"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."- Victor Hugo. The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21, the summer solstice. Music is the sound of a society, of a time and a place. It articulates the ideas and emotions that "cannot remain silent." This refusal to remain silent is why music has so much social power. To celebrate world music day, we invite you to explore the connection between music and social change.
Global Dignity Day Canada brings together role models from across the country to inspire and encourage students to make dignified, positive, and inclusive life choices as they develop into their best selves. The goal of this year's event is to highlight dignity as a vehicle to unify and broaden our sense of community, and instill the notion that one's actions can impact and enrich the lives of others. We're looking for youth role models who are examples of living with dignity to be featured in the Global Dignity Day Canada celebrations this October. Do you have someone to nominate? E-mail us at [email protected]!
There are over 20 million refugees in the world many who have fled their countries due to civil wars and ethnic, tribal and religious violence. On June 20 join us in honouring World Refugee Day to focus not only on the causes of their exile, but also on their determination and will to survive and on the contributions they make to their host communities.
In the words of Kofi Annan, "Illicit drugs destroy innumerable individual lives and undermine our societies. Confronting the illicit trade in drugs and its effects remains a major challenge for the international community." To honour the June 21st Day we invite you to read Panorama articles about drug addiction and to get involved in The Youth Network for Harm Reduction.

There is so much that has enriched my life, in spite of the Liberian civil crisis. As a child, I should have been watching television; I should have been in school learning biology to understand how cells developed and how they die, sociology to know how social factors alter our behaviors or psychology to...
I am inspired when i read about the stories of people who have made it in the world in spite of insurmountable odds especially in the political arena since I am going to spend my life in the service of humanity, in the field of politics.

I am inspired by many young people that have fought all odds and making big impacts in the world. I am particularly motivated by young men and women from Africa, my part of the world that have been able to create a niche for them selves and could be clearly seen to be making life better for other people.
I 'm greatly inspired when I see lives become transformed as a result of selfless services rendered by other individuals, even to their own expense. Making a community realise that it takes just community service consciousness to transform a community to enjoy civilize living standards. As a facilitator...

When i joined university in 2003 i was on the net, and I decided to log on to this site. That's when it opened my mind because i thought that to get connections in the world outside Uganda i had to travel to those countries, but now i can connect to friends while I'm at my table.
