It’s not very well publicised in the West but Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a very widespread barbarian practice carried out under the guise of cultural tradition. This bestial activity which usually involves the removal of the clitoris with crude implements or even razor blades and broken glass is primarily but not exclusively justified by Islamic teaching. Most Muslims will argue that FGM is only insisted upon by fringe elements or what Westerners might better understand a...

It’s getting towards that time of year, where goodwill is running high which provides the perfect opportunity for charities to begin their campaigns to try and get people to part with a few pounds a month. At the moment, there are a number of charities who are looking to get sponsorship for homeless cats and dogs, even though there are humans who are starving. Even though these charities are seeking donations for a good cause, it is disappointing to see the traditional Christmas message reduc...

Around the world, 126 million children labour in brutal conditions, and as many as 1.2 million children are trafficked into exploitative work each year. In the world's least developed countries, 30 percent of all children spend their days hard at work rather than in school or playing. In developing countries, as many as 16 percent of all children aged 5 to 14 are involved in child labour. About 90 percent of child labour takes place in Africa and Asia. Effects of Child Labour Victims of child...

Thanks, at least in part, to the hugely positive effect of the Paralympics, disability awareness is higher on the agenda and higher in public consciousness than ever before – and that’s great news. But it’s important to remember that whilst a physical disability is easy to see and (relatively) easy to understand, there are many other kinds of “unseen” disability – including learning disabilities. Statistics estimate that 2% of the population in England (1.98 million people) have som...

Many of us have probably thought about child sponsorship but have never actually gone ahead, basically as the result of not knowing enough about what is involved. We asked Plan International through whom children’s campaigner Esther Rantzen has been sponsoring a child for 14 years a little about what we might expect. Well, let’s get the easiest bit out of the way first – How much does it cost? Plan asks for a minimum of £15 a month which is sufficient to make a real impact although, of c...

It’s wonderful, at last, to see accelerating rates of economic growth in Africa and other under- developed regions of the world. It means that tens of millions of people are being lifted out of poverty by their own efforts. However, the war on want is by no means won especially where young children are concerned with one in five children in the poorest countries still not living to see their fifth birthday. Experience has shown that child sponsorship not only remains one of the most effecti...

Source: http://www.four-pillars.co.uk/ The travel and tourism industry has a huge impact on the environment and the overall output of greenhouse gases emitted every year. Our consumption of the earth’s natural resources is at a rate of 25% greater than our planets’ ability to replenish them and to sustain life on earth…what can we do to help fight global warming?


Event greening can be described in many ways, the most common definition is the method used to put together an event that takes into account environmental concerns. The main objective is to discover new ways as to how the industry as a whole can limit the impact of its activities surrounding events. Sustainability in event management integrates both socially and environmentally friendly decision making into event planning, organising and the implementation processes. The responsible decision ma...
