(3BL Media/Justmeans) — Across the world, 59 million children and 65 million adolescents are out of school, while more than 120 million children do not complete primary education. Behind these figures there are children and young people being denied not only a right, but opportunities—a fair chance to get a decent job, to escape poverty, to support their families and to develop their communities.

In September 2015, 193 countries signed up to support the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals (SDG’s) for our planet and all who live on it. They...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The campaign #AddWater is a simple, but effective scheme where staff and students at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s (UWTSD) Lampeter campus are being asked to add 5p (or more) to the cost of the drinks they buy from the university’s catering outlets. The money raised will be used to ensure a safe water supply to communities in Kenya who are suffering heavily due to drought and deforestation. The initiative was created by Luci Attala, Senior Lecturer in Anthropology, with the help of Tristan Nash, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy.

The severe drought affecting Kenya has driven...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Globally, about a third of all food is spoiled or squandered before it is consumed by people. A sad fact, in an age where almost a billion people go hungry. Food loss or food waste is the decrease of food in later stages of the food supply chain intended for human consumption; for example, harvested bananas that fall off a truck are considered food loss. While food that is fit for human consumption, but not consumed because it is left to spoil or discarded by retailers or consumers is food waste – this may be due to rigid or misunderstood date stamp rules, improper storage,...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent; disrupting national economies, affecting lives, communities and costing business dearly.

The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and are now at their highest levels in history, which is why in advance of the Conference of the Parties (COP23), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) released key policy...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Michael Bloomberg, billionaire media mogul and former mayor of New York, said at a technology conference in Boston last month that Brexit is the “single stupidest thing any country has ever done” apart from the election of Donald Trump as US president. A few weeks later he was in London to open a new European headquarters, an event attended by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and the building’s architect Lord Foster, Founder and Executive Chairman, Foster + Partners. The opening showed that, despite Brexit, London is open for business. The new HQ represents a major...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The avalanche of stories after the Harvey Weinstein revelations has shown that this kind of deeply inappropriate behavior is rife across other industries and culture. It’s like a social pandemic.

The #MeToo social media campaign has shown that this type of behavior is not isolated, as so many women and men have posted and tweeted these two words to say that they, too, have been harassed or assaulted. #MeToo has been successful in spreading awareness about how we treat each other, whether...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - India is booming: the rise of a huge middle class, a free-spending younger generation and business-friendly government reforms is making it one of the world's fastest-growing emerging market economies, one that expects to post 6.6 percent growth this fiscal year. By contrast, forecasts have the US economy growing at 2.3 percent in 2017. But if a rapidly growing India wants to enter the modern world, it needs to fix its infrastructure. The government has ambitious plans to develop industrial corridors, smart cities along with practical intentions to repair, or build new, airports, highways, schools and...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Former UK foreign secretary Robin Cook’s famous 2001 speech cited chicken tikka masala as the national dish of Britain, as an example of the way that the country had changed, but now, the country is in a curry crisis. The previous prime minister, David Cameron, had pledged to protect the £4.2bn curry industry which employs 100,000 people, to get the skilled Asian chefs needed into the UK. Then home-secretary Theresa May, now prime minister, admitted that curry chefs are a shortage occupation. But nothing has been...
