Equal opportunities for education and knowledge

Thailand

Hello, My name is Patama, or Pat. I work and study in school of forestry & environment. Although we are now facing the global warming, there is another thing that is always in my concern. It's the social inequality in education, especially in my country. Educational development is needed in order to provide a stronger foundation for the nation. The development of technology should always be accompanied with the development of society and environment. May God bless you. Patama

The spiritual side of human beings

Algeria

Hi. Sorry for being late, now it is time and I have chosen for you this card expressing the spiritual side of the human. That sitting old man is waiting in front of one holy place, waiting to pray and converse with his God. The world has become coded ignoring the eternal peace. Peace. El- Hedi Ben Charef

Only personal qualities should count

Austria

Hey guys, I’m Yvonne, 23 years old, from Austria. The most important thing in my life are my friends. Gay, straight, bisexual. What makes me sad at the moment is that people judge other people without ever meeting them. A lesbian can be the nicest person on earth, but the bigger part of society judges her because of her sexuality. In the end only personal qualities should count. Why can’t people just accept this? Best regards, Yvonne.

Act locally, think globally

Morocco

The problems which currently arise are purely caused by humans. I think that we need to act locally, with our work, in good actions. Know our differences, respect the people, and don't forget education and dialogue between civilizations for a border-free world.

Know and appreciate your own culture

Canada

Respect and faith. It is necessary to restore faith in being human. To overcome the cultural barriers we must first get to know and appreciate one's own culture, wish to share it and do so. Then we can get to know other cultures and accept them, respect them. To have a better world, love and compassion are necessary. Fight to protect human life and finally protect our environment also.
