Happy New Year! Canada 2016 — Science Matters: Our voices and actions bring hope for the year ahead


Our voices and actions bring hope for the year ahead

Planet Earth from the perspective of the Moon

Edited Apollo 10 image (Credit: Stuart Rankinvia Flickr)

Like any year, 2015 had its share of good and bad, tragedy and beauty, hope and despair. It’s difficult not to get discouraged by events like the Syrian war and refugee crisis, violent outbreaks in Beirut, Paris,Burundi, the U.S. and so many other places, and the ongoing climate catastrophe.

But responses to these tragedies and disasters offer hope. It became clear during 2015 that when those who believe in protecting people and the planet, treating each other with fairness, respect and kindness and seeking solutions stand up, speak out and act for what is right and just, we will be heard.

As Syria descended deeper into chaos during 2015, people in many wealthy nations called for blocking refugees. But many more opened their hearts, homes and wallets and showed compassion. Governments responded by opening doors to people who have lost everything, including family and friends, to flee death and destruction.

Shootings and the inevitable absurd arguments against gun control continued south of the border, but many people, including the president, rallied for an end to the insanity. And while the U.S. presidential race remains mired in bigotry, ignorance and a dumbfounding rejection of climate science, many U.S. citizens, including political candidates, are speaking out for a positive approach more aligned with America’s professed values. And in 2015, voters here and elsewhere rejected fear-based election campaigns that promoted continued reliance on climate-altering coal, oil and gas.

The fossil fuel industry and its supporters continued to sow doubt and confusion about the overwhelming evidence for human-caused climate change and to rail against solutions, but many more people marched, signed petitions, sent letters, talked to friends and family, demanded action from political, religious and business leaders, and got on with innovating and implementing solutions.

The public appetite for a constructive approach to global warming led Canada to shift course in 2015, taking global warming seriously enough to make positive contributions at the Paris climate conference in December. The resulting agreement won’t lower emissions enough to prevent catastrophic warming, but it’s a significant leap from previous attempts, and it includes commitments to improve targets.

If we want to heal this world we have so badly damaged, we must do all we can. Although many necessary and profound changes must come from governments, industry and other institutions, we can all do our part. For the climate, we can conserve energy, eat less meat, drive less, improve energy efficiency in our homes and businesses and continue to stand up and speak out.

Those who fear and reject change have always been and always will be with us. They’veargued ending slavery would destroy the economy; they’ve claimed putting people on the moon would be impossible; they’ve rejected ending South Africa’s apartheid system; they’ve said the Berlin wall wouldn’t come down.

With today’s technological and communications advances, everyone with access to the Internet can be heard. That’s good, but people who fear they have something to lose often speak loudest, and in the greatest numbers. I tell people at the David Suzuki Foundation, “Don’t read the comments!” It’s often disheartening to see online discourse sink to such irrational and often idiotic depths.

But many comments and efforts to stall or block necessary progress arise from fear. People who are afraid that change might remove or diminish their privilege — real or imagined — often do or say anything to block it. Unfortunately, those who benefit most from privilege or the status quo, even if only in the short term, often stoke those fears and uncertainties, taking advantage of and manipulating the frightened and ignorant for political or economic gain.

That’s not to say people must always agree. But racism, sexism, homophobia, religious prejudice, the denial of climate science and solutions, and blindness to the need for gun control are all irrational.

We can and must speak louder than those who would keep us on a destructive path despite the overwhelming evidence that it’s past time to shift course. Events in 2015 taught us that when those of us who care about humanity and the planet’s future stand up and speak out, we can make this small, blue world and its miraculous life and natural systems a better place for all.

Happy New Year 2016 from Peace Boat US

Happy New Year from Peace Boat US!

PeaceBoat US

Dear Friends of Peace Boat US,
Happy New Year! Peace Boat US wishes you all a peaceful, happy and healthy 2016!
Reflecting on 2015, Peace Boat US organized some incredible programs traveling with youth from New York and had a very productive year in the field of peace and disarmament education. One highlight was our trip in October to Latin America in which a group of NGO leaders, environmentalists, and inner-city youth from New York City traveled to Mexico, Belize and Panama to participate in a unique program focused on sustainable development and social innovation through Peace Boat US’ Music & Art Peace Academy (MAPA). Participants worked with local members and leaders from a Kuna indigenous community in Panama to carry out a volunteer project, which helped improve infrastructure and sanitation in the community while  supporting the Kuna people to advance their sustainable development goals. The program had a special focus on the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals that were launched this year.  Youth participants in the program had the opportunity to travel internationally, learn directly about indigenous culture, and develop their skills as videographers for social change.
Peace Boat US had a busy year working on peace and disarmament education through advocacy programs in New York City schools as well as at the United Nations Headquarters.  In May, Peace Boat US helped represent civil society at the United Nations’ 2015 NPT Review Conference (2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons). We worked to strengthen awareness of the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons through multifaceted activities, including both public education and policy advocacy. Highlights included a Concert for Disarmament and two side events at the UN focusing on the importance of creating a Northeast Asia Nuclear Weapon Free Zone and the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons by sharing the voices of Hibakusha; those who survived the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Throughout the year, Peace Boat US worked closely with Hibakusha Stories to bring atomic bomb survivors to New York City schools to share their testimonies and perspectives with young people and educators, reaching thousands of students. Another important event of 2015 was the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  To honor the memory of those who lost their lives, we joined a coalition of citizens and peace activists in organizing a gathering at the Consulate General of Japan on August 5th, 2015 calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons.

PeaceBoat 2 US

Peace Boat US looks forward to an exciting 2016! We hope you, your students, friends and family will consider joining a program onboard the Peace Boat. We are now preparing for a our summer program focused on peacebuilding and sustainability in Latin America during the Peace Boat’s91st Global Voyage for Peace, which will sail from April through July 2016.  We are also thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming the Peace Boat back to New York City on October 20th and 21st, 2016! We will keep you posted on the events that will take place during the Peace Boat’s visit, which coincides with the United Nations’ First Committee meetings on Disarmament and International Peace and Security. We certainly hope you’ll join us in New York in October to take part in our events.
Wishing you a peaceful new year from all of us at Peace Boat US!

Dear All:

Happy new year and make it the initiative year for protection and sustainable management of ecosystems worldwide irrespective of their size and extents of development destruction, particularly under the umbrella of “sustainable development.”

We should not forget or bypass the biodiversity of each ecosystems. Biodiversity is the foundation of ecosystems and their functions that sustain our life-support system.  At the same time, the ecosystem conservation would require biodiversity assessment, that has been ignored or bypassed to make sustainable development easier, to understand the functional health of ecosystems. All the best for the year of 2016.

Dear   Helene ! -

Merry Christmas to you …

Josef

We are coming to the close of this year.  A year has come and gone.  Most companies are closing by the end of this week and this will be our last email for this year. We don’t want to just fill up your mailbox. We won’t be going away and will answer your mail. We be back again in the first week of January.

 Chr Ms Pics ORANGE FARM – KIDS CHRISTMAS PARTY: Out of seeming chaos came voices of cheer, joy & laughter forever after. When we arrived at the primary school in Orange Farm to our surprise the parking lot was full of cars and lots of children were walking everywhere. We expected it to be empty, school holidays having started but in this case the pupils hadn’t yet received their report card and were there to get them. What to do with hundreds of kids running around collecting their report card & we are having a Christmas party for 400 kids.

       Thank God for our local helpers assuring us it would be no problem and yes they handled it with determination and a firm hand and lots of loud shouts. We ended up with @ 450 kids. We had hired a couple fantastic entertainers and had some hard working volunteers helping to handle the kids and engage them in some great games. Of course the 3 jumping castles helped greatly in keeping the little & big kids busy.

       We started off with prayer and a short explanation of Why Christmas and after 1.5 hrs of jumping, playing and target practice on one of our volunteers the kids were ready for a delicious hot dog and juice. After their tummy were full they eagerly waited for their prize, a Christmas gift of stationary (5pcs), color pencil (6pcs) combined coloring/story book, snack & a A4 page message of Christmas greetings & quotes of hope and encouragement especially for their parents.  We had lots of fun with the kids.

We still have one more Christmas party in Diepkloof, Soweto to bring some love and cheer to under-privileged children.

The children are like Christmas trees, their eyes light up, their smiles grow big and their cheery voices are like Christmas bells, ringing through the air as they play, jump and enjoy their food and gifts.

ChrMas Pics  A MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FRIENDS IN BRIXTON: We aren’t forgetting our dear friends, the pensioners in Brixton whom we will serve a delicious meal on Tuesday and on Wednesday we go from apartment to apartment presenting them their gift box with oil, sugar, tea, coffee, cappuccino, chocolate, chocolate wafers, cookies & a Christmas story booklet. A smile, a warm embrace & a word of prayer will shared with the gift.

Sending Jesus to earth on that first Christmas was part of the unfolding of God’s great love plan that made it possible for us to live our lives for love. We celebrate this gift of God’s love not just one day a year, but all year long with all who understand the real meaning of the season. Christmas continues throughout the year as we joyfully proclaim Jesus’ birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection through our words and our deeds.

Christmas is about giving in every way—God giving His Son, Jesus giving His life, us giving our love, which is His love. God started Christmas giving and we carry it on.

I’m praying for each one of you, that your Christmas will be filled with light and love, as we each do our part to light others’ lives with the love of Jesus. The world knows so much darkness and can use all the light it can get! And let’s look forward to and praise Him in advance for the many lights of blessing and care that He is sure to brighten our lives with—and the lives of those we love—in the coming year.

Thank you Helene for your prayers, support and making a difference in our lives and in the lives of those we are ministering to.

Thank you for being a partner in caring!

  15. WEDO mobilizes, organizes and advocates for a just climate agreement across two weeks in Paris at COP21. While the outcome is no where near as strong as hoped, the movement for climate justice has been emboldened, and women are at its center. This movement has given flight to our work, and gives us strength to take on the pressing challenges we have ahead. (More)
We are unstoppable, another world is possible.

marta to each of you– thanking you for the accompaniment.. –pls see . open the attachment

Thank You

In gratefulness…AND PLS OPEN THE ATTACHMENT

.. DEAR COMPAÑERAS-OS WITH APPRECIATION FOR THE ACCOMPANIMENT GOOD TIMES, AND BLESSINGS YOU SHOWER ON OUR WORK… GRACIAS.. LOVE..MARTA

Salud to each of you, dear compañeras and compañeros, this dawn as it is each day of my life, especially when I am in my country or Latin America-Caribbean, the songs of birds wake me up with their beautiful songs, a real symphony of joy.  I wake up to give thanks and bless the day of work ahead, I think of all of you, symbols of the whole world, in this loving planet.

With gratitude for the support you give us, and our ministry of accompaniment for culture of peace, you have accompanied us, and particularly me as I carry much of the international responsibilities: some shared a bed or sofa, some shared a meal with me, and some have consistently provided  basic economic support for the work we do as Siglo XXIII (XXIII Century), in our country, sub region, region, and world.

As a matter of spiritual practice, Siglo XXIII does not depend on economic support from foundations, political parties or religions, but from the support of committed friends-partners who understand our accompaniment.  For this we are most, most thankful, and hope that you would consider to keep us in mind and in accompaniment.

Siglo XXIII has continued with all of its program work:  the AHA  Folks Arts and Cultures Museum, the ecological house, the work with First Nations and traditional knowledge, the permaculture farm, the support of youth-students, the three free universities, and the alliances for sustainability.  We also have continued with all the national, regional, and global  campaigns for peace : on fiscal reform and justice, Food sovereignty, the restructuring of the debt, water as a human right, economic social and cultural rights of peoples, migrants rights, women rights, first nations rights, eradication of poverty and inequalities, climate change.

In cooperation-collaboration with UN UNDP in our country and globally, and in partnership with many networks and partners nationally, regionally and globally we have been accompanying and impacting on the evaluation and conclusion of the UN Millennium Development Goals –MDGs, the creation of the UN New Development Agenda post 2015 to 2030 in its various aspects and manifestations, the agreements of the UN Financing for Development-FfD, the recent UN Climate Change Agreement- COP21 and now in accompaniment to UN Habitat process which is about implementation at the local and territorial levels all that has been found through all the UN summits, world conferences and MDGs, SDGs, CC agreements  that is needed to LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND, FOR A LIFE OF DIGNITY FOR ALL, as stated by the UN, as a result of peoples pressing and presence at all levels

One of the 17 SDG goals is on conflict and peace, this was the results of work from nations, and teams such as ours.  However we know, that all the various aspects and expressions of the work, conclusions and agreements carried globally  up to now, can be summarized as the urgent need to LIVE IN PEACE IN A HEALTHY PLANET, thus many of us at the national and global levels, work  and live within this principle, perspective and framework.   We affirm it as the overarching goal for the 2030 New Development Agenda and Beyond

We recognize that Peace is THE solution to Climate Change and to Sustainable livelihoods. We invite you to join in this path.

Each day I envision the work ahead, visionary and futurist, a world at peace, with justice and dignity for all, and for those who still are to be born, in a healthy, healthy planet.  I know that this is the work all, and each, of us gets up each day to carry out.  At the end of each day we can with gratitude give thanks.

As committed members of those who affirm that another world is possible, and live to prove it, we have the work clear for years to come:  Sustainable, durable peace on earth: care of life, care of the planet, eradication of poverty to dismantle all kinds of inequalities.  This is peace, this is justice.  This is our commitment to bring about each day, always, in all ways.  Abrazos..marta

Praying for you to have a wonderful Christmas and an amazing 2016!!

Andres Bisonni Ministries <abm@abm.cc>

“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  Luke 2:10-11

Dear Friends and Partners,   (Para Español leer abajo)

It is a our prayer that the Lord will bless you and your family with the abundance of His love and the security of His Peace during this Christmas.  May the wonder and glory of the birth of the Son of God captivate our hearts with the reality of God’s love for each one of us!  May the life of Jesus become the center of our lives!

We are amazed at all that the Lord has done in 2015 and our hearts are full of expectancy to see what He will do in 2016!  We want to thank all our partners for making it possible for us to share the gospel with so many lives around the world this past year.  It touches our hearts, and I know it moves the heart of God, to know that you gave so that people in other nations whom you have never met would have an opportunity to hear and receive the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus.  Because of your faithful support, next year we will be able to literally reach millions of lives with the gospel!  We are continuing to plan events in many different countries, and the Lord has also opened doors to show the TV series “The Promise” in all of South and Central America, Europe and Africa!

The vision behind this project is for people around the world to receive salvation through faith in Jesus, and to also come to know, experience and encounter the person of the Holy Spirit.  We desire for people to hear what the Scriptures say about the Holy Spirit, see the exact locations where the events took place in Israel, witness how the Lord is pouring out His Spirit upon the nations today, and most importantly for them to have a supernatural encounter with the Holy Spirit as they watch.
It is our prayer that the episodes would become an instrument in God’s hands to pour out His Spirit upon countless lives around the world.  Thank you for making it possible for us to produce these videos!

We love you and we pray for the Lord to fill your life with the joy that can only be found in the Presence of the Holy Spirit!

Rejoice for great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!  Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. (Isaiah 12)

In Christ,

Andres, Giannina, Elijah, Anabella, and James Bisonni

No temáis; porque he aquí os doy nuevas de gran gozo, que será para todo el pueblo:  que os ha nacido hoy, en la ciudad de David, un Salvador, que es CRISTO el Señor.   Lucas 2:10-11

Queridos Amigos y Patrocinadores,

Es nuestra oración que el Señor bendiga tu vida y familia con la abundancia de Su amor y la seguridad de Su paz durante esta Navidad.  Que el asombro y la gloria del nacimiento del Hijo de Dios cautive tu corazón con la realidad del amor de Dios para con cada uno de nosotros!  Que la vida de Jesus sea el centro de cada una de nuestras vidas!

Estamos sorprendidos con todo lo que el Señor ha hecho en el 2015 y nuestros corazones están llenos de expectativa por ver lo que El hará en el 2016!  Queremos agradecer a todos nuestros patrocinadores por hacer posible que podamos compartir el evangelio con tantas vidas alrededor del mundo el año pasado.  Toca nuestros corazones y estoy seguro que conmueve el corazón de Dios, el saber que dieron para que personas en otras naciones que nunca han conocido tengan la oportunidad de escuchar y recibir la buenas noticias de salvación por medio de la fe en Jesus.  Gracias a su apoyo, el año que viene vamos a poder alcanzar literalmente millones de vidas con el evangelio!  Seguimos planeando eventos en varios países, y el Señor también nos ha abierto puertas para mostrar la serie de television “La Promesa” en toda America del Sur, America Central, Europa y Africa!

La vision detrás de este proyecto es que personas alrededor del mundo puedan recibir la salvación por medio de la fe en Jesus, y que también puedan conocer, experimentar y tener un encuentro con la persona del Espiritu Santo.  Deseamos que muchos puedan escuchar lo que las Escrituras dicen sobre el Espiritu Santo, ver los lugares donde sucedieron los eventos en Israel, ser testigos de como el Señor esta derramando Su Espiritu en las naciones en estos dias, y lo mas importante, que al mirar estos episodios ellos puedan tener un encuentro sobrenatural con el Espiritu Santo.  Es nuestra oración que estos programas se conviertan en un instrumento en las manos del Señor para derramar Su Espiritu sobre un sinnúmero de personas.  Gracias por hacer posible la realización de estos videos!

Les amamos y oramos para que el Señor llene sus vidas de el gozo que solo se puede encontrar en la Presencia del Espiritu Santo!

Regocíjate porque grande es en medio de ti el Santo de Israel!  Sacaréis con gozo aguas de las fuentes de la salvación.  (Isaias 12)

En Cristo,

Andres, Giannina, Elijah, Anabella y James Bisonni

                        Seasons Greetings

Hello colleagues and friends,
The planet moveth constructively ahead with COP 21, with the 17 UN Sustainable Development goals and the thousands of local initiatives in favour of ecological life-styles. Unfortunately, like never before, dark forces with the unwitting help of modern technology have led us from crisis to crisis, back to the dark ages of killing other humans for no reason, just sectoral. Yet we, all nations of this Planet, have  adopted the Universal Declaration of HUMAN RIGHTS which states under its first Article “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood”
 Just a note to share with you the hope of Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year 2016.
Health and happiness be yours throughout the year. Let’s join hands in whatever small way we can to bringPeace and peaceful living to all families, communities and nations on this Planet.

Seasons greetings, 2016

and

review of e-Forum in 2015

UNEVOCSeasonsGreetings2015(2)

UNESCO-UNEVOC [unevoc@unesco.org]
Sent: 2015-12-17
Subject: Seasons greetings and review of e-Forum in 2015

Dear e-Forum members,

another year is coming to an end. Time to say thank you very much to all of
you for sharing your knowledge and insights and for participating in so
many discussions!  Let us take the opportunity to look back on the year
2015 in the e-Forum.

It has been another very successful year on the e-Forum, not only in terms
of numbers:

* e-Forum membership continues to grow.
More than 4250 individuals (one year ago: 3,700) from 183 countries are
currently subscribed to the mailing list, and more follow discussions using
the online interface only.

* The largest group of members comes from the Asian region, followed by
Africa and Europe/North America. Less subscribers are from Latin America
and the Arab States. Partly this reflects population figures, but in some
parts of the world it will certainly have a major effect that almost all
our exchanges are in English. A record number of 1,679 messages have been
shared from January until today, coming from almost 700 different
contributors.

* In total we had 382 different discussion topics thus far.

* The 10 most active contributors in 2015 were Moustafa Wahba, Dr Ahmed
Elgeushey, Joseph Hegarty, Damian Boyle, Anil Prasad, Rafael Barrio
Lapuente, Owen Lingard, Ronan Haughey, Max Ehlers, and Joe Lokes.

* Participation of UNEVOC Network member institutions has increased
dramatically: Where in 2014 we had 81 contributors from UNEVOC Centres,
there were 129 in 2015!

* The most engaged discussion this year was started in March and lasted
more than a month: Adams Dasmani’s question on the introduction of a
“Grading system in competency based training” received 56 answers! Another
popular discussion with 40 contributions began soon after in April, on
“TVET Master/Ph.D. standards”.

* Three virtual conferences were held on the e-Forum platform in 2015. In
June we saw active participation in a conference called “Delivering TVET
through Quality Apprenticeships”. In September Professor Mike Campbell
moderated a VC on “UNESCO’s future TVET strategy”. And in November Nick
Sofroniou guided us through a discussion on “Greening TVET in the context
of COP 21″.   The reports of these virtual conferences are or will become
available to everyone at
http://www.unevoc.unesco.org/go.php?q=e-Forum%20-%20Virtual%20Conferences

You may be interested to hear about some minor new features we implemented
recently on the e-Forum platform: If you access the discussion board
online, you will notice a fire icon signifying topics with “hot debates”.
And pictures are now displayed directly under each message, such as the
Season’s Greetings card linked to this message. We do hope that we can soon
introduce new features, such as a browsing option for messages and a
message digest option allowing you to receive only one e-Forum message per
day with a quick overview on the discussions of the day. But that is for
next year.

So much for now. On behalf of the entire UNEVOC team, we would like to wish
you all a very happy festive season and a wonderful new year!

Best regards,
The e-Forum Team and all staff at the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre

P.S. Please note that UNEVOC will be closed from 24 December to 1 January.
The e-Forum will not be serviced during this period.

Happy Holidays from the WFPG!

December 17, 2015

Dear Members and Friends,

Thank you for supporting the Women’s Foreign Policy Group during our 20th Anniversary in promoting women’s leadership and voices on foreign policy issues, and mentoring the next generation of women leaders.


This year has been incredibly exciting for us. We have hosted over 35 timely global issues programs covering issues including Ukraine and Russia, the conflict in Yemen, US-Cuba relations, ISIS, the European migration crisis, Syrian refugees, peacekeeping in the CAR, and the US priorities at the UN. In addition to top officials, journalists, and authors, WFPG was honored to host events with the ambassadors of Argentina, France, Germany, Hungary, Monaco, Switzerland, as well as the foreign minister of Australia. We ended the year with a panel of top notch journalists covering foreign policy and national security hot spots. We also mentored several hundred students in NY and DC at our annual mentoring fairs and career panels and hosted 12 fabulous interns.


We are proud of what we have been able to achieve with your support, but there is still much to do and we need your help. With your help we can continue the WFPG’s role as a leading force in advancing women’s roles in international affairs and an essential resource for today’s and tomorrow’s leaders.

Your contributions this holiday season will help make it possible for us to continue all of our important initiatives to support women leaders and to mentor the next generation of leaders. We ask that you invite and encourage your friends to join WFPG as members; to provide a gift membership to a colleague or young associate; or to make a tax deductible contribution to help underwrite WFPG’s educational work.

Thank you again for all of your support and we look forward to seeing you in 2016!

Happy Holidays,

Happy New Year! Friends, Partners & Supporters Update

TakingITGlobal Year in Review

As a friend and supporter of TakingITGlobal, we thank you for being part of our journey and believing in the importance of empowering youth to understand and act on the world’s greatest challenges. Reflecting on 2014, we wanted to share 14 ways that we moved towards our vision and mission, as we look forward to expanding our circle of partners and supporters in the year ahead!
1. We Leverage Tech Tools for Change
Last January, TakingITGlobal organized a roundtable on Activating Online Communities to Maximize Impact. In addition to a survey of online platforms used by the 12 participating non-profits, we also distributed an online survey that was completed by more than 200 non-profits in our global network. Organizations also shared their models of change, contributing to a base of knowledge on impact evaluation. As part of our follow-up reporting on what was discussed, we producedTech Tools for Change, an infographic showcasing the diversity of tools used across the sector. TakingITGlobal continues to grow partnerships with organizations benefitting from our engagement and learning platforms – know anyone who might be interested?

2. We Invest in Social Innovators
Over the past 5 years, TakingITGlobal has offered a dozen facilitated cycles of the Sprout E-Course for Social Innovation, helping nearly 500 young leaders develop their ideas for social change, and connecting them to mentorship and funding to begin their journey towards turning their passions into action. We’ve collected stories of some Sprout graduates supported by Microsoft YouthSpark, highlighting the progress and impact of their social innovation projects. Recent partnerships with the Equinox Summit and Education Fast Forward will support young leaders working to improve education around the world in 2015.

Support Innovators »
3. We Cultivate Creative Confidence
Our partnership in delivering the Adobe Youth Voices program has grown even deeper, with the publication of our Guide to Action Toolkit on Creative Expression, and the expansion of our programming to a total of 35 countries in 2014. We’re proud to announce that 3 of the Adobe Aspire Award finalists and 3 of the scholarship winners were from TakingITGlobal sites! In 2014, we were able to exhibit artwork from our program at the United Nations Youth Assembly and at the United Nations Humanicy Event, helping to highlight the expressions of youth on a global stage. We also partnered with the National Film Board to hold an Adobe Youth Voices film camp, with four amazing films created by high school students in just one week!
Read More »
4. We Facilitate Intercultural Understanding
After being awarded with the Intercultural Innovation Award from the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and BMW Group, TakingITGlobal used the small grant to develop Culture Connect, a 4-week mobile learning experience aimed at growing intercultural understanding amongst students. More than a dozen cycles of Culture Connect have been facilitated to date, and a group of a dozen classrooms in 9 countries have just completed a collaborative adoption of the program.
Read More »
5. We Deliver Professional Learning
TakingITGlobal is pleased to have been awarded with three HP Catalyst Fellowships, launching three free e-courses in Challenge-based Learning on Climate ChangeFacilitating Digital Intercultural Exchange, and Monitoring Rainforests using Satellite Mapping on the NMC Academy. Each participating educator receives a digital badge, compatible with the Mozilla Open Badges Standard. We also offered more than 30 scholarships for educators in the developing world to participate in our accredited professional learning e-courses, thanks togenerous support from nearly 50 donors.

6. We Foster a Sense of Belonging
In October, together with the Samuel Family Foundation and Synergos Institute, TakingITGlobal convened a global Symposium on Isolation and Social Connectedness at Evergreen Brickworks. Our main event was organizing an Art show and evening celebration titled “Moments of Inclusion” featuring artwork from youth around the world along with apanel presentation. Following the event, TakingITGlobal Executive Director Jennifer Corriero travelled to Arviat, Nunavut in Canada’s North to meet with participants and demonstrate an arts-based approach to youth engagement.
Read More »
7. We Enable Mobile Engagement
In August, TakingITGlobal gathered more than 15 non-profit organizations for a roundtable hosted by PwC to discuss Mobile Learning for Social Good. Each organization shared their experiences and favourite apps, and several organizations presented specific good practices that we felt other organizations could learn from. You can read the event report to learn more about the insights shared! We’ve recently re-launched many TakingITGlobal site sections, including our homepage, to be mobile-responsive, and expect to complete these upgrades in 2015 to serve a growing mobile-first audience.
Read More »
8. We Connect Youth to Places of Meaning
With the support of Canadian Heritage’s Youth Take Charge Program, we launched Explore150, our first foray into location-based mobile learning. The Explore150 Smartphone App encourages discovery, learning, and sharing of a young person’s experiences at historic, natural, and cultural sites. Leading up to Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, we’re expanding the app to allow any school group or partner to create their own Adventures, custom guided learning experiences across a variety of sites. Thanks to our friends at Deloitte, who made Explore150 the focus project of their 2014 Student Leadership Summit, resulting in dozens of powerful new ideas for enhancing the program.

9. We Partner with School Boards
In partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), we offered our TIGed Professional Development e-Courses to educators in more than 25 schools last school year, supporting the development of educator capacity for designing project-based learning with technology. Across our three focus areas of Global Citizenship, Environmental Stewardship, and Student Voice, significant positive contributions were measured with participating educators. More than 90% of educators said they intended to transfer and apply newly acquired knowledge and skills to their daily practice right away, and would recommend the program to their peers. The partnership culminated in an Innovation Fair where students presented their projects as a community, and you canview a short film documenting this celebration! In 2015, we’re growing our partnership with the launch of Education for Social Innovation, a new course co-designed with lead educators.
Read More »
10. We Organize Innovative Summer Camps
Building on the success of our Sprout E-Course curriculum delivered online, we had the opportunity to collaborate with the TDSB, OCAD University’s Inclusive Design Institute and several industry partners to launch Sprout Ideas Camp. During this immersive week-long experience, 40 grade 4-9 students built their technology, design thinking, and social innovation skills as they created digital games on local or global issues of importance. We have recently been awarded a grant from the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade to expand the program next summer, and are keen to collaborate with others interested in bringing the program to their cities!
Read More »
11. We Launch Campaigns for Action
TakingITGlobal is proud to be the country affiliate for Do Something Canada, helping to bring DoSomething.org’s engaging social action campaigns to our Canadian audience. Our first campaign, Teens for Jeans, engaged nearly 1,000 schools and collected more than 25,000 pairs of jeans for homeless shelters across the country. We’ve just launched the new Canada.DoSomething.org portal with five new campaigns – interested in partnering on a campaign, or can you help spread the word to young Canadians?
Read More »
12. We Influence Behaviour Change
Our Commit2Act mobile app, supported by Active Philanthropy and an anonymous donor, has expanded to a web app accessible on all Smartphone platforms, and has now tracked more than 40,000 actions. This year, our partners at New York City Global Partners have been using Commit2Act in 30 cities as part of their Living Cities curriculum, engaging middle school students in understanding and tracking actions to reduce their impact on the environment. We’ll also be working with students at York University who are designing a research study to evaluate the potential long-term impact of their participation.

Support More Action »
13. We Generate Knowledge
We’re keenly interested in deepening our understanding of the impact created by our program offerings, and our partnership with York University is a strong step towards that goal. Working with professor Michela Hyine’s fourth year Research Methods course, students have undertaken several studies to evaluate various dimensions of TakingITGlobal’s community. We hope to extend this partnership and seek joint research funds with several academic institutions in the coming year!
Read More »
14. We Foster Collaboration
Our Youth Movements program was honoured to partner more deeply with the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-HABITAT), developing an expanded version of the mapping platformto provide real-time tracking and knowledge-sharing amongst the youth-led projects funded by the UN Habitat Youth Fund using a unique mobile-reporting platform. We hope to expand the use of this platform to additional partners interested in increasing knowledge-sharing amongst a diverse set of global projects, which began through a collaboration with the International Baccalaureate’s World Student Conferences held in three regions this July. The Global Youth Action Network continues to facilitate youth involvement at the United Nations, supporting a delegation of youth environmental leaders attending COP20 in Peru last month.

Support Peace through Cultural Exchange this Holiday Season

This holiday season, support FAF’s mission of promoting peace through cultural exchange 

http://www.faf.org/main/

http://greatnonprofits.org/org/friendship-ambassadors-foundation

Help heal the our divisions by supporting  

Friendship Ambassadors Foundation’s

Cultural Exchanges,  

Youth Leadership Programming, and  

Volunteer Service Projects.

Did you now that the word ‘culture’ was the most researched word in the dictionary in 2014? 

Friendship Ambassadors Foundation (FAF) helps communities exchange and share the thing we are most interested in today: our cultures, our road-map to mutual understanding and global cooperation: ourselves.

For over 40 years, FAF has helped change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world through exceptional and life-changing artistic exchanges, youth leadership programming, and volunteer travel opportunities.

Once, when ‘culture’ was just a word, it may have seemed that other issues were more critical. But look around: culture invades every aspect of our lives and global relations. Now is the moment to make cultural exchange the road-map to PEACE and MUTUAL RESPECT. Donate to FAF here.

Friendship Ambassadors Foundation in 2015:

A Crucial Year for Support

In 2015, The Rhythms of One World Festival - the largest international choral festival in New York City and led by Grammy Award Winning Composer Gary Fry and Artistic Director Yin-Chu Jou, will celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations.

On June 26, 2015, Rhythms will brighten the newly renovated UN General Assembly Hall to form a major celebration on the date of the signing of the United Nations’ Charter (June 26, 1845, We The Peoples).

Raising the young voices of hundreds of choristers from across the globe, the Foundation will share ‘harmony through diversity’ in a symbolic gesture of global cooperation – and you can help us support that event with a donation here or a tax-deductible sponsorship.

During the week-long festival, choral celebrations and featured concerts will be held for thousands of live viewers and tens of thousands on Time Warner cable in Manhattan. Hundreds of singers from six continents around the world will be united through a musical sharing – a true hallmark of every FAF peace-through-the-arts program.

With concerts at Lincoln Center and other iconic venues throughout New York City, UNESCO’s Director-General granted its formal Patronage to the concert series to mark its important, soft power to bring the world together in song. Your support will be noted at each concert and in every venue graced by our talented youth singers .

In 2015, FAF will gather thousands of global youth leaders from over 40 countries to build skills and network at the Youth Assembly at the United Nations.

The YA@UN is the longest running and largest youth event on the United Nation’s annual calendar, and has been building “tomorrow’s leaders, today” since its inception in 2002.  The YA@UN builds practical skills for youth leaders focused on employment and creation of new social ventures, which help to build the global agenda for development. You can sponsor youth delegates who otherwise would not be able to attend: donate here.

Through its alumni network – the International Youth Council – with currently more than 5,000 active members, the YA@UN continues its impact through 18 projects in 10 countries. The IYC expands and diversifies the YA’s global, social impact. Your generous donation will help bring all IYC chapter leaders to the Summer YA@UN in NYC, USA in August 2015.

     Special EVENT: We have   been asked to plan a major Ebola Relief Fund Concert, which   is set to take place at the UN General Assembly Hall in February 27, 2015.

Major stars from the   music industry and other celebrities are expected to appear.

Your donation can help   us produce this amazing event. Those who donate $250 will receive a   free VIP ticket to the event! Dates and details to follow.

FAF is associated with   the United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) and has a   Consultative Status at UNESCO, while providing service to the community of   NGOs affiliated with the United Nations. This includes participation on the   Planning Committee for the annual UN Department of Public Information and NGO   Sector (DPI NGO) conference, and editorial assistance for NGO   Reporter by FAF’s Executive Director. This year, Mr. Sciarratta has   served as Treasurer for the UN DPI conference at UNHQ in NYC

FAF is dedicated to   promoting peace-building efforts that ease cross-cultural   tensions through transformative cultural exchange programs, youth leadership   training, and volunteer relief services worldwide

We dedicate our   recognition in 2014 to your continued support and friendship:

Named as the Woman of   Achievement by CBS last year, FAF’s Artistic Director, Yin-Chu Jou, received   another recognition this year as one of Musical America’s Top 30 Music   Professionals for 2014

“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”

Member Interview

Jan Willem Drent
Managing Director
Deane Europe B.V.

How could you best describe your organization?

Our organization is one of Family business/orientated where we treat every client the same, large or small, all get the same attention as we wish to grow with all our clients and assist them in more ways than just moving Freight, as we can tailor make packages to suit their needs which in most larger opposition companies this is not possible. Our services are divided into transport, logistics, customs, warehousing and global air and sea freight. This is completed with our full service supplychain management. We are used to cooperate with our south African offices for over 15 years and have built up a fixed network vice versa.

What makes your products/ company/ service different from others?

We are a privately owned company so we treat our clients in a special way with one contact person who will always cater for their specific needs. Our 24/7 service is a promise to all our clients.

What customers can expect from your company? 100% Commitment at all times, 24/7 communication and support as all Offices are equipped with VOIP telephone systems to cater / follow up customers freight movements etc.
