Home alone - Japan's growing numbers of modern-day hermits, the so-called "hikikomori". Also: why Rwandan farmers' greatest fear is heavy rain. Plus: this week's Global Snack is fish and chips, the most British of all fast foods.
Global 3000 is Deutsche Welle's weekly magazine that explores the intersection of global development and the environmental and social conditions of the diverse cultures of the world. In each program, host Michaela Kufner presents three to four video-rich segments that profile a different part of the planet where man's quest for economic and industrial strength is jeopardizing the ecosystems and the social and economic structures of people thousands of miles away. The program not only documents where those struggles are taking place - but how some groups and individuals are finding solutions to the growing problems of global development.
