The Education for Sustainability (EfS) standards were developed by the K-12 and Teacher Education Sector of the USPESD with input from K-12 educators in public, private, and pre-service (teacher education) fields. The Needs and Growth of Plants and Animals, a unit for Kindergarten developed by Shelburne Farms' Sustainable Schools Project. Junior Energy Website(resource for PLT's PreK-8 activites “Energy Sleuths,” “Renewable or Not?” and PLT's GreenSchools! Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo  has two special programs for National Sustainability Week.
Visit a material recovery center and follow the paper trailfrom the recycle bin back to the shelf. Students distinguish between direct and indirectly transmitted diseases and participate in a group game to simulate the spread of vector-borne diseases.
This is a very interesting middle school curriculum called "If Trees Could Talk" that takes an "enviro history" approach (). Teachers' Domainis an online library of more than 1,000 free classroom media resources from public television from NOVA, Frontline, Design Squad, American Experience, and other partners.
Teachers Domain's Environmental Public Health Special CollectionThe medical and technological advances of the past few centuries have helped improve human life on Earth, but technology has also had some unintended, harmful effects on human health and the health of other living things in our environment. The Nourish Middle School Curriculum Guideoffers a rich set of resources to open a meaningful conversation about food and sustainability.
Project Learning Tree's Secondary Modulesinclude topics in Biodiversity, Forests, Municipal Solid Waste, and Places We Live. The Sustainability Education and Economic Development SEED Center, has resources for community college educators to assist with: Defining the Green Workforce, What is a Quality Green Program?, and How to Build a Quality Green Program. Across the globe, higher education institutions are integrating sustainability initiatives into their strategic plans. 1-Developing Courses or Degree Programs in Sustainability: To support increasing interests, higher education institutions are developing courses and programs that address different aspects of sustainability.
2-Creating Campus-Wide Energy Saving Initiatives: A growing number of higher-education campuses have adopted policies to reduce energy consumption.
3-Going Paperless: By eliminating paper Institutions are saving on time, resources, and costs - right from the start. 4- Finding Innovative Ways to Reduce Vehicle Fuel Usage: Many universities are taking actions to reduce vehicle usage.
For the duration of this project Nektarina Non Profit serves as an umbrella organization, coordinating activities and resources.
We are happy to announce that Education for sustainability Project (E4S) has settled its base in Venezuela. Our new country manager Vladimir de Chelminski is aiming up high with a Green school Project, video making, networking, social media presence and much more to advocate for integrating sustainable development in Venezuelan schools. It is good to know that even though Venezuela is far behind with sustainability consciousness from the people, policies and within education, there is some kind of boom, or success right now, with activities promoted by local activists that are changing many peoples’ paradigms.
The government has removed the Environment Ministry and made a fusion with the Ministry of Housing and Habitat, having 6 vice ministers for that matter.
We want to present ourselves in front of the Venezuelan society as strong people who love the earth completely without borders, and bring possible solutions to have a better planet for our kids.
We will penetrate the learning process and offer consciousness, thinking at least for the next seven generations. We will start by doing the work inside schools while making visual register of all our steps, in order to make an explicatory video about a sustainable vision of our schools, and then present these solid statements to the government and try to change the course of the planet in a minimum but valuable way. Eventually, student Snega Dighe read a message from Miss Sandra Antonovic, Nektarina Non Profit Co-founder and CEO. The participants then walked in procession through the roads of Pune by showing banners and giving environmental awareness slogans and reached the polluted riverbank. During the whole event, all guests and participants were invited to write a message on a 20 feet banner. We are proud to affirm that this celebration was successfully conducted as shown by the numerous participants and their involvement during the day, as well as the interest demonstrated by the media.
We shared with you last week a few pictures of the schools drawing competition organized by Zest Youth Movement from India, together with Nektarina Non Profit. ACT International is a not-for-profit rights based national organization focusing on women, youth, children and marginalized segments of society. The ILO is pleased to announce a two day Inter-agency workshop on Employment and Social Inclusion in a Green Economy to be held  in Turin, Italy, from 4 to 5 March 2013. Last, but not least, we end our tour presenting our focus countries this week with the Asia group: Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan. Bangladesh is located in South Asia and it is bordered by India, Burma and the Bay of Bengal. As the 7th largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinct geographical entity. Nepal lies in the south of Asia and it is bounded on the north by the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China and on the east, south and west by several Indian states. Pakistan lies in Asia, strategically placed at the crossroads of Middle East, South and Central Asia. The presentation of our focus countries has reached its fifth part, this week moving eastwards and concentrating on the ex-soviet republics Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia. Armenia is situated at a cultural, historical, and religious intersection and located at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, in the southern Transcaucasus. Azerbaijan is situated on the western coast of the Caspian Sea, in the eastern part of the South Caucasus. Belarus is situated in the centre of Europe, bordering on Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia and Ukraine.
The Republic of Kazakhstan is located in the central part of the Eurasian continent, at an equal distance from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Ukraine is located in Eastern Europe and shares its borders with Moldova, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Belarus and Russia.
The objective of this new publication by the UNFCCC and the United Nations Joint Framework Initiative on Children, Youth and Climate Change is to highlight concrete work young people do to incite their governments and the international community to scale up action on climate change and raise ambition towards a post-2020 climate change regime. Some young people or organisations (like the NGO I belong to – see pages 66 and 67) submitted some work they have been doing at home. The United Nations Joint Framework Initiative on Children, Youth and Climate Change is also keen for organisations to make use of the report and promote on their own websites, social media etc. Yesterday June 11th the publication was launched at the UNFCCC Intersessionals Climate Change Negotiations at the Ministry for the Environment in Bonn, Germany.
I am not quite sure how to start this “From our desk”, as we are still trying to comprehend that we’ve had over a half a million views for our April issue.
For our May issue we spoke with three fantastic, positive and inspiring women: Jill MacIntyre Witt, and environmental activist from the United States, Anam Gill, a young journalist from Pakistan and Amanda Jane Saurin, alembic distiller and producer of handmade natural skincare, from England. On Earth Day eve we saw Do the Math, a brilliantly done documentary from 350.org, and since we find Bill McKibben to be endlessly inspiring, we also read his book Deep Economy.
We’ll also talk about sustainable agriculture, the Western Caucasus (the World Nature Heritage Site), fundraising, the Armenia Tree Project, and we have some truly beautiful photos from Malta, Cornwall and Chile. For your easier reference, we have added an E-Publications tab on our website, where you can easily find all our online publications. After publishing a booklet about Sustainable Living last year, this year we are continuing with more resourceful materials about sustainable schools, sustainable cities, sustainable food and the history of sustainability.
This week we are bringing you Sustainable Schools, a 30+ pages resource manual explaining different aspects of sustainability in schools, and also sharing some best practices and what-can-you-do examples. The publication is printable in A4 format, but we urge you to consider your environmental responsibility before printing. Some of you may already know that as we entered the second year of the Education for Sustainability project (September 2012) we started e-publishing a monthly magazine Nektarina (S)pace. Our idea was to mix topics from nature, sustainable development, climate change, urban living, lifestyle and culture, and create a fusion that targets a wide population. Our April issue was published yesterday, bringing you 230 pages of great content and beautiful photographs. While talking to a friend the other day, being inquired what am I doing these days I was astonished when he said that you are a Pakistani journalist, write about issues from Pakistan. In 1982 this Caribbean small island state, less than one-year at that time, proposed to the United Nations that Antarctica should be considered a global common just like deep-sea bed and should be dealt and managed by the UN for the good of humankind. Now there is clear evidence that the pristine condition of Antarctica raised in 1982 in the UN was very valid. The rise in sea level spurred by glacial melting in the polar regions of the world is an open secret. The recent flooding in the Balkans reported as worst flooding in over 120 years is a case in point.
Considering the fact that SIDS produce extremely low levels of greenhouse gases suggests that they will suffer unduly from the damaging impacts of climate change. The small island developing states are already experiencing the adverse affects of climate change with the sea level rise impacting the economies. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) adopted in 1992 that was ratified by 195 parties has a role to play. With all these conferences and summits being held in a safe and luxurious environment every year, the Islanders are still facing the threats unaware that their future is in the hands of a few. Kiribati, pronounced KIR-e-bass, the local version of Gilbert, an island nation in the Pacific Ocean will start to disappear in 2030 according to some researchers because of the rising seas. The President of Kiribati, a nation of 33 islands, Anote Tong has already started lobbying other nations to begin accepting his inhabitants 103,000 in number as climate refugees. The oceans are absorbing 15 times faster heat than the last 100,000 years according to some recent studies. The president of Kiribati is visiting various places in search of a place to move his people. The inhabitants of Kiribati have lived peacefully with their surrounding for the past 3000 years.
In an interview the president of Kiribati said that the Obama administration does care about the issue but there are people in the Congress allergic to the term climate change. Just like Kiribati Tuvalu is another island, the fourth smallest country in the world which most of us haven’t heard about. While searching on Google about the small island developing States I did come across many stories from the Islanders themselves crying for help to the international community. Kiribati a nation that barely contributes to climate change will be losing everything because of it, they have to suffer not because of their own mistakes but because of the mistakes of others. As we celebrate the UN Day of Diversity for Dialogue and Development I once again started following all the talks regarding diversity and inclusion. Visiting various places and meeting people from diverse cultures and backgrounds always made me believe that we the human race are similar. This approach to living known as global citizenship is not just limited to extensive world travel rather it is a philosophy that appreciates diversity, inculcates empathy and compassion for people from diverse ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds and as a result promotes peaceful coexistence. In many place across the globe the divisions are evident resulting in unrest around the world. The common heritage of humanity is cultural diversity.  Across time and space culture takes diverse forms. When it comes to integration and rejoicing in our diversity there are many ethnic groups even today that struggle for inclusion, among these groups are the Roma people also known as Romanis. Having a long history of living in Europe estimated to be living since 13 century, there are more than 10 million Roma living in Europe recognized as one of the European Union’s largest minority groups. Given the limited data collection on Roma people it is estimated that varied numbers of Roma populations live in nations across Europe. The multilayered and entrenched issues faced by Roma people do look like a description of communities living in the developing world. The only solution to this problem that press for segregation of communities on the basis of ethnicity, race and religion etc is a more humanized approach. The Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (UNESCO) states that cultural diversity is one of the roots of development not just in terms of economic growth but also in terms of achieving a more satisfactory emotional, intellectual, spiritual and moral existence. All these declarations, just like the Universal Declaration of Human Rights stating that everyone is born equal, are full of hope. It is ironic that on 1 May I witnessed something that was contrary to the reason why we get this day off here in Pakistan.
Sipping my chilled drink casually I happened to have a glimpse of another family sitting right next to our table. My previous article was on education for sustainability and how important it is for young children to be educated as they are our future. May Day, Labor Day or International Workers Day recognizes the efforts of the working class.
When we are talking about a sustainable future we need to keep in mind the ulcers that plague the society, child labor being one of them. The employment or hiring of anyone below the national minimum working age is known as child labor. Considering it’s poverty that is the triggering factor, when working towards the Millennium Development Goals the unequal distribution of wealth and the monopoly of few economic giants should also be taken seriously.
Keeping in mind Agenda 21 that talks about eradication of poverty in order to increase production and sustainability to meet the needs of world’s majority seems a distant dream at the moment.
However this again points out to the crux of the matter and that is poverty that pushes for such bizarre actions. Understanding the complex relationship between economy, society and environment keeping in mind the global inequality should me our main concern. Everyone has their part to play in this including governments, nonprofit organizations and consumers. Nektarina Non Profit, with its Indian partner Zest Youth Movement, took part in the indoor Summer Activity programme for students organized by Sakal Indian media group on April 26 in Pune, India. We conducted an innovative and interactive session, which aimed to present and share ideas about sustainability in a very concrete way.
Sandra Antonovic, Nektarina’s Co-Founder & CEO, first gave a brief introduction and organization details of the event, and then presented Nektarina, the Education for Sustainability project and its aims. Participants showed a very good interest for the topic and expressed their feedback with much energy and enthusiasm. Originated in 1968 the idea of sustainable development to be incorporated in a charter by Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev led to a lot of organisations stepping forward and try to make it a reality. It comprised not only of global connectivity which we as a human race have been sharing for a long time rather it also obligated to keep in mind the future of mother earth along in it’s struggle for a better world for future generations.
On this road to forming a sustainable global community Nektarina founded in 2009, wanted to carry this message forward. Mustering up courage along with other organisations Nektarina wanted to implement the four basic principles of Earth Charter in all it’s projects since it’s inception.
Projects like Nektarina Connect through Art, My Planet and Me and Nektarina Visual Essays invited people from all over the globe to participate using non formal, participatory methods like the medium of arts to express themselves focusing on caring for community with love, understanding and compassion.
Keeping in mind the first principle of the charter that is respecting and caring for the community of life, Nektarina engaged various communities in all it’s projects focusing especially on the Roma rights.  The Roma people have been segregated since a long time and integrating them into the mainstream is a challenge in Europe.
Nektarina’s various educational campaigns centre on recycling, reducing carbon footprint and development of sustainable cities keeping in mind the ecological integrity principle of Earth Charter. To promote social and economic justice strengthening democratic institutions and promoting a culture of peace and non-violence Nektarina came up with an initiative Education for Sustainability. In Pakistan the local education ministry at provincial level tried to incorporate value education which was related to sustainable education in the public schools.
A curriculum especially designed to impart knowledge on waste management, protecting the forests, looking after each other and thinking about a greater community, a global community will equip the children with a better understanding of the world. The Earth Charter is based on intercultural dialogue fostering the need for unified responsibility. At the heart of the Earth Charter is a tenet of respect for life on the recognition that all beings are inter-reliant and all life forms have value irrespective of their worth to individuals. The ethics of Earth Charter and Nektarina are grounded in a shared vision of widely shared responsibility for the planet Earth and it’s inhabitants.
Fascinating as it is, in 1994 there was a study done in which it was discovered that two groups of police officers undergoing the exact same simulation training were more likely to draw their weapons if the room was uncomfortably warm. Drawing a connection doesn’t mean that climate change is solely responsible for human rights violations. In a research done by University of California, Berkeley and University of Princeton the researchers found that personal violence was far more influenced by a leap in temperature. Seeing the current state of world affairs where most of the countries in the East and West are having a political turmoil it does sound accurate. The researchers in their study also stated that they see the same pattern across the world. In the research Prof Hsiang quoted that environmental conditions do change people’s perception of their own conditions and the use of violence or aggressive behaviour by people to change their situation and accomplish some goal. Well that does make sense being a student of conflict resolution and peacebuilding I also understand that there are various reasons triggering a conflict and have their roots in interpersonal and intergroup relations.  Looking at the dynamics of conflict which is a tricky subject to deal with no sane person can equate violence with climate. The researchers found that while climate is not the sole or primary cause of violence, it undeniably intensifies existing social and interpersonal tension in all societies, regardless of wealth or geography. Since the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) entered into force in 1994, the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC has been meeting annually to assess progress in dealing with climate change.
Successive decisions taken by the COP make up a set of rules for practical and effective implementation of the convention.
The 18th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC and the 8th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol will take place from Monday, 26 November to Friday, 7 December 2012 at the Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha, Qatar.
Version 3 of the standards includes content updates and clarifications in response to expert and general public review and comments. The University of Connecticut has developed a comprehensive curricula for students in grades K through 8. There are a number of activities that work well with grades 3-adult, including Earth Day 40 video, Climate Action Pledge Tool, Earth Day Jeopardy, Climate Change Jeopardy, 100 Mile Diet Game, Ecological Footprint Calculator and Board Game, and Climate Solutions Bingo. This Video is from Teachers Domain (4m 02s) Grades K-8 Also includes background essay, questions, match to CT standards, and link to another related unit on how students can make recycled paper. They then research a particular pathogenic disease to learn how global warming—and biodiversity loss—can affect disease transmission. This online game will help students explore the concepts of "carrying capacity" and resources use.
Beautifully designed and brimming with big ideas, the materials contain a viewing guide, six learning activities, action projects, student handouts, suggested resources, and a glossary.
Including Climate Systems, Causes of Climate Change, Measuring and Modeling Climate, Impacts of Climate Change, and Human Responses to Climate Change. This site includes essential teaching principles that can be used to increase student awareness of the earth's climate.
This is an interdisciplinary curriculum unit giving students a comprehensive understanding of the effects of climate change. Many universities and colleges have signed international agreements such as the Talloires Declaration and the Copernicus Charter for Sustainable Development to further their commitment. With thousands of offerings available worldwide, some institutions are taking it one step further. For example, Tufts University has replaced all computer monitors with LCD monitors which use less energy.
With the increasing sophistication of education technology, universities like Western have decided to go digital. Some schools are offering free parking passes to faculty members and students who carpool or vanpool. As we consider environment as a matter of vital importance, Nektarina Non Profit celebrated WED in India with its local partner, Zest Youth Movement.
Among them, students from different institutions and universities, colleges school children, representatives of civil society organisations, companies and political parties. Madhav Gadgil world famous environmentalist and Mr Anil Shirole, current Member of Parliament of the Pune Constituency. Madhav Gadgil introduced the event by addressing the public with a speech in which he mentioned: “Environment growth and active participation of the citizen regarding the 74th amendment of the Constitution and as per the Biological Diversity Act gives an excellent opportunity but we fail to take advantage of it. In her message, Miss Sandra Antonovic shared how the environment taught her that everything in life is about giving, not receiving. With appropriate equipment, participants started to pick up waste and finally took an oath for a non-polluted river. The organization particularly works with disadvantaged segments of society to empower communities by building peoples’ engagement, capacity and partnership focusing on women, youth and children for a better tomorrow. Africa, Serbia, Turkey, Mexico, Indonesia, etc.) and experts working on assessments and policy formulation. A short description of their specific features can be found below, but in the Wiki section you can look for more detailed information covering various aspects. Bounded by the snow-covered Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards to the tropical rain forests and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west. The brief depiction outlined below can be completed by more detailed information found in the Wiki section of the website. It extends from the Baltic Sea in the west to the Japan Sea in the east and it comprises 11 time zones.
It is designed as a tool and a source of inspiration for developing and carrying out projects, initiatives and campaigns to increase awareness of the causes and impacts of climate change, promote sustainable lifestyles and advance green low-carbon development. May is also the month when we celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. We are hoping that these three interviews will inspire you and maybe help you find your own niche-world, your own bit of heaven. We are bringing you 200+ pages of great content and photographs, interviews and personal stories, one really great documentary and some inspiring artwork.



The publication can be downloaded, for free, as a pdf, and you can read it on any of your mobile devices. Don’t forget the E-Magazine tab, with all issues of our Nektarina (S)pace web magazine. You can read the publication online, or, alternatively, you can download it as a pdf to your computer or device(s) and read it offline. Every month we do our best to bring you content and photographs hoping they will enable you to learn more about the environment and sustainability, and inspire you to lead a more environmentally conscious,  more sustainable life. Interesting as it might sound yes I do write about issues faced by Pakistan but that does not stop me from opening my eyes to the rest of the world.
At that time the concern put forward by Antigua and Barbuda looked vague but now as the polar ice is melting, threatening small islands as they drown the proposition made in 1982 have become apparent. Climate change in the Antarctica and Arctic and the ongoing human activity in the region have adverse affects on the small island making them vulnerable to flooding. Burying our heads in the sand won’t let us get away with this issue.  It will only make things worse in the future. Here it can be seen that it is not just the severity of climate change but the lack of resources to cushion people against the climate related disasters that will determine peoples’ fate. There are 51 states and territories classified as small island developing States (SIDS) by United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. Already facing similar sustainable development challenges like low availability of resources, vulnerability to natural disasters, dependence on international trade and small population the small island developing States suffer from costly administration and public infrastructure with weak economies. The potential threats have made some islands like Kiribati, Maldives and Tuvalu uninhabitable.
The Kyoto Protocol to the UNFCCC, no more effective, was a treaty making it binding on the industrialized nations to reduce greenhouse gases emissions. No country so far has expressed interest in accommodating the people of Kiribati that is very much obvious when it comes to migration.
The ocean met their needs for food and the atolls gave them coconut palms, a reservoir gave them fresh water making them invisible to the world. The anonymity of these islands will surely to come to an end when they are wiped from the face of this planet attracting the media craving for bad news. Some environmental activists are struggling to put the concerns of the Islanders forward in all those posh UN conferences asking for action.
Today it might be people of Kiribati but tomorrow it can any one of us saving ourselves from the floods caused by the unending greed of those hidden faces who have the authority to decide our future.
There is even a UN body known as UN Alliance of Civilizations promoting integration and peaceful coexistence.
There is a universal language which we all speak and that is the language of love.  Strangers helping you in finding the way in their own language which you hardly understand or a passerby stopping by seeing the troubled look on your face when you are stuck trying to explain to the taxi driver where you have to go, have been some experiences that made me believe in humanity. Coming from a country where religion has been politicized for many years, where many people are persecuted in the name of religion, I can relate to the religious divide. Sometimes I don’t decipher why this has been going on for years, human beings do understand that they are here for a brief period so why to waste time and money in waging wars and creating unrest. This ethnic group of Indian origin, originated almost 1000 years ago lives mostly in Europe and Americas.
During the inaugural World Romani Congress which was held in London in 1971, the term “Roma” was chosen and accepted across EU to describe diverse communities and tribes.
The most significant Roma populations live in Central and Eastern European states of Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria. Poor living standards, low levels of literacy, unemployment, lack of health and education facilities and above all the discrimination are prevalent in the places where Roma people live. The European Commission encouraged the development of National Roma Integration Strategies to consolidate the efforts of member states to improve the lives of Roma community. It requires us to differentiate between criminality of a few and an entire ethnic group whose future is tainted by the wrongs done by those few. During the early 1990s 7% of Roma students were taught in segregated classrooms or schools. It inspires genuine dialogue enabling communities to get to know and understand each other. Considered more of a break rather spring holiday when government and private organizations, educational institutions and markets remain closed, 1 May is celebrated across the world as an International Labor Day.
One striking and odd happening I noticed was that two little girls were accompanying them as their domestic help and were asked to sit away from their table. It acknowledges the hard work and sweat which they pour into the lives to keep the cycle going. Here we did get to see many advertisements commemorating Labor Day and it being a national holiday many shows were dedicated to it.
According to ILO 2010 report there are 215 million children around the world involved in child labor.  Because of the lack of data it is difficult to estimate the magnitude of child labor in many developing countries including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Vietnam to name a few. If we want a better future for the world we need to take along the impoverished segments of the society. The concentration of world’s resources in few hands is the root cause of most of the problems clearly.
Connecting the dots is important; in order to build a better future we need to invest in the present.
The government agencies have failed to deal with the problem and stop the increase in child labor both at homes and industries.
The consequences of unchecked and badly managed development are costly, irreversible and negative. Video conference and IT support permitted our British-based team to work closely with the Indian team in carrying out the activity.
This online formula had different impact on students as everybody enjoyed interacting so easily from thousand of kilometres distance.
The charter was created by a global consultation process endorsed by various organisations, representing the hope of millions to work towards a sustainable future which focuses on the well- being of human family at large.
The message was simple which is to create a sustainable global community respecting nature, human rights, economic justice that promotes a culture of peace.
Enthusiastic to make a difference and ardent to make a positive contribution it developed projects that aimed at engaging people from all over the word, declaring responsibility to one another, the greater community of human existence and to future generations.
The campaigns and projects of Nektarina rejects the isolation of communities based on ethnicity, cast, creed and religion. The aim of this initiative is to make sustainability part of the educational institution’s curriculum.
Letting them learn to think ecologically and developing a capacity to apply this understanding effectively to develop better communities is an essential measure in today’s age and time.  A true sustainable community is diverse, dynamic and continuously evolving. With limited resources they developed curriculum and trained the teachers to pass on the knowledge of how children can take small steps that will make a big difference. The project Education for Sustainability is in line with the fundamental principle of Earth Charter that talks about Integration of knowledge, values and skills needed for sustainable living into formal education.
The vision of shared values in the Earth Charter is especially focused on environment.  However, the inclusion of ethical vision reflecting the realization that political, socio-economic and cultural challenges are interrelated. Beginning with an attitude of respect for others and finding expression in caring, preventing harm and promoting well-being these tenets inculcate a sense of ethical responsibility.
There are many studies available now that provide evidence that in an unstable climate, conflict and human rights violation will escalate. Though the correlation is evident at times convincing many environmental scientists and researchers that there is a dire need to take action. When researching through it I came across various studies trying to find a direct and indirect links, finding a connection, giving evidence every now and then to prove their point.
The researchers in the journal called Science stated that an unstable climate aggravates three types of violence namely personal, political or intergroup leading to institutional breakdown. We have been witnessing disparity and human rights violations leading to various social outburst across the globe, be it Egypt, Crimea, Turkey, US, Sudan to name a few.
They stated that it is assumed that our modern society is largely independent of the environment because we are technologically advanced but it is quite the contrary. The need for this research is to highlight that climate is a critical factor and affect how things escalate even to the point of violence. All parties to the UNFCCC are represented at the COP at which they review the implementation of the convention and any other legal instruments that the COP adopts and take decisions to promote the effective implementation of the convention. In 2010, governments agreed that emissions need to be reduced so that global temperature increases are limited to below 2 degrees Celsius. As sea level rise, wildfires, and devastating droughts showcase, climate change’s impacts are already being felt across the globe. The forum will discuss how to greater mobilise public-private-partnerships (PPPs), the challenges of sustainable urbanisation with an ever-increasing population, and the latest advances in technology and innovation.
These curricula are intended to illustrate the application of the science, math, and language arts taught in our schools to learn about the environmental and human health concerns facing society and to introduce the concepts of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to students, their families, and their communities. Among many useful curricula the site includes special collections in the areas of Climate Change and Global Warming and Alaska Native Perspectives on Earth and Climate.
In this program students learn how the major causes of global climate change are affecting habitats around the world.
Presidio Graduate School, one of the world’s first sustainability universities, offers MBA, MPA, and other degrees with a special focus on sustainability. Some schools are also switching to renewable sources of energy like wind, solar, and geothermal. By moving their course evaluations online, Western will reduce paper consumption and minimize the time and effort it takes to manually prepare evaluation projects. But, since there are opposite forces playing on the ground, many people have decided to make the changes for themselves. We are part of those people and we want to unite with all the other complements of this puzzle. Not simply a celebration, the event aimed to contribute to raise environmental protection awareness among the population with a particular focus on youth and education for sustainability.
As being a citizen of this country, I will be committed for the next five years to work actively on the issues of transport management in the city, waste management sewage, water purification, river improvement and plantation of trees among other things.” He emphasised the fact that is it only possible with an active citizen support and cooperation and congratulated all participants for the wonderful work done to celebrate WED. If you ever wanted to experience the living reality of the idiom “when it rains, it pours”, Bangladesh is the place to be.
The capital city is New Delhi, while neighbouring countries are Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Located southwest of the capital Yerevan, in present day Turkey, Mount Ararat dominates the national landscape, psyche and character, as an ominous reminder to its glorious past. Although a landlocked country, Belarus is the land of more than 10 thousand lakes and 20 thousand rivers. Russia has 14 neighbours: Azerbaijan, Belarus, China, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, North Korea, Norway, Poland, and Ukraine.
Kiev is the capital of Ukraine and the largest city, followed by Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Odessa.
We love it that you love it, and we’ll do our best to keep bringing you interesting content, thought provoking interviews and beautiful photography. It is printable in A4 format, but we urge you to consider your environmental responsibility before printing it.
As it turned out Antigua and Barbuda had recently been an independent nation and thus lacking resources to continue to press the case for Antarctica being declared by UN a global common. It is not just small island states many coastal areas of big countries are also facing similar threats. Many researchers and scientists have made connections between climate change, human activities and a rise in extreme weather conditions, drawing our attention to an obvious risky situation.
These small islands developing states are located across Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans including the Caribbean Sea. Changes in precipitation affecting drinking water and agriculture, sea level temperatures affecting fisheries and the extremities causing damage to the infrastructure have forced communities to leave putting the nations’ sovereignty at stake. The UNFCCC was there to protect by laying down targets for the reduction or limitation of greenhouse gases in this highly industrialized world.  With various Conferences of the Parties (COP) held in exotic destinations like Cancun, Durban and Copenhagen etc it was seen that all these forums ended up being termed as failed dialogues, even the UN Earth Summit was labeled as a failed summit as no concrete decisions were taken by the powerful head of states to curb the menace of climate change. Far away in the island of Kiribati many might not even know of UNFCCC or what this Kyoto protocol is all about.
According to Bloomberg Businessweek, 68 percent of the carbon is emitted by half of world’s population, wreaking climate hardships on smaller countries. The apocalypse can come sooner for Kiribati if the storms like the ones that struck Philippines and Haiti strikes the island.
However in Fiji the president of Kiribati has bought 6,000 acres of land to accommodate the inhabitants, apparently to the dismay of Fiji’s military rulers.
Some historians believe that the people of Kiribati descended from the migrants from Indonesia. When in need we always look for help from the privileged ones and the ones who are satiated have a huge responsibility to act conscientiously when faced with certain challenges. It is sad to know that in my life there will be places in the world that will become non-existent.
But to be honest when it comes to policy development and industrialized nations taking action we fail again and again. 21st Century is a century of peaceful coexistence and it is better to acknowledge this fact sooner than later.
The intolerance which I get to see every day, reading bizarre news stories on blasphemy laws where many people have been targeted because they belong to a minority community makes me cringe.
We have so many other issues to deal with and if we channelize our resources and time into those productive inputs we can try to contribute positively to this world before leaving this pale blue dot.
Cultural diversity is a source of inspiration, innovation and exchange thus necessary for humankind just like biodiversity is for nature.
There is a need for policy change regarding Roma people that consider them equal, many politicians have admitted that there is a dire need for better welfare programs but they fear voter backlash if they will speak up. Nelson Mandela was right when he said that not knowing that the apartheid did not die it just took a different size and color.
They must be about 10 to 12 years of age and were there to look after the kids in that family, carrying their belongings. I felt uneasy seeing what was happening before my eyes and at the same time I felt helpless too.
And then there are those children who shouldn’t be working but work to feed their families. Then why it failed to create awareness on the simple issue that children shouldn’t be allowed to work, here I am not talking about kids working in the factories or kids begging on the streets but domestic help. It is important to attack the structural causes of inequality, rejecting the autonomy of financial markets that are solely based on personal gains to solve the world problems. In today’s world we do come across many charity organizations working simultaneously and many nonprofit organizations voicing similar concerns but in the end it is the powerful that maintain control not letting anyone or anything break its strongholds. That does not only include monetary investment rather an investment of our time to think and to feel the need to take action.
For the parents struggling to make ends meet education is not their priority sometimes parents themselves sell children into labor.
Seeing the expression “sustainable development” everywhere these days does make one think what exactly it is about? Sustainable development does give us a new way of thinking to manage human impact on the world. Regarding the overwhelming positive feedback we received from Indian partners and participants so far, we deeply believe that they would respond equally positive to the opportunity and the importance to study sustainability in school. The only hindrance now was making it a reality not letting the message get distorted on the way like the Chinese whisper. Using sustainable art that comprise the use of various mediums like photography, painting  etc to engage people, raise awareness, helping them to improve their lives and communities with a better understanding of living in a global community that disseminates the message of protecting the environment .
Moving on with empathy, compassion and love to build just societies has been an essential objective of Nektarina.
The essential aspect behind these various projects and publications is to connect people from across the globe to share ideas, educating and inspiring them to work for a peaceful global community. To inculcate in children the importance of a sustainable world that safeguards their future.
Starting off by educating children encourages us to dream and hope for thriving, sustainable human communities. Those small steps starts from saving energy my switching of unwanted lights, closing the water taps while brushing, keeping a litter free environment to the importance of recycling to name a few. The importance of educating children to understand and act on the issues of sustainable world was seconded at Earth Summit. Keeping in mind this juxtaposition we need to work towards an impact that only contributes positively.
Nektarina comprises  of a multicultural team from all over the world including Pakistan, Croatia, France, India, Fiji, Trinidad & Tobago, Spain and people working in Nektarina have travelled extensively getting to know various cultures, equipping themselves with a better understanding of the world communities. Nektarina is trying it’s best to take everything together keeping in mind all the principles.
Earth Charter encourages everyone to identify with the global community as well as their local communities and to be compassionate towards the entire human family. The shared values between Nektarina and Earth Charter do focus special attention on the environment. It has also become a norm these days that if someone doesn’t have a specialization in a certain field most of the time they are not taken seriously. Because the truth is simple no matter how bitter it is or how much we try to run away from it.
Drought and flooding cripple an economy, especially one that is already weak or that is based on agriculture.
Analysing 60 studies from a number of disciplines including archaeology, criminology, economics and psychology — the researchers have explored the correlation between weather and violence in various parts of the world from about 10,000 BCE to the present day. Taking an example of Egypt people came out on the streets demanding for their rights, pressing the governments the need for their well-being. We need to connect the dots and let our reasoning be based on solid foundations to avoid more damage.
Meanwhile, extreme weather events — most recently, Huricane Sandy — serve as powerful reminders of what the future will look like if action is not taken. The program invites interested teachers in Connecticut schools to participate in a pilot project of the IPM and Environmental Science curriculum during the 2010-2011 school year.
They will also meet animals that are being threatened by climate change and animals that can survive and even thrive during this global issue. Their unique approach incorporates sustainability concepts into conventional course content. Other initiatives range from switching lightbulbs and appliances to installing software that can detect unused computers and power them off. Bringing good vibes and showing the world a possible way of being coherent with every possible relationship established on earth, the environment and the biosphere that feed us and give shelter. This has comforted the concern that we have to strive towards inclusive and sustainable progress. Never stop searching for answers, never stop asking questions, because standing still is a terminal illness”. India has achieved all-round socio-economic progress during the last 64 years of its Independence.
It has a unique topography ranging from lowlands with sub-tropical jungles to arctic conditions in the Himalayan highlands. The landscape of Pakistan ranges from lofty mountains in the north, the Karakoram, the Hindukush and the Himalayas, through dissected plateaus to the rich alluvial plains of the Punjab, where the Indus River flows south to the Arabian Sea.
The Ararat plain is divided by the Araks River and occupies the south-western part of Armenia. Forests take one third of the territory and are considered the national wealth, while swamps account for 13% of it and are of significant climatic and hydrologic importance. Remarkable for its landscape diversity, from mountains to desert, from snow to palm trees, Georgia ranks among the world’s wonderlands.
Being the world’s 9th largest country and located in the centre of Eurasia, Kazakhstan is also the largest landlocked country in the world. One of the most famous cites in Ukraine is Yalta where the historic Yalta Conference was held in 1945. No matter how big or small those places are, just like a small island state Antigua and Barbuda I read about recently. The few countries given responsibility to decide the future of Antarctica failed to reach a consensus albeit having many discussions over a period of time. For the Islanders it’s a red flag raised on various occasions, with the rise of sea levels due to climate change they face an unprecedented challenge.
The climate of SIDS of tropical and sub-tropical oceans is influenced by ocean atmosphere interactions resulting in cyclones, hurricanes, coral bleaching, erosion and inundation of land. Now we have to wait till 2015 to see if there will ever be a significant step taken to resolve the issue or at least try to be honest about it.
I remember once being enchanted by a magical dance performance by the people of Samoa and Fiji, always smiling.
The leaders of industrialized nations have been quiet and resisted to pay attention and come to aid for the societies at risk. These are some reasons that will led to a mass migration forcing 103,000 citizens of Kiribati to leave their land resulting perhaps in the first migration due to global warming rather than famine or war. It is sad to see that there is not enough room on this planet to accommodate some inhabitants of this world. In a way the powerful nations when asked for help do have constraints whereas in reality these powerful nations are the cause of most problems being faced by the SDIS more or less. The entire countries like Kiribati, Tuvalu, the Republic of Marshall Islands and Maldives are particularly at risk of extinction. Struggling to get asylum in other places many Islanders did admit that they don’t want to leave their home as their spirits live here.


We are doing the same things again and again expecting different results, Einstein rightly called that phenomenon stupidity. I can’t deny the fact that I have a passport with a specific color but global citizenship is more than that, a phenomenon which makes you feel at home in the new places, finding it easy and fun to connect with new people. Hence for the benefit of present and future generations it should be recognized as the common heritage of humanity. It is interesting to note that the estimates provided by non-governmental organizations active in this field vary from the “official” population estimates.
According to the definition of Roma by the Council of Europe it includes travelers and gypsies. Unfortunately it is not an easy task made even more difficult by the arrival of newer members in the East like Romania.
Here media also plays a vital role by acting responsibly in portraying the truth without taking sides and influencing the opinion of people by misrepresentation and miscommunication. It is important that the countries pay heed to the clauses and act on it ensuring freedom and well being for all.
Writing about various human rights and problems of the world I couldn’t do anything to stop them from doing what they were doing. I once thought that there might be an international day condemning child labor but I didn’t want to wait for the day to write about it. It is a choice which that family had to make and they not only conscientiously went for it rather segregated the girls and made them sit away from the table where they were eating. Many reports evaluate the severity and frequency of child labor in more than 197 countries. The mindsets based on profits have been affecting millions and a dire need of a holistic approach is needed to face the monster of inequality. Children are our future, we need to invest in them and make sure that they get their rights. Is it really possible to pursue sustainable economic growth without harming the environment and the societies? An impact that can generate lifelong benefits for everyone, giving million of children around the world a chance to be children and not some cogs in a machine.
The future holds great perils and promises simultaneously as the world becomes increasingly interdependent. Projects like Connecting Through Art and Nektarina Web Magazine invites people encouraged everyone to voice their opinion. We can learn this from the nature’s ecosystems which are sustainable communities of animals, microorganisms and plants. Keeping in mind that today’s students will be tomorrow’s leaders and decision makers helping them engage in debates , letting them acquire a better understanding of the world and global community will be a positive step for the future. Living in a globalized world where the distances are becoming less with each passing year, globalization is bringing people and cultures together. Nektarina in upholding the Earth Charter principle of mutual respect and understanding by giving equal opportunity to everyone involved in it’s mission. Nektarina recognizes the interconnections between human rights and protection of ecosystems promoting a culture of justice and peace.
It is just to state the fact that in uncomfortable environmental situations there is a likelihood of a rise in violence.
Reviewing the studies for a period of 18 months they were confident in drawing their conclusion.
Therefore, negotiators will need to figure out a way to make progress, both to finalize the rules of past decisions and how to come to an international climate agreement by 2015. Curriculum kits and training workshops would be provided to your school at no charge.They would also work with your school district to promote the project to the entire school community. Then she shared a few words about the Education for Sustainability project in India, volunteering implementation plans and progress. While most of the country lies at or just above sea level, the flat landscape gives way to low undulating hills in the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the hilly regions of Sylhet, some of which climb to 1,000 m above sea level. It has become self-sufficient in agricultural production and is now one of the top industrialized countries in the world.
Within a mere 150 kilometres the land rises from near sea level in the south to over 8000 meters in the north. Then it follows the desolate barrenness of Balochistan and the hot dry deserts of Sindh blending into miles and miles of golden beaches of Mekran coast.
Azerbaijan is a region with unique geographical, climatic and geopolitical characteristics. The Belarusian marshlands are called “the lungs of Europe”, since they produce an enormous amount of oxygen. These resulted in a specific climate and a peculiar natural system of the country, which seems to absorb the brightest examples of landscape of both continents. Another very important administrative and cultural centre is Saint Petersburg, often referred to as the second capital. Ukraine has a strong artistic and cultural heritage and offers travellers many choices of attractions and destinations to explore such as castles, palaces, ancient cathedrals, and stunningly beautiful national parks and reserves. I think I shouldn’t necessarily be from that place to raise the concern which that small island state is facing.
Cyclones accounted for seventy six percent of the reported disasters in the Pacific Islands from 1950 to 2004.
The happy people of these various Islands deserve to be protected not letting the greed of a few wipe them out of the face of earth. Surviving Japanese and British invasion one can see the remains of the war like a massive Japanese gun placed on one of the islands of Kiribati. The sea level rise that has affected the entire cycle causing various problems is undoubtedly the result of high carbon emissions by the powerful nations. Most coastal communities face similar environmental struggle especially these places whose inhabitants are living at sea level. Instead of cherishing our diversity we end up being hateful, blindly following the political propaganda.
In our increasingly diverse societies it is important to ensure harmonious interactions of varied groups with the willingness to live together.
There are many stereotypes associated with them from allegations of criminal activities to age old one of children being stolen by the Roma people commonly known as Gypsies. However in the UK the term Roma is mostly used for migrants coming from Central and Eastern Europe. In Slovakia, principal of Sarisske Michalany junior-elementary school, Jaroslav Valastiak has been trying for gradual integration of classrooms.
Article 9 of Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity states that each country should have a cultural policy that incorporates international obligations. The resilient Romani people have survived the horrors inflicted by Hitler in postwar Europe but still face prejudice and exclusion.
Many international organizations, United Nations and European Commission are pressurizing the countries to end their exclusionary policies and give Roma people equal opportunities to participate in a better way. The shocking aspect is how widespread child labor really is, with numerous countries at a high risk.  A report classified UK as medium risk with rate of child labor incidences just 2% lower than that of Pakistan, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. Developed nations mostly grow up with the notion that every child has a basic right to education.
That doesn’t mean that I am looking forward to a cataclysmic change but yes I do look forward to see the decision and policy makers taking serious measures to put a full stop on this.
Does it mean that if we are pursuing prosperity today we are putting the future of our children and grandchildren at stake?  Seriously working on the issues of sustainable development including economic growth in developing countries, corporate social responsibility and other issues using real world examples in important. Eliminating child labor and improving conditions must be a collaborative process including all stakeholders taking on responsibility. There is a need to develop a multi-stakeholder response system that guarantees the protection of all the children especially the ones facing economic and social challenges. To move forward we must keep in mind that as a human family and earth community we must move forward with a common destiny. Connect through Art was a space especially for women from conflict areas to express themselves using art forms.
Educating young people which will enable them to gain an understanding, knowledge, values and skills and address environmental and social changes issues. Education itself centres on environmental or sustainable education where students are taught that they are a part of natural world, now they should also be taught to protect the natural world. We have transcended the geographical and national boundaries in communication.  This definitely proves the point that we are at stage where the problems associated with the Earth are no longer affecting one region or group of people rather we all are affected equally by the problems that affects the marginalised groups more. This holistic understanding is reflected through Nektarina’s various projects and campaigns that do constitute sustainable development in it’s core.
Nektarina asserts that the spirit of human solidarity lies in the kinship with all life, mutual understanding and gratitude.
Now there are studies proving it but just to share my regular observation during our extremely hot summers in Pakistan, you get to see fights and people arguing more on the streets.
The researchers predicted in the study that people may face a threat as precarious as extreme weather and that is each other.
People have been protesting in other places too like Brazil and this phenomenon looks global now not confining to any one particular region or affecting any one particular tribe.
Visits to this area offer an experience of the true diversity that Bangladesh possesses, both geographically and culturally. India is one of the oldest civilizations with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage.
This, together with the monsoon rainfall along the south facing slopes, has resulted in compacting virtually all climate zones found on planet Earth. Amidst towering snow-clad peaks with heights varying from 1000 m to over 8000 meter, the valleys of Gilgit, Hunza and Skardu recall Shangri-La.
Seven main landscape types are represented across the different altitudinal zones of Armenia, ranging from desert and steppe to woodland and alpine zones, featuring high mountain peaks, fertile valleys, picturesque land formations, basalt columns, rock sculptures, scenic canyons and waterfalls. The present Republic of Azerbaijan has rather small territory but it is possible to encounter here 9 of 11 basic climate zones existing. Besides, they serve as nesting places for rare species of birds and as a natural habitat for rare plants.
In addition, complicated history of Kazakh people and constant interaction of nomadic lifestyle with settled people in South Kazakhstani ancient cities, have lead to a unique and authentic culture of Kazakhstan. Recently, eco-tourists have been finding Ukraine to be an inspiration in the effort to protect wetlands, coastal regions, and majestic mountains.
The climate in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean is dominated by North Atlantic subtropical high and Asian monsoon system respectively.
Similarly US, India, Russia and Germany are contributing to the unpleasant fate of the SIDS.If scientists are right in their estimations, the ocean will swallow the island nation of Kiribati sooner than it seems. I have never had the opportunity yet to visit these paradise islands though I wish that I get to see these islands thriving with life instead of mere remnants left from a haunted past. But I wish everyone have had a chance to experience this amazing feeling where you consider the globe, your home. It is interesting to see in Lahore a mosque that has a shrine in it’s precinct where Sikhs go for worship. France’s expulsion of Roma on the basis of how Roma are “a drain of resources” did receive international criticism. To wall off Roma communities some 400 mayors in Slovakia have created a movement by using safety and health regulations. After a long legal battle it was decided that the segregation violates anti discrimination laws in the country and it was made mandatory for the school to integrate students. The implementation of that policy should be done by suitable support and regulations which it considers fit. It is not just the Roma people but other minority groups too that are segregated and considered as an outcast in many places around the world.
Moreover the European Romani have formed their own organizations like Roma National Congress that represents the interests of Roma people and press for change.
However we should not forget that it is illegal for children under minimum age of employment to work emphasizing and ensuring that children below minimum age enjoy their childhoods in school.
Bringing forth a sustainable global society that is founded on the values of universal human rights, respect for nature , economic security and justice and a culture of peace we must join together. Moreover the Visual Essay competition especially invited young people engaging them to learn more about issues relevant to their communities.
Education for sustainability is a step forward to include sustainable education in the “official” curriculum with the help of education ministries and departments, institutions and councils and boards relevant to the field of education around the world.
This is an important time in history where we have to take each other with us on our struggle to build a better world. Keeping in mind the Earth Charter principles Nektarina believes in the vision of a peaceful and just world celebrating life joyfully. And in this situation looking away would just be another selfishness which comes naturally to us as human beings. The study reports that due to extreme climatic conditions violence in all three categories exacerbates regardless of geography or stability. The country has metamorphosised into one of the most sought after destinations for travel, much due to the presence of several renowned world heritage sites, and an inherent spiritualistic force, which pulls enthusiastic travellers towards it from all over the world. As a result, Nepal has been endowed with a great diversity of life-zones providing a home for a large variety of plants, birds and animals. More than 200 rivers and streams traverse Armenia, with steep falls, rapids and swift currents.
There are vast steppes and high mountain ranges with the tops attracting climbers and those interested in wild nature. In order to preserve the rich world of plants and wildlife, a network of national parks and nature reserves were established in the country. Russia enjoys a vast territory, rich historic and cultural heritage and wild nature in many of its regions. The climate characteristics prevailing in the SIDS and their socio economic conditions make small island developing States most susceptible in the world to climate change.
Besides the sea level rise and saltwater inundation Kiribati is facing a crippling disease burden. For me it is not about religious tolerance, I don’t like that word as to me it suggests that you don’t like someone but have to tolerate him or her. The Roma people in UK are split between those living a nomadic life in caravans and the ones with poor and precarious housing which reflects the situation almost across Europe.
Roma minority do face marginalization and exclusion across Europe but some activists note that in Slovakia it is at its worst.
Those two girls into domestic labor are not the only ones, there are many hidden from our eyes working in the factories, at home, picking rags and begging on the streets. These children do not go to school, work for long hours and are separated from their parents for long periods. Child Labor especially child domestic labor no doubt has become a global phenomenon but just like every other issue it is the developing world or the marginalized segments that are affected by it the most.  According to ILO many countries in Sub Saharan Africa are a leading concern including Ivory Coast, Ghana and Mali. Protection in the law and its practice safeguarding young workers should also be emphasized protecting them from abuse and exploitation at work place.
To express their thoughts in creative visual styles invitations were sent to around 300 educational institutions from all over the world. The country is a pictorial of landscapes, opulent historical sites and royal cities, golden beaches, lofty mountain ranges along the Ghats, lush greenery, tropical rain forests, colourful people, rich cultures and festivities.
To many visitors, the Himalayan Kingdom conjures up the images of snow-capped mountains and rolling green hills. The people with typical costumes, folk dances, music and sports like polo and buzkashi provide the traveller an unforgettable experience. In Azerbaijan one can also meet plenty of curative, mineral and thermal waters, mud and oil for medical treatment. Throughout many centuries of history, the Belarusian people created its unique and original culture and continue to celebrate today traditional folk customs and rites harmoniously interlaced with Christian traditions.
As a nation at the crossroads of Europe and Asia as well as Christianity and Islam Georgia has long been marked by war. There are other problems that plague the nation including many diseases that afflict hundreds like leprosy, tuberculosis and diabetes. These segregated communities here Roma people who have been denied employment and are forced to live in settlements just because of their ethnicity should be considered an asset not a burden that adds a new color to the cultural diversity.
It does make me question that when I am writing about the right to education don’t I include them? It is also important to highlight that every family has a right to life and to live we need money.
These various days celebrated to highlight the importance of issues are not about having a day off to relax, it is about taking out time to think and instead of looking for just one day to feel obliged to think on one particular issue we can do it every day.
Young people were asked to contribute on the issues of human rights, minorities, environment and integration.
Thankfully, with increasing stability and economic development, conservation programmes are finally starting to get off the ground. Modern Pakistanis are a blend of their Harappan, Indo-Aryan, Indo-Iranian, Saka, Parthian, Kushan, White Hun, Afghan, Arab, Turkic, and Mughal heritage. The protected areas occupy 2.4% from the total territory of the country and cover all basic climatic landscapes in Azerbaijan.
To protect against invaders an elaborate system of watchtowers alerted the people to an attack (many of which still exist) and precious religious icons and relics would disappear into caves and hidden mountain fortresses. From sea resorts at the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea and the forests of the Central Russia to the foothills of the Caucasus, Siberian taiga and the Far East one has plenty of things to discover. And when I talk about harmony it should be practiced in the truest sense among various ethnicities, cultures, race, gender etc. This disadvantaged and marginalized group has suffered for the past many years and is still being persecuted.
The first Roma-elected Member of Parliament in Slovakia, Peter Pollak called the situation in Sarisske Michalany junior-elementary school complex drawing similarities between this and Supreme Court ruling of 1945 in US “Brown v. All those millions of children with an uncertain future not even knowing or caring what sustainability is all about.
Finally, the region’s last major significant geographical feature is a massive 120 krn-long strip of beach lining tile internal eastern coastline of Bangladesh, said to be the longest natural beach in the world.
Waves of invaders and migrants settled down in Pakistan throughout the centuries, influencing the locals and being absorbed among them.
Villages in the most remote mountain valleys would escape the invaders attention entirely, thus some of the oldest and most superlative Frescoes are found in the highlands. Russia’s rich history bears the traces of Vikings, ancient Slavs, Mongols and Tatars, Scythians, Swedish, Greeks and other peoples. Board of Education” in which the court declared separate public schools for black and white students unconstitutional.  This however seems like a scratch on the surface as Peter Pollak believes that though the court has taken a right decision, the government has practical challenges making it difficult to support integration efforts.
With the rise of chocolate industry over the years, the demand for cheap cocoa has also grown.
A small country, Nepal is diverse geographically as well as ethnically with more than 61 ethnic groups and 70 spoken languages.
Thus the region encompassed by modern-day Pakistan is home to the oldest Asian civilization and one of the oldest in the world, the Indus Valley Civilization.
Sometimes in order for the family to survive the children tend to help out sacrificing school. The visitor will find rich cultures and vibrant traditions, exquisite temples and monuments as well as fast flowing rivers and tropical jungles teeming with wildlife, making your trip an unforgettable experience. Democratic and authoritarian rulers replacing one another, built palaces, established museums, left mausoleums and grand multi-storey buildings, powerful power plants, but also camps for the repressed. Surrounded by intense poverty the children of West Africa begin working at a young age many are sold to the traffickers and farm owners. Once taken to the cocoa farms the children are exposed to dangerous work environment and deprived of education. However, all the people from different races and religions live in harmony and there is an ideal blending of Hinduism and Buddhism. Using dangerous tools to expose the cocoa beans these children don’t even know the taste of chocolates which the privileged enjoy bragging about the brands of chocolates. This unfair trade still continues today as I write though the levels may have been reduced still little progress can be seen in this trade making the reduction insignificant.  Violating ILO labor standards it has short term and long term effects on the lives of children. The governments of West African countries lack the resources and commitment to investigate the violation of labor laws. In addition to the chocolate industry the textile industry of Brazil, Turkey, Paraguay, Bangladesh, China, India Burkina Faso and many others in the list use a large number of child laborers. Similarly in the sports, footwear and leather industry child workers are working in huge numbers.
There are many factories in the world today that have employed children like cloth, sports goods and other factories. These factories should be held accountable and there should be a proper check and balance ensuring that these practices are not in the supply chain of these factories. The policies and procedures should be in place and communicated well monitoring and improving labor standards.
The optimism shown by ILO in some reports saying that we are moving in the right direction is inapt.
There is a need to speed up the efforts engaging governments and policy makers to enforce effective laws making it illegal for young children to work.
