huffington post germany
We live in a time of international crisis and conflict: from the European financial crisis, which is robbing millions of young people of their future, to the conflict with Russia and finally to the bloody rise of ISIS. All this is dominating the news coverage worldwide. But the Huffington Post does not only want to report about dramatic developments. Our goal is a global network, with editors and thousands of bloggers who address topics which move people in their everyday lives. And this network continues to grow more and more.
To everyone who has been a part of this vibrant community, may our second year be as exciting and fulfilling -- and as free of late-night emails -- as the first. Happy birthday, congratulations and gratitude from all your HuffPost siblings across the world.
Starting in 2011, HuffPost has been expanding around the world. Our two English-language editions in Canada and in the UK
Greetings from Germany! I'm in Munich for the launch of The Huffington Post Deutschland. We are delighted to be partnering with Hubert Burda Media's Tomorrow Focus, one of Germany's fastest-growing digital media companies. HuffPost Deutschland -- which will be led by our editorial director Cherno Jobatey and editor-in-chief Sebastian Matthes -- will be both a journalistic outlet and a blogging platform for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We will be relentlessly covering politics and news at a very fascinating moment in German history, as well as putting a spotlight on how Germans of all generations are dealing with the Third Metric, which is what we call redefining success beyond the first two metrics of money and power to include well-being, wisdom, wonder, compassion and giving. After all, Germans came up with the fabulous concept of Gemütlichkeit, which captures a state of coziness, intimacy and an unhurried tempo that we so desperately need in modern life.
