Global Village Space has been created as a web portal for the disseminating information and knowledge from our writers to our readers. It is not about us but about you. It developed as an idea from a newsletter we have been producing and been sending out the past several years. The special essence of that newsletter was to provide our readers different viewpoints on the same issue without us the ‘moderator’ imposing our own viewpoint.
