Today is Earth Overshoot Day in 2014. This means that humanity has consumed in almost 8 months what the earth could produce in 1 year. So it would be necessary for us to have an-Earth-and-a -half to sustain the 7 billion-population of our planet. Or, to be more clear, our Earth needs 1 year and 4 months to renew the resources we used in 1 year. As you may expect, this day has occurred sooner and sooner each year. If in 1990 it was December, 24 years later it is August. Imag...

When we are children, a lot of us grow up seeing poverty if not being a victim of it. As we step into adolescence, we all want to change the world into an ideal one. As we grow older, the fire of youth begins to cool down. And at last, one sits in the old age corner of life hoping for some change. It takes a brave heart to change the cycle above and actually bring change. It takes a intelligent mind to know that to choose not to litter is a global initiative on its own. Today...

I want to talk to you today about taking action and making changes. We all know most of the problems we are confronted with, but we never do anything about it. Why? Maybe because we weren’t taught how to make changes and so we can’t see where they can take place or/and what we actually can do. This way, we end up frustrated and disappointed with humanity, not even imagining what we can do to heal the wounds it created. But lately I found a possible solution to this issue,...

There is a dream in my heart: dream to help less fortunate children when I grow up and do it myself. I was born with all the facilities. I did not have any trouble of building my esteem fulfilling my needs. Now I have grown up. I can see the world. When I see the word, one thing has stopped in my heart. When I was a child, I had all my basic needs fulfilled. I did not have any trouble finding food, clothing or shelter. But there are thousands of children who do not have the child...

That's the kind of question, you don't get often. Well, i have seen it; and how the firmament, with gaudy clouds and safe havens made a home for man. How a nation, as mighty as fate, worked in peace. How employers revised no preferential treatment; how schools were built and laid on transparent education, and how girls ''ill-fated right'', to education and health care became a thing of the past. The world is going to change soon, but when? Some may ask. The issue is, we're the CHANGE! The gover...

Taking action to bring about change, a group of media nomads took the initiative to put waste bins at different locations at Kuenselphodrang in Thimphu, where waste management was increasingly becoming an issue.

That’s a very difficult question as there are so many problems that I would like to solve. At first, I thought of what discourages me most in my life and of what injustice I see. And I saw the old people around that are just disrespected and who aren’t treated fairly. It makes my heart beat fast and the feeling that I can’t take all the pain off their faces makes me grit my teeth. Then what came in my mind were the wars and violence that had been staying with us for the entir...

I just want to share my reaction towards Education in Africa; I think it would be excellent, if the UN invested in the field of education to provide first class universities in each developing country in Africa. This initiative would permit young Africans to possess or deliver their expectations. It would also discourage young people travelling to the Diaspora. If Africa has massive a number of well educated students then the future will be bright and the challenges in Africa will...

In this modern 21st century, money has become the part of human life. Money in the world is a factor for friendship or enemity; co-operation or war as well as development & destruction too. Money has become the symbol for status & power. Really, money is an important part of human life if we use it properly because the negative aspects about money such as - enemies, war, destruction, or discrimination occur because of human ego & human greed, not all itself by money....
