Come join Spark Live and Showcase your Content!

The deadline for submission is May 7th, 2021

Hello and thank you for your interest in making content with us! 

Spark Live is where we produce all our live & recorded content for organizations. We cover a wide range of narrative themes each quarter so be on the lookout for areas that interest you. For the Q3 2021, our narrative theme is Global and Local.

As with our earlier narrative themes, the concepts “Global” and “Local” represent the two sides of one same coin. After decades of unfettered and unchallenged globalization, cries for a “re-localization” can be heard across different industries and activist disciplines. In many cases, global trade, commerce, and distribution of goods has wreaked havoc on the environment and on local economies. Nowadays, any kind of fruit is available all year round, transforming our consumption and dietary patterns and expectations, relying on import from around the world, while producers supply to a global market. At the same time, however, we should not throw the benefits and positive impact of globalization out with the bath water. After all, the democratization of digital, and other technologies has allowed certain countries to “leapfrog” and skip some of the stages in tech development, potentially avoiding environmentally detrimental stages of development. Examples of digital technologies aiding local education abound, for example in 360ed in Myanmar.
