The new DW is for the world's local heroes: People who rely on global insights and who think, reflect, reconsider and innovate. It's about those who make the rules, instead of playing by them and motivate instead of standing in the way. We are there for them. It's our job to provide them with the news and information they need to shape their world - made in Germany, made for minds.
