(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Ants are changing the environment and could be one of the Earth's most powerful biological climate brokers. The average ant lives and dies in less than a year, but a long-term experiment tracking the insects' effects on soil suggests they cooled the earth’s climate as their numbers increased.  A lead study by Professor Ronald Dorn, a geologist at Arizona State University in Tempe which was published in the journal Geology has discovered that certain...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Women have proven to be highly effective agents of change in working towards a healthy environment. Many organisations with women at the helm have contributed to setting a sustainable agenda through their advocacy and lobbying, creating solutions to unsustainable development, and making sure that other women’s voices are heard and their perspectives taken into account. Yet, while women make up a little over half of the world’s population, their contribution to measured economic activity, growth and well-being is far below its potential.

In both urban and rural areas, environmental degradation results in...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Kibera is Kenya’s biggest slum town, where the houses are made of mud with leaking roofs made of old iron sheets. The whole area here has no drainage system; a result, the sewage spreads all over. The town smells, and the children and grown-ups inhale the bad stench. There is no provision for water. People buy water from water vendors in jars, and due to the poor sanitation, many people get sick with diseases like cholera, malaria, typhoid, TB. The local women here spend on average, three hours three times a week on a strenuous laundry process, which has devastating health...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Millions of Lego pieces from a container that fell into the sea off Cornwall in 1997 are washing up on Cornish beaches in the U.K. Along the beach in Perranporth, Cornwall you can spot a white daisy, which will be one of 353,264 plastic daisies that went overboard when the container ship Tokio Express was hit by a large wave. The captain described it as a "once in a 100-year phenomenon." As a result, 62 containers were lost about 20 miles off Land's End. One of them was filled with nearly 4.8...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Helen lives in Kenya with her husband and five children, and everyday living is not easy. Helen has to collect water from the river for drinking, cooking and washing. Yet, before they could use this water, Helen tries to make it safe by boiling it, using costly firewood. In spite of the boiling, the water is still not safe, as Helen’s family suffers from upset stomachs and other ill health.

In rural Kenya, waterborne illness is a leading cause of death for young children and untreated water is dangerous to people of all ages. Many Kenyans have to make a daily choice: use...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Children are growing up in a radically different world to the one we adults knew, as today most have a smartphone, a tablet, and/or a laptop that is works 100,000 times faster to connect us to each other on the planet. We can access virtually every piece of information ever created, in real time. The pace of change in computing is extraordinary.

However, while there has been an explosive growth in computing, our education systems have largely ignored this activity, and, instead, have focused on teaching students how to write documents. Yet coding is the art of telling a computer how to perform complex tasks; once you know...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - When we think of domestic violence, we think of the physical and mental torture, yet there is one more item to add to the list: financial abuse. This is a common tactic used by abusers to control their victim, and involves a range of behaviours, including controlling their victims' access to money, destroying their credit, and interfering with their employment. Now, economic empowerment programs and support strategies to help survivors find their financial footing during and after abuse are gaining ground.

Though cutting-edge survivor-centred...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - We have all seen the images as fighting rages on between Israel and Palestine. The UN has revealed that one child has been killed every hour in the conflict in Gaza. So, to find Children of Peace in the ruins of chaos, despair and bloodshed is a jewel of hope, as this organisation seeks to protect all of the children and their communities in Israel and Palestine - regardless of culture, faith, gender or heritage. Palestinian and Israeli children are paying a heavy and disproportionate...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - When ideas collide, great things happen. Plus, when we involve young thinkers in this process, exciting things happen, including solutions. Engaging young people to help create social change gives them life skills and provides their communities with a range of locally led solutions and innovations. Seizing on this concept, DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change, has turned to its members, ages 13-25, for their ideas on how to tackle different U.S. social issues. For this effort, ...
