We discuss pure energy, the power that doesn't come from oil. More and more, people around the world are inspired to tune in and turn on to alternative energy sources. They're reaching for the sun, for unexpected bounties on earth and, more often than not, for each other to power the planet. We hear from the Middle East, the Phillipines, Burma, and South Africa.
Latitudes is an hour-long series of programs that takes you into the lives of everyday people around the world. The stories are unexpected, rich in sound and riveting to hear -- they engage the intellect, the conscience and the imagination. They feature people who are finding constructive solutions to some of life's toughest challenges.
Latitudes features on-the-ground reporting by a vast international network of correspondents. We also train local reporters around the globe, who take us inside their communities.
Latitudes is a collaborative production of the Global News Partnership, WAMU (Washington, DC), and WUNC (North Carolina). Editorial partners include the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the Christian Science Monitor.
