Climate Change: March 2013  

What do we have to do to avert this imminent crisis?

Read Dr Pat Phair’s comprehensive article to become better informed about the evidence and the impact of climate change right now.

The main thrust I got from this conference was “to do everything in my power to do something to change behaviours and the make the world a better placefor all.”

This year’s United Nations Conference on Status of Women 57 (UN CSW 57)topic has been on women’s lips for many centuries, a very long time indeed yet all forms of “Violence against Women and Children” still exists, in fact if anything, it has accelerated globally due to the greed and selfishness of people such as traffickers.
