Welcome to Utne

UTNE READER. UTNE THINKER. UTNE DOER. UTNE CONNECTER - All of them are right here!

| November-December 2002

Welcome to the new Utne Reader. With this issue, we’re unveiling a host of improvements that make the magazine more exciting to look at, more compelling to read, and more useful to you in making sense of the personal, political, and cultural challenges of our times.

We’ve redesigned, rearranged, and created new departments to do an even better job of fufilling our longtime mission:

• to deliver the freshest ideas and insights from important sources usually ignored by the major media;

• to draw attention to existing problems and opportunities out there in the world in a way that inspires discussion and action;



• to celebrate the people who, in ways both large and small, are making a difference in the lives of others; and

• to spread a bit more whimsy, joy, and laughter through the universe.
