World Teachers' Day 2013

World Teachers' Day 2013

Posted Sat, 05 Oct 2013 04:01:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Today is World Teachers' Day 2013. While many gain notoriety or fame by making profits, the average teacher manages much more by simply developing expertise. She or he simply encourages achievement in others.

World Animal Day 2013

Unresolved, but still liable to blow up into another international row, the Arctic's exploitation is being shown up by the Greenpeace action. Military involvement seems to be part of the Russian reaction to any denial of their supposed rights to territory that belongs to no one.

With Syria now threatening a world that has been becoming a little more peaceful, the International Day Against Nuclear Testing is one we should consider as useful to remind everybody just what the people of the world want, if not the politicians.

Ecuador dumps the Amazon's most biodiverse reserve

The life of the Yasuni Reserve in the Amazon is not as we know it. With 44 times the biodiversity of the whole of one country in one hectare, it exhibits a show of insect, amphibian, bird and even mammalian species that we can’t imagine. Now replace them all with oil rigs.

The US and China cooperate in many areas but the surprising thing about this "protocol" is the way in which it quietly continues, without, hopefully, too much argument.

World Refugee Day, 20th June 2013

World Refugee Day 2013 is hardly a celebration. Affluent nations are struggling now, but without the labour and resources of weak nations, the affluence will disappear altogether. Help is most definitely needed for those who suffer so much more than we do, wherever they are.

International Day of Families - 15th May

Posted Wed, 15 May 2013 10:44:00 GMT by Michael Evans

Family-related provisions are usually important components of UN policy decisions since they form part of an integrated comprehensive approach to development. UN International Day of Families has been celebrated on 15th May every year since 1995. It can be celebrated in many ways, but whatever the emphasis might be, it is important to remember that the family unit has great value and is something that should be cherished.
