More often than not, we believe that we are too small to bring about change or that what we do does not make a difference. That is simply not true. Every single action has a consequence, and, because of that, we should choose carefully.That is why I want to share a short list of realistic, achievable changes that we can make in our daily lives to improve the environment and our communities:1. Carry a reusable bottle and a reusable bag.2. You can buy something to drink and/or eat for...

As the year is coming to an end and we wait for the new year to begin, I would like to reflect on the main message of the season: giving.Why do we wait until the end of the year to be good to others, generous and giving?•Let's spread the message of giving and selflessness all year long. Generosity has no date, give every time you can.•Let's learn to love ourselves, for when we do, we can love others.•Let's not wait until the end of the year to change and improve our lives. Start today, where you...

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to attend a conference by Dr. Jane Goodall, one of the people I admire most due to her calm presence and kind messages.During the conference, she talked about her early years and her motivations to go to Africa and study the chimpanzees. She also told us about her observations (one of them was realizing that animals have feelings and personalities, therefore we should not treat them like things or objects to experiment on) and her program Roots & Shoots,...

Since I was a little girl, I have seen how boys and girls are treated differently. This is mainly because I have a younger brother, and I grew up not understanding why sometimes I was not allowed to do certain things. For example, when my brother was 12, he could go out with his friends and return alone at 8 p.m., but I could not; if I wanted to stay out late, I had to phone my parents so that they could come pick me up, I was 14 years old. One day, I asked my dad about this and his answer was:...

Lately, I've been reading a lot about the different events that are going on in the world and how we need to make a change.Change, it seems to be the magic word nowadays...Growing up, I always heard the people around me say thing like: "the world has always been a mess, it is never going to change", or "young people think they can change the world, but it can't be changed. It is what it is", and so on.Then, the elderly tell me there's nothing they can do, it is too late for them... it all depend...

I have always considered this beautiful Earth a gift we were given, an explosion of art and colours, full of beauty and wisdom.This world was created in a way that naturally fulfills our needs, and I believe we often forget that we are not apart from the Animal Kingdom- we belong to it. Nevertheless, we are such intelligent creatures, so why are we the only species that destroys its only home? Is it because of greed? Money? Social status? We crave a lot more than what we actually need and so we...
