I have had to learn to do these things quietly because my daughter needs me to. She is seven; bright, super funny, articulate, thoughtful and loving. She also has autism spectrum disorder.
We have to think carefully about the messages we are sending to young men. If we show them that we only think negatively about them, we risk alienating them at just the time when they face the pressures of growing up.
Climate change is, at its core, an issue of injustice. Those that are least responsible for creating the problem, are the ones who are suffering the most. Livelihoods are being destroyed, people are forced to leave their homes and extreme weather events make widows and orphans.
The Call To Men UK programme is nationally ground-breaking - a 10 week curriculum for teenage lads, delivered in school, in how to unpick language, media images, historical beliefs and their own attitudes towards women and girls and themselves as developing men.
To mark World Water Day on Sunday 22nd of March, the international water and sanitation charity WaterAid has asked the public to reflect on what water means to them through the film competition sH2Orts.
Apparently at the height of Victorian optimism, the Royal Geographic Society announced victory in the field of all learning, with the invention of the 'lantern slide' a whacking great projector with a candle behind it which would captivate all future generations of learners. An early version of 'death by powerpoint'.
Housing with care options need to be diverse enough to cater for a range of different housing and lifestyle preferences, as well as care needs, so that when a person has an assessment of their support needs, they have a real and valid spectrum of choice about where they might live to have these needs met.
While the rise was initially seen in adults, it has now extended to all age groups and, for the first time in a decade, young children have died as a result of MenW. A rise in cases in students has also been observed.
By making the aid budget a percentage of Gross National Income (GNI) it will go up and down as our economy grows and shrinks. So when times are tough here, the amount we give will go down.
In almost any other industry or organisation, Clarkson's recent behaviour would have constituted as several incidents of gross misconduct. While there isn't a universal definition of this the government advises that the definition includes actions like theft, intoxication, fighting or physical abuse and offensive behaviour including discrimination.
There is no imminent solution. Some brave, determined Syrians are digging in for the long haul, soberly measuring out the remainder of this conflict in multiples of five years.That doesn't work for me, nor for the team I lead across Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. We are focused on how we can help right here, right now.
Can you imagine when my parents found out I had Spinal Muscular Atrophy? Especially after hearing the bollocks that the doctors (and the media) say about the condition. Forget about me never playing football, I'd apparently be lucky to do anything. My parents must have been distraught!
All we can do is continue to provide lifesaving aid and push for solutions, despite the challenges stacked against us. It's important to recognise what we are able to achieve - the international community must keep investing in humanitarian relief and striving for a sustainable peace.
In our roles as Ambassadors we've been fortunate enough to meet with some of the young people who have been supported by The Prince's Trust and these visits have only confirmed to me the importance of inspiring the next generation. Although the economic climate is slowly recovering, too many young people are being hit by the aftermath. Those who are long-term unemployed are the furthest from the jobs market and are being exposed to low self-esteem and rejection. The stress and anxiety will be too much for some to cope with so it has never been more important to work together to give the younger generation the opportunities they deserve.
It would cost about $10 billion to meet the humanitarian needs in Syria; yet only half of the funding is obtained so far. In contrast, of the $20 billion needed to organise the football World Cup and the Olympics, the costs were fully met.
