What is Foreword?

Foreword is a media platform that enables the exchange of innovative ideas surrounding issues of global reach and massive individual impact. It is a space for engagement with present and future challenges brought upon us by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Following The Fourth Group values, Foreword’s goals are to create an online communication channel for citizens to share concepts and opinions on the interaction between modern politics, technological advances, and social issues. As a consequence of opening up and expanding such debates, Foreword aspires to reach global influencers, and become a driving force behind a new approach to social problems in the face of the growing presence of technology in our lives.

How I got involved

As a master’s student of international development, I’m fascinated by the ways in which new technologies are impacting not only our individual lives, but also our social and political systems. New technologies are rapidly changing economies of both developing and developed nations, hence, it is a priority of mine to learn about their effects in various aspects of private and working life. Having recently concluded my undergraduate studies in international relations, I am interested in foreign affairs and always want to be on top of global changes, to enrich my awareness and understanding of our rapidly evolving reality.

I believe technologies can bring about great benefits to our existence, but can also be to our detriment in various ways, and this is why I am volunteering as editor of Foreword, to educate myself and others on the significance of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Why you should get involved too!

I extend my invitation to everyone to join me in this enriching experience by enjoying the insightful articles that will be published every month here on Foreword. For those interested in being an active member of this educational process, don’t hesitate to join the movement!

You can send an email to foreword@fourthgroup.com with an introduction of yourself, your field of expertise, and an article idea you would like to propose. We are looking for affirmed, motivated, and passionate individuals, mainly in the fields of politics and technology, but anyone who feels like they have some insightful perspectives to share is welcome!
