Recognizing Youth Labor

We can see an immense number of youth in front of the Royal Palace museum every day. Not to visit the museum but to apply for a passport at the passport division office, ministry of foreign affairs.

This signifies what may become a shift in fiscal and monetary policy across Europe and beyond.

A fossil fuel free world should be front and centre for us all in 2015

The Lima climate talks did not go far enough to engender confidence for an ambitious global pact in Paris, but it has pulled negotiations back from the brink of collapse.
