This diary/planner combines a practical weekly diary with images of action and activism - an exciting collection of photos and illustrations to reflect the cultural richness of our world.
Drawing on New Internationalist's experience of creating high quality illustrated diaries and calendars using recycled materials - this weekly diary is for those who swim against the tide. It's highly practical, and filled with illustrations, street art, paintings, poems, doodles and more, all submitted by young artists from around the world, giving an insight into the worlds they live in, come from, visit and create.
It's also a diary with no other competitor, as it breaks the usual mould of using a fixed structure and design every year. Presenting quirky and creative ways to represent injustices, humor, politics, love and life in the world today, it will appeal to students and young people interested in counter-culture, dissent and protest.
Each year a new designer is given freedom to create a unique look for this great diary. This year the designer/editor is Jason Koen, from Adelaide, South Australia, currently travelling and working in Canada,
Also includes listings of international festivals and activist organizations, fascinating 'number nuggets' and subway maps (including London, Amsterdam, Sydney, NYC).
Printed on 100% recycled paper by a printer holding environmental accreditation ISO 14001

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
My brand new, New Internationalist Diary for 2017 has just popped out of my letterbox... The diary is so cool - I love it. There is just something so special about opening a new diary before the year begins, looking at all the blank spaces waiting for fabulous new things to be written in them. Many thanks for putting together such a unique publication.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the stories of people who are working to build a better planet.
The Independent Press Awards are selected by the editors of Utne Reader magazine to 'honour independent efforts that provide bold, innovative, thought-provoking alternatives to mass media fare.' The New Internationalist magazine won the inaugural 1989 award for International Coverage.
Since then, the magazine has won the award for 'Best International Coverage' another eight times, most recently in 2013. In the year 2000 the New Internationalist also won the highly valued readers' poll.
I'm stimulated, excited, saddened and engaged by the people who write for the magazine. Keep up the great and important work.
A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
