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.

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.

1. Climate anxiety: the climate crisis is even scarier from a child's perspective; 6 out of 10 say they feel betrayed by their governments.

3. A UNICEF report published last month provides some context to understand these perceptions of young people better.

The report found that approximately 1 billion children live in one of the 33 countries classified as "extremely high-risk.”

#WHO_ARE_YOU?

During one of his travels, #Kalidasa felt very thirsty and looked around for water.

He saw a woman drawing water from a well.
He went up to her and asked her for water.

She agreed to give him water, but asked him, “Who are you? Introduce yourself.”
Now Kalidasa thought that an ordinary village woman was not worthy of knowing who Kalidasa was.

So he said, “I am a traveller.”

But his lady replied, “In this world there are only #2_travellers the Sun and the Moon. Both Rise and Set every day and keep travelling perpetually.
Then Kalidasa said, “Alright then, I am a guest.”

The lady promptly replied, “In this world there are only #2_guests#Youth and #Wealth … both are temporary and hence can only be called as guests.”

ప్రపంచంలోనే అతిపెద్ద విద్యార్థి సంస్థ "అఖిల భారతీయ విద్యార్థి పరిషత్" ఆవిర్భావ దినోత్సవ శుభాకాంక్షలు. #NationalStudentsDay

ఏబీవీపీ అనే నాలుగు అక్షరాలు తెలియని విద్యార్థి కళాశాల క్యాంప స్‌లో ఉండడు.

73 ఏళ్ళుగా విద్యార్థి లోకంతో మమేకమై వారి సమస్యల పరిష్కారంలో ముందుండటమే దీనికి కారణం. 1949 జూలై 9న ఢిల్లీ యూనివర్సిటీలో ప్రారంభమై, నేడు దేశంలో 33 లక్షల సభ్యత్వం గల అతి పెద్ద విద్యార్థి సంఘం ఇది. Image
ఎక్కడ అఖిల భారతీయ విద్యార్థి పరిషత్ ఉందో… అక్కడ దేశభక్తి ఉంటుంది. ఈనాడు విద్యార్థి పరిషత్ (#ABVP) పని దేశంలోని మారుమూల ప్రాంతాలలో సహితం వ్యాపించింది. విద్యార్థి పరిషత్ కార్యకర్తలు “భారత్ మాతా కీ జై”, “వందేమాతరం” అంటూ నినదిస్తూనే ఉంటారు. ఇవి వారికి నినాదాలే కాదు జీవన నిష్ఠ కూడా.

My 2nd all-nighter as a #Russebil driver for my teen’s #russegruppe Here’s a (charmed +astonished) USA Dad’s #THREAD of the one month-long #Russefeiring graduation party for Norwegian🇳🇴seniors. Here are my stories from...inside the van!
1st- the iconic red vans. Rich kids in cities pay +100.000kr (per person)for a bus but here in #Hallingdal vans are 1st choice. Old Dodge or Chrysler vans from the 80s = 🥰 #DadNostalgia- manual odometers!! Side stick shifts! “Power” steering! “Power” Windows!
The kids buy ‘em from last years seniors, paint them in their names, w/ a group name/logo, wire up light and sound systems, and basically get a mobile party base ready for the month.

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:

It's not #police record but an act of violence [first, second or many, each holding equal weight] that make you a #terrorist : A #Thread

On 21-22 Dec 20, terrorists Amir Mir and Yawar, both from #LeT surrendered to SF at Tantripora, #Shopian, during live operation.

#Srinagar Image
Questioning of Amir revealed that Zahoor Ahmed Bhat r/o Hattipura, whose name doesn’t exist in any police records, is his close #terror associate.

Following lead, joint team of 34 RR & #JKP launched an operation in which Zahoor was arrested with Pistol, Grenades and ammunition ImageImage
It is thus established that Amir Mir, Yawar and Zahoor were all #terrorists who acquired #weapon and war like stores but were given chance to #surrender by Security Forces at Tantripora, Shopiyan & Hattipura

Our work on promoting #socialmobility in 🇦🇹 has finally been released as an @OECD_Social Working Paper: doi.org/10.1787/1e0efd…

Socio-economic outcomes (earnings, occupation, education) are highly persistent across generations in 🇦🇹 even as income inequality is low

Thread 1/6
The paper discusses policies in 4 areas to boost social mobility:

1) Expanding quality early childhood education and care (ECEC) can promote upward mobility. ECEC participation rates in 🇦🇹 have risen over the last decade, but remain below those in many #OECD countries

2/6
2) Supporting #youth with their school-to-work transition helps educational mobility. 🇦🇹 already does a lot in this area, but it could improve funding for disadvantaged schools and consider the appropriateness of "tracking" pupils in school at such a young age.
