Welcome

Welcome to www.elestudiantenews.com

Bringing you the news, analysis and articles which you care about, when you need them.

Dear reader,

On the 23rd of June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. What followed was a period of disbelief, with many people struggling to make sense of the referendum result.

During the days and weeks that followed a lot of issues within the British society became apparent. Many young people felt that older generations had damaged their chances for the future, but what is most worrying is that many people on either side (leave and remain) admitted to not having enough knowledge about the issues at hand to make an informed decision.

At EL Estudiante News we believe that this was due to underlying social and economic issues, a lack of political participation as well as a lack of interaction between generations.  Our aim is to provide a platform where people of all ages and walks of life can engage in healthy and intellectually stimulating debates on the issues that matters to them.

We hope to allow people to make more informed choices by providing all sides of the debate on the issues that matter to you. This means that we are committed to using plain language that is simple and easy to understand. It also means that we allow all our writers and bloggers to express their views without censorship.

After a hectic first year at university, having only found unbalanced and unreliable news sources our founders decided that there was a gap in the market. This led to the solid belief that there should be somewhere with reliable news, somewhere that provided the average person with the opportunity to learn about complex issues. Our founders agree that the magazine should be more than just a place to access the news, it should provide an educative and interactive platform for debate for both students and the wider public.

The name ‘EL Estudiante’ is the Spanish term for the student, our reason for choosing this as the name for the magazine is because we believe that we are all learners, regardless of age, gender, class or race. Every individual should be given the opportunity to be educated, to have their voice heard and through this magazine we hope to educate, promote positive debating and encourage learning in order to contribute towards a more cohesive society.

 

Sincerely,

EL Estudiante News.
