Seattle is a city with a big worldview. Named a “hyper-diverse city” by the Migration Policy Institute, more than a quarter of Seattle residents are foreign-born. Seattleites are exceptionally well traveled and the city is home to a bustling economy of nonprofits whose impact is felt across the globe. But there is no single media outlet here serving audiences who identify both locally and globally.
Enter the Seattle Globalist: a daily “hyperglobal” publication covering the connections between Seattle and the rest of the globe. It’s where Seattle meets the world.
The Globalist features travel writing from a Northwest perspective, restaurant and music reviews, a calendar of cultural events, and perspectives on global news from Seattle’s international population. Behind this layer of content is a robust community of Globalists—travelers, immigrants, global health workers, students, foreign film buffs, foodies— all the Seattleites who identify with the rest of the world.
The Seattle Globalist is sponsored by the University of Washington’s Department of Communication, Brown Paper Tickets, and The Seattle Times News Partner Network.
