Madrid, Spain (PressExposure) January 24, 2014 -- ROOSTERGNN Global News Network, the first global, bilingual and independent news agency celebrates its first anniversary today. Based on freedom of expression, ROOSTERGNN is a collaborative platform that publishes opinion content in English and Spanish.

The agency's live coverage of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Warsaw was extremely popular among readers. From Poland, ROOSTERGNN provided transcriptions of speeches by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lamaa, Mairead Corrigan-Maguire, Frederik Willem de Klerk, and others.
As part of the Summit, ROOSTERGNN also established a partnership with the Feed the Hungry Foundation. In collaboration with the NGO, ROOSTERGNN has been reporting on critical hunger and poverty issues, such as food distritbution and reconstruction in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. Additional highlights included Prof. Buck Ryan's article on the NSA, which he submitted from Shanghai, and Camilo JosÃ© Cela Conde's story on the mind and beauty.
The year came to a close with the integration of two further sections, GAPBRAVE, a student travel guide, and MADbudget, a local's guide to Madrid, where ROOSTERGNN currently has its main offices.
Working closely with universities, think tanks and other educational institutions worldwide, ROOSTERGNN to date has over thirty partners, including graduates from Harvard University who have come on board as editors for specific sections.
In 2014, ROOSTERGNN will be further expanding its network of partners and correspondents. Committed to the fight for freedom of expression, ROOSTERGNN is launching a Global Ambassadors Program for young and motivated people who are interested in representing the agency in their respective part of the world.
In the quest to provide high quality content to a bilingual audience, ROOSTERGNN will also launch a series of monographic magazines this year. Stay updated at http://www.roostergnn.com
