Text size Aa Aa

2016 was a heavy year for news, so I invited a few of my colleagues to take a look back at what happened and try to make sense of some key events.

We managed to cover subjects including Brexit, Donald Trump and the war in Syria.

By far the most difficult task for all of us, was to find some good news, but in the end we succeeded. Take a look.
