21 June is International Day of Yoga!

Awakening a sense of wholeness, Yoga reminds women and men of the values, dreams and needs they share with all others, providing them with strength to overcome conflict and promote peace.

In this way, Yoga is a truly transformative force, a path to create more peaceful, just and harmonious societies. Fostering this culture of peace has never been so important, in turbulent times when all societies are transforming and all women and men are seeking new ways to live sustainably and in harmony with the planet.

How important have refugee scientists been in history? Albert Einstein, Erwin Schrödinger and Hans Bethe.

Not only refugee scientists have had a great impact on the world of science in the past, but they also continue to have a positive and tremendous influence on the scientific world.

This is why it is important to support #refugee scientists by giving them opportunities to carry on with innovating.

Half the world’s population still lives on the equivalent of about US$2 a day

Promoting and achieving decent work & economic growth is essential to build a better world for all.

Today is World Day to Combat Desertification.
Every year, 120,000 square kilometers of land become infertile due to desertification.
The decisions we make every day on what to buy, eat, drink, wear and how to travel – all have an impact on land resources.
Land has true value. Invest in it. #2018WDCD

Politicians often focus more on visible promises, such as school infrastructure, than on less tangible ones, such as teacher professional development
