hundreds of activists protest in Sydney against President Trump's hardline policies on immigration and Australia's inhumane treatment of asylum seekers who are held up in offshore detention camps.
Let's kick off 2017 with the inspiring Women's March Movement. At the Women's March on Sydney, I speak with those who march for human rights.

But at the same … Continue reading Myanmar – Energy & Conflicts
