🔗Read it here:…
2/18. 📢GOOD NEWS: #COP27 has established a #LossAndDamage fund! Following courageous and consistent championing for 30+ years by countries on the frontlines of the #ClimateCrisis. This is a historic moment that sets us on a pathway to #ClimateJustice.
3/18. During this time, climate-vulnerable countries were supported by the tireless efforts of #CivilSociety who have and will continue to demand that polluters #PayUp4LossAndDamage. We’ve put our heart and soul into this for decades now and we are not stopping anytime soon!

1/29. It’s day eleven of #COP27 and it was a busy day in #SharmElSheikh with press conferences by @CANIntl and the G77 and China, the #PeoplesPlenary, a @COP27P event on Cultural Heritage, an HoD meeting on the cover decision and #LossAndDamage side events throughout the day. 🧵
2/29.#LossAndDamage side events kicked of this morning with an event on Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD): “Losing the Irreplaceable: #LossAndDamage, #Culture & Heritage” at the #ResilienceHub.
3/29. During the event, @nusrat_naushin highlighted that in areas where intense saltwater intrusion is happening Non-Economic #LossAndDamage is taking place: “#Women and small children are bearing the brunt. People are losing their hair, women are having gynaecological issues.”

1) This is the cover of Good Will Hunting. Many people argue Robin William’s portrayal of a therapist in cinematic history [despite strangling and threatening the client in that famous scene]. Still, look at where Robin’s character did his best work: #Outdoors Image
2) This thread is about therapy outdoors as I was recently labelled as an “abuser”. I understand where this comes from my #research about survivors’ experiences in #WildernessTherapy. Good Will Hunting is not about Wilderness Therapy. They aren’t the same thing.
3) In 2020, I co-edited a book with Prof Nevin Harper titled Outdoor Therapies. This book examined #AdventureTherapy, #Nature-Based Therapy, Horticulture, #ForestTherapy, #Surf Therapy, #AnimalAssisted, &, yes, #WildernessTherapy.

1) Regarding the recent article shared below, and because this put me in a particular mood today to see #TTI survivors used for industry promotion. Let's explore historically how direct comparison trials fair in #psychotherapy.
2) The first meta-analysis ever found: “More generally, virtually no difference in effectiveness was observed between the class of all behavioral therapies (e.g. #behavior modification) and the nonbehavioral therapies (e.g., Rogerian,…
3) A meta-analysis for #youth #mentaldisorders found: “there was no #evidence of any differences among treatments”…

🎙️Podcast | #LossAndDamage

Ahead of #COP27,
@NELSON84139702 shares what L&D means to youths
@BakhtaouiInes & @ZShawoo present insights on the gaps, #ClimateJustice principles, and how to operationalise a fair, feasible & effective #finance.

🎧Tune in:…
#LossAndDamage is the greatest #injustice we face as #youth.

We are put aside from decision-making processes. We are bearing climate change impacts though we have contributed little to it,” says @NELSON84139702 at @LossDamageYouth.

“We want #LossAndDamageFinanceNow at #COP27.”
Most of the existing #finance is to:
- address immediate response after a climate disaster, provided by humanitarian aid & development organisations
- prevent disasters, related to adaptation & linked to development funds, e.g. #ClimateFinance on early warning systems & insurance

BREAKING: #BNNPortugal Reports.

Portugal has recorded the above-average youth unemployment of the EU, with its youth aged 15-29 unemployment rate record 15.9% above the average of the EU which stands at 13%, Eurostat (@EU_Eurostat ) data indicated. #Pandemic #COVID19 #EU #Youth Image
As the economy struggles to recover from the economic sabotage brought on by the pandemic, the unemployment rate in the European Union (EU) increased during the early pandemic era in 2020 but decreased to 13% in 2021.
Despite efforts by nations to make up for losses from the COVID-19 period by increasing productivity and manpower, Southern Europe lacks an increase in employment due to the concentration of young people without jobs.

"Just because vulnerable young people are not being held in a detention center is no guarantee that they are receiving appropriate care."
@itscarolinecole @ParisHilton @aosimmons_law @OneLawma
@freep found that “a young patient was bitten, choked and taunted to kill herself," at a now-closed Detroit #troubledteenindustry facility that housed youth “who might otherwise end up in juvenile detention.”

We might not call it #incarceration but the #tti *IS* carceral.
In the #juvenilejustice system, things aren't any better. Youth in #Texas spend all but 30 minutes in #isolation and have resorted to using water bottles as toilets because there aren't enough staff to take them out of their cells. Texas' #childwelfare system is in shambles, too

Are you interested in #wellbeing and dev psych? Than stop scrolling and read our latest preprint on a novel adolescent wellbeing assessment tool! I'm extremely proud of this one😊Why? Because adolescents were actually part of the design process. A🧵[1/8]
For decades researchers have been examining the construct of wellbeing. Yet, few studies have attempted to capture wellbeing as a multi-faceted construct, whose conceptualization may change over time, depending on the perspectives of the current generation of #youth. [2/8]
We conducted a multi-sample mixed method study to develop the Adolescent Wellbeing Paradigm (AWP).
Study 1⃣ An online survey study among Dutch-speaking youth (N = 339) was conducted to inspect which initial AWP-items were viewed as being important for their wellbeing. [3/8] Image

In Human culture the analogy between day, year and life is very precise: each one has four seasons (that are further divided into three periods each).

#life #age #conlang #calendar #youth #wordoftheday #wordsmith #linguistics #languagematters #language #langtwt #conculture
Let's consider the first periods:
• Primanɔtte (Earlynight) is like Priminvɛrno (Earlywinter) and when you are a bambino (a person from 0 to 7 years old).
• Meʒʒanɔtte (Midnight) is like Meʒʒinvɛrno (Midwinter) and when you are a citto (a person from 7 to 14 years old).
• Tardanɔtte (Latenight) is like Tardinvɛrno (Latewinter) and when you are a ragazzo (a person from 14 to 21 years old).

#Agniveer #AgnipathScheme #Agnipath What are the facts to this scheme ? Why is the opposition rattled ?
Or it is the opposition ratted or its a #toolkit from abroad under which the #Dynasts are working ?
#bipinrawat according to sources was the mastermind and the #Dream project .
Was his so called death a conspiracy to distort this Project ??
India becomes a #SuperPower with a Younger Army is unacceptable to many Countries...!!
Opposition is rattled for this Youngsters who join this dream project will come out to be An Indian and they will talk of two things #Country n #Constitution.
The #religious divide will not work for them and they will be the Backbone of our Youth Brigade.

Study from @salkinstitute found that partial reprogramming using the #Yamanaka transcription factors (#Oct4, #Sox2, #Klf4 & #cMyc) for short periods of time:

-restored a youthful #epigenetic signature to #aging cells & extends the life span of a #premature #aging mouse model.
-long-term partial reprogramming led to rejuvenating effects in different tissues, such as the #kidney & #skin, and at the #organismal level; duration of the treatment determined the extent of the beneficial effects.
-The rejuvenating effects were associated with a reversion of the #epigenetic clock and metabolic and #transcriptomic changes, including reduced expression of genes involved in the #inflammation, #senescence & #stressresponse pathways.…

Today marks the 76th anniversary of the very first @UN General Assembly resolution, Res 1 (I), adopted following the 1945 Hiroshima & Nagasaki atomic bombings, on the elimination of atomic weapons and all other major weapons adaptable to mass destruction. (1/4)👇
On this occasion, see @UNIC_Tokyo’s video story about @Anju_niwata, a university student from Hiroshima, who uses AI technology to colorize black & white photographs to reboot and keep alive memories of the Hibakusha, the atomic bomb survivors👉
Anju’s “Rebooting Memories" project is one of many examples of #youth empowerment through #education, allowing young people to play a key role towards #disarmament, peace and development, which is the spirit with which we also mark the International Day of Education today. (3/4)

The first youth policy pitch around Anti-Corruption at the #OGP #Youth #Summit suggests countering
corruption through better information, stronger institutions, and more inclusive civic participation. "To fight corruption in the long run, cultural change & transformation is key."
The next proposal is around civic space and #participation - guaranteeing access to information, transparency of actions & inclusion of marginalized groups and grassroots communities. Such efforts will build trust between marginalized communities and governments. #OGPYouthSummit
The 3rd #policy recommendation centers on inclusive digital innovation. "Affordability, infrastructure & hardware limitations and inequities plague the digital world just as they have done in the past. Govts should consider how to equalize digital access for vulnerable groups."

1. Yesterday, the UN Secretary-General warned: "We face the greatest cascade of crises in our lifetime."

World leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly, where the climate crisis and other 'Great Divides' are on the agenda.

#UNGA #ClimateCrisis #peace

2. Unlike just five or ten years ago, it's now only the odd one out who is not alarmed about the climate crisis.

Especially the younger generation doesn't need to be convinced of the seriousness of our global challenges.

#youth #schoolstrike…

3. Being alarmed doesn't always lead to concrete action.

Nobody can ignore the daily news about extreme weather disasters or the latest scientific report about the climate crisis.

But our leaders still don't treat the new reality as a crisis.
