"I am seriously concerned about the snowball effect of impunity for the killings, violence and attacks against human rights defenders." We welcome @ForstMichel’s statement on critical need for protection of #EnvironmentDefenders in #Honduras: bit.ly/2IGnqZy
An excellent example of CSR to reach @UN_SDG 2 "Zero hunger". Should be generalized not only in EU but worldwide. Also extended to other perishable non-food goods ! We will be 8,3 billion people in 2030 on the planet and we should find ways to avoid wasting #food.

We've seen documents indicating #DRC government is planning to open up #Virunga and #Salonga national parks to oil exploration. Potential damage to these rare and valuable #ecosystems is enormous – oil companies shouldn't operate in protected national parks

When you’re just starting out as a small business owner, you want to be in the best possible position for success. While success is ultimately determined by a combination of factors, there’s no denying that some U.S. cities tend to produce more successful start-ups than others. In a new study, LendingTree used data from more than 80,000 queries submitted by new small business owners seeking loan offers through our small business loan marketplace to determine where businesses tend to do the best.

Every year, 3 May is a date which celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom, to evaluate press freedom around the world, to defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession. World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 following a Recommendation adopted at the twenty-sixth session of UNESCO's General Conference in 1991. This in turn was a response to a call by African journalists who in 1991 produced the landmark Windhoek Declaration on media pluralism and independence.
It serves as an occasion to inform citizens of violations of press freedom - a reminder that in dozens of countries around the world, publications are censored, fined, suspended and closed down, while journalists, editors and publishers are harassed, attacked, detained and even murdered.
