News Easy will be a blog where invited experts will provide high-level easy-to-understand overviews on selected topics that are recurrent in the news. Complex topics, such as migrations, wars or economic trends are often misunderstood by most people. For them, in News Easy, experts will describe these objectively, very easily and in accessible language. This will allow people to grap the basics of a topic and then be able to better understand the short, specific news that we are presented every day in the media.
Every day we are presented with breaking news that update us on an ongoing larger conflict, program, negotiation, etc. However, these news do not provide the high level overview pre-required for many people to understand or appreciate them rightly. In fact, while we are taught at secondary school about events such as the Crusades of the Byzantine Empire, we are not taught about candent problems of the present society that are of great importance, such as the situation of North Korea or Venezuela. Many people devote hours listening to the news every week, such as when driving to work or having dinner, yet they do barely understand them enough to interiorize the information and develop a really informed position. In my view, understanding these problems is even more important for one reason: it is when people understand what is really happening in the world around them when they can start to effect a positive change.
