Let me introduce the city where I study - Lviv. It was founded in 1256 by the King Danylo. The name of the city was given in honour of a son of Danylo - Leo which means "lion". There are a lot of epithets towards Lviv. The name "Lion City" is the most common.. From time to time there are used such comparisons, names and phrases like "city of lions", "city of sleeping lions", "the Royal city", "pearl of the crown of Europe", "Town-Museum", "the capital of Galicia", "small Paris"...

Recently on 5th December, 2014, we observed "International Volunteers Day" with the theme "People's Participation. Make Change Happen, Volunteer!". Being a youth & a volunteer myself, "International Volunteers Day" was of great importance to me. As I have been placed as an ICS (International Citizen Service) volunteer via Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), Nepal, I have got to learn more about the importance of volunteering for the change especially in the developing country...

The major highlight of my week was planning a radio outreach with Volunteer in Nigeria for the International Volunteer Day for Social and Economic Development (IVD). IVD, established by the United Nations General Assembly to be commemorated on 5th December annually, is about telling the world what volunteers and volunteer-involving organizations achieve for development. The Volunteer in Nigeria radio outreach project on International Volunteer Day spreads the message of volun...

Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a TED talk about education. As a student, I found it extremely rewarding and interesting. I thought I'd share the TED talk of Steve Brown, the Founder and CEO of Ignite Channel, with you! What drives your passion and motivates you? Why do you do what you do? Most answers, whether it is good grades or a higher salary, trace back to man’s seemingly innate pursuit of money, power, and status. Steve Brown contends that these values have...

Hello everyone! Briefly about me I coordinate youth activism at Amnesty International Chile along a wonderful team of human rights defenders and volunteer at a community dog shelter. I have joined all kinds of human and animal protection initiatives for at least 6 years which has brought me to the question on the tittle and endless amount of times. The more I got asked that question the less I knew how it happened. I was convinced it was a combination of factors that conver...

Every one of us is a fan of something, each one has his hobbies and likes things, things that makes him happy… well for me, I guess these things would be: movies, series and books (In addition to politics, ideologies and religions but I do think they should not be considered as hobbies, at least for me). Today, I’m not going to write an essay about a problem as I used to, I’m not going to try to give opinions and thoughts about something, I’m simply going to tell my story,...

Peace talks seem to be the only topic people address when they refer to peace in Colombia and it´s perfectly understandable , in fact even though episodes like this one have already happened before I did not think I would be alive to presence –in the distance- one myself. Peace talk is taking place surrounded by criticism around president Santos, Cuba, the observer members, the fact that negotiations are taking place without armistice, the agreements reached and most importa...
