Human Rights, the Sustainable Development Goals and Business: A Shared Responsibility

Cherie Blair | Posted 25.09.2015 | UK

On Friday 25 September, world leaders will meet for the UN General Assembly in New York to launch the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). One major achievement that should not go unnoticed is that the promotion of human rights is infused throughout the 17 new goals and 169 targets. This marks a major shift in our approach to the role of human rights in driving sustainable development. Development must be about more than just measures of poverty and increasing financial resources - it must be about advancing human dignity.

Music has always played a vital role championing social causes; whether through bringing musicians together to challenge injustice, raise funds for the disadvantaged or, in fact, to demonstrate to the world a rich and vibrant culture that is under threat.

Why Is Coca Cola Trying to Bambooze the Public Over the Causes of the Obesity Crisis?

Lord Darzi | Posted 13.08.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Lord Darzi

The soft drinks giant has seen a growing movement around the world against consumption of sugary beverages and is now recruiting prominent scientists as part of its fight back. Their message is that obesity is not caused by the foods or drinks we are consuming, it is caused by our failure to balance those foods with exercise. This is a transparent attempt to confuse people about the real drivers of the obesity epidemic.

Hey Coke, Fancy Saving the World?

Sophie Deal

Coke released its first global ad in 1971. I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke featured a group of stoned-looking teenagers singing a song of peace and togetherness on a hilltop. It was one of the most successful ads in history. Buy The World A Hope aims to recreate that same feeling of unity and altruism, but this time for a real cause. Saving the planet.

The NUS Play at Geopolitics Because Listening to Students Is Hard Work

There are plenty of reasons not to like the government of Israel. But to think that Coca-Cola are big players in a territory dispute is silly, and to think that boycotting them will do a great deal of damage to the Israeli government is naïve.

The Unhearing Ventriloquism of the NUS

David Browne | Posted 24.07.2015 | UK Universities & Education
David Browne

Rather than cast themselves as the ventriloquist's dummy to speak what is input by regular students, they instead wish to be the ventriloquist, and substitute the voices of ordinary students for their own.

Taming the Beast: Is It Time for the Left to Engage With Capitalism?

Stefan Rollnick | Posted 13.07.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Stefan Rollnick

Although I share many of the same values of those who identify with the leftist movement, I seem to differ in how I believe we can change the world. Disengagement with capitalism allows it to develop in a vacuum, only growing to serve itself, and we all know the destruction it can leave in its path.

Design to Grow: Balancing the Best of Both Worlds

It's a paradox that all companies face. From startups to multinationals, the ability to reach new markets depends on being big enough to access resources, yet small enough to adapt. It's a difficult balance to strike.

We May Have to Boycott Fifa to Save Football

Damian Collins | Posted 28.05.2015 | UK Politics
Damian Collins

We are now in the death throes of Sepp Blatter's ailing and failing Fifa regime. No dictatorship willingly gives up its power, but the only question that really remains is how and when it will finally fall.... It is the members of the Fifa Congress, the football associations who represent every playing nation on the planet, who have the power to bring down the Blatter regime, and pressure from the sponsors makes such a revolution more likely. This crisis will eventually bring down Sepp Blatter, and if it continues much longer could wreck Fifa forever.

Like all the other Band Aid projects, the popularity of Band Aid 30 will be ephemeral. However, investment opportunities now available through crowdfunding platforms have the potential to forever change market access for retail investors by offering more investment choices and opening up avenues that enable such investors to contribute to sustainable growth in markets that badly need it.

It's going to cost more than milk. Maybe twice as much, but is also supposed to have heaps of additional health benefits. There are also significant health benefits with not drinking milk and doing exercise, but Coca Cola isn't selling that.

This Is How to End Fifa Corruption

Grant Feller | Posted 14.01.2015 | UK Sport
Grant Feller

The world's biggest brands should all pull out of their relationships with FIFA at the same time, complete with the knowledge that every single football fan - and pretty much every other consumer too - will hail them as heroes. Let their competitors take their place, let them spend billions propping up one of the world's most loathed institutions and face the opprobrium of customers whose sense of right and wrong will have been heightened by a mass walk-out.

So, next week the Scots will decide if they want to be independent. Let me start by declaring a lack of interest in this issue. A complete lack of interest. I think may be one-eighth Scottish but I really don't care if I have Scottish blood coursing through my veins. It hasn't affected my life either way.

Summer this year has so far been a blink and you'll miss it affair, but it lasted long enough to cause an explosion of Coca-Cola in Somerset. Not an explosion of sales, an explosion of the actual drink itself.
