Availability information for this program

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.


  • What is the future of cities? Global 3000 went to London, where already high rents continue to rise. Finding affordable housing is also next to impossible in the capital of Rwanda. The African Design Centre in Kigali is looking for viable solutions.
