About FES Connect

After four years and 45 issues of FES Connect, we are going to take a creative pause. We’d like to thank you, our readers and contributors. You turned a simple newsletter into a lively community and online portal sharing progressive approaches to global challenges. But it is time to take a step back and develop new and exciting things for you.

Follow @FESnewsbrief on Twitter to stay in touch and receive updates on where this journey is taking us next year.
