Green corridors helping cool Medellín


March 4, 2024

It’s mid-afternoon along Medellín’s Avenida Oriental, a traffic-clogged street that slices through the heart of Colombia’s second largest city, and Nicolas Pineda is crouched down as cars zoom by on both sides.

He hacks at a patch of dead, browning bush and then pulls up a rogue, zig zag-shaped shrub beside his foot.

About World Half Full

More and more people are turning away from the news. In a 2017 survey conducted by the Reuters Institute, around half the respondents (48%) said they avoided news because it had a negative effect on their mood. Is it any wonder? So much of it is polarising, divisive, disruptive, bombastic, antagonistic and SHOUTY! The 24/7 scroll of negativity is corrosive to the soul. It leaves us stressed, anxious, fearful, depressed, disempowered, and often exhausted. WorldHalfFull offers an antidote to this angst. We're here to provide uplift to your newsfeed by offering a respite from the daily grind of doom and gloom. Bookmark WorldHalfFull today and youll soon discover that the news isnt all bad. Or, subscribe to the News. Each time we find a good news story, well send it to you.
