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.
"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.
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.

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]!
We See Things Differently is a youth led, collaborative campaign to collect and connect our stories, our visions and our efforts to remake the world within one generation. We want to hear from the young leaders around the planet: What is your vision for a better world? What issues are important to you and what you doing about it? How can we get involved to help you take action? Join us on World Environment Day, June 5th for a kickoff webinar, or share your story through TIG's #WSTD Global Gallery and Panorama Sets

The number thing that inspires me is God and His word.I am also inspired when I see myself doing some of those things I thought was impossible before especially taking a bold step in bringing the youths in my community together,educating them on how God had already ordained them to become great kings and...
Students are constantly being bombarded with IT in their lives. They come to school as digital natives and we are their immigrants. We need to teach and learn using these tools, as they are using them anyway. We need to guide them through this shift in education, or we will have a group of unmotivated,...
The main thing that inspires me is Laughter. It is the epitome of our joy as a people and is shared by all. It is the true sign that our actions have reaped positive rewards. When we hear laughter, especially of children we know that our people are happy. That should be our goal, to be happy and spread...
One of the biggest challenges for most teachers is time, and any innovation to curriculum requires an initial investment of time and energy. However, as educators begin to see the value of interactive media’s role in international education, the advantages provided by a TIGed virtual classroom become...
People! People: anyway whether they are active and looking for progress, or just absolutely narrow-minded and caring only about themselves. It motivates me to recognise how we can improve our planet. For this it is great to see the ideas, the power and the credos of the active ones. But to analyse how to...
Education is like sowing the seeds, maybe we can’t see the influence in a short time, but with the small power which can be gathered using it, we can change the world with it.
The work that evolves from bringing change and the passion of trying to follow the footsteps of successful people in serving humanity. In our world among us there is hope and satisfaction in everyone's face but just some people wants to encourage that hope and wants to change it into the happiness of...
My inspirations come from a number of things. Quiet workers always impress me. They work from the heart and mind and aren't looking for a pat on the back. I am inspired by those who chose not to take the easy path. Hard work always pays off.
