When the current leaders of Kurdistan get older and die… Who will lead? In the 21st century the power that is leading the world is youth's, but in Kurdistan it's Old’s. Whether it is good or bad, is a different story. The first independent Kurdish Government was declared in 1992 and after 2003 when the Baath Regime in Iraq was ended, the Region became more stable and economic growth started to raise rapidly, many doors were opened for globalization; hundreds of National...

The world we live in today has a lot of resources to offer to everyone. God gave us 24 hours in a day, and it now depends on how we utilize this to exploit natural resources to make a promising and sustainable future. We are all expecting that conducive, peaceful and favorable environment where our plans can materialize and prosper. I know countries with great natural resources and potentials, yet people still live on less than one dollars a day, which is living below the pover...

In Sri Lanka, we suffered from the atrocities and grieved over losses in a civil war that lasted 3 decades. But Sri Lankans were fortunate to see the end of this conflict in the year 2009, owing to the sacrifices made by our armed forces and the bold stance of anti-terrorism of our policy makers. Five years after the war, the Sri Lankan government is investing heavily in reconciliation, rebuilding and development. We're increasingly focusing on beautification of cities; getting rid...

The UNICEF Post-2015 Team is pleased to share its new social media sites on Instagram and Tumblr! These sites will give updates on the Post-2015 Development Agenda from a child rights perspective. In July, the UN System released a report that was essentially a “first draft” of the future Post-2015 Development Agenda and which will be what governments use to negotiate on for the official Agenda next fall. The UNICEF Post-2015 social media sites on Instagram and Tumblr will b...

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...

To commemorate the SIDS Youth Global Action Day I thought I would write a post about small island developing states and what the youth in my country are doing to create awareness among ourselves about small island developing states and the role we are deciding to play in achieving sustainable development. Youth from small island developing states, including the Seychelles have been taking action throughout this month in preparation for the UN SIDS conference in Samoa 2014. Young...

This is an open invitation to the youth of the world. Being a youth activist from Sri Lanka, I have always been passionate about contemporary issues faced by youth. In view of this I took part as a delegate at World Conference on Youth 2014, where I was able to get in touch with youth activists from different parts of the world, who were specialising in a diverse areas of work, ranging from gender equality to youth-led development. Taking a step further, I have applied to be...


What would I do if I were a millionaire?

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 don't have a habit to speak about things in a round about way, so let me straightly come to the point: As obvious as it is from my title here, I'm going to write about the necessity of the teaching of law to every citizen. In order to lay the foundation of a justice loving peaceful society, we dearly need it. What happens is real and not everybody knows about the laws of their country. Yes, only those who become graduates in it or choose it as a field of their profession get acquainted with i...
