The Role of Globalized Education in Achieving the Post-2015 Development Agenda
As the world stands at an historical juncture, it calls for a universal education system that integrates the three dimensions of sustainability (economic, social and environmental) in all activities, addresses inequalities in all areas, respect and advance human rights, fosters love and peace, and that is based on credible, equitable and sustainable system and safe environment for learning. A good global education is the step – the first step in ensuring that these development goals are achieved.Corruption Of Power
It has always been that the corruption of power wields the sword of injustice and mayhem. History has proven time and time again that all through-out the ages humanity has see horrific atrocities committed by those who have been corrupted by the power they hold. Now, as the world tumbles it’s way toward another new year there are still haunting reminders of this summers past that have rekindled precious memories of those wondrous years of so long ago.Diversity in Eating Habits
Koreans enjoy dog meat, but many others do not. Humane Society International is motivating Korean farmers engaged in dog farming, to seek alternate business.
