Racism
"It demands great spiritual resilience not to hate the hater whose foot is on your neck, and an even greater miracle of perception and charity not to teach your child to hate." James Arthur Baldwin (Author)



Prejudice of any kind is often based on ignorance and fear of anything unfamiliar, unfortunately racism can exist in all races and cultures. Our views and beliefs develop as we mature, if a young person is brought up within a racist family or is in a racist social group then they will think that its acceptable behavior. Racism is an extremely sensitive subject for some as issues such as free speech are brought into play, some people say that its just words. Others try to point out that these words can lead to situations spiraling out of control such as the extermination of the Jews in World War II.

Refugees and Migrants
In today's world people are making decisions everyday to leave their homes, communities and countries. The reason some do this is because they are afraid, afraid for they're lives and the lives of their children and loved ones. Economic and social situation can also be a reason for people to relocate themselves. These people have a right that is common between them as refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and internally displaced persons. They have the right to non discrimination. This is a fundamental part of all human rights.

Tuesday 5th of June World Environment Day
This Tuesday was World Environment Day. The day was celebrated in Serres, by the planting of olive trees, which in Greek culture symbolises peace and goodwill. The ceremony took place in one of the three abandoned military camps in Serres and was attended by some important figures from the municipality, education, UNESCO and by a representative of the army. The camp is usually closed to the public but was opened especially for World Environment Day. It has been proposed that the camp is to be redeveloped, as it is a large area that has been unused since the 1970's. The trees will go towards the goal of a billion tress planted in 2007, by the Billion Tree Campaign. The number of pledged trees has exceeded its goal, with the number now at 1,017,346,104 and the number of planted trees has reached 17,212,965.

Melting Ice: A Hot Topic?

As a society we are aware that there have been changes in the climate. We are experiencing milder winters and warmer summers. These are changes that an average citizen can experience, but what is really going on?

Other visible impacts of climate change include the shrinking Arctic ice cap, rising sea levels, receding glaciers worldwide, thawing permafrost, earlier break-up of river and like ice, increasing intensity and duration of tropical storms, lengthening of mid to high latitude growing seasons and shifts in plant and animal ranges and behaviour.

It is all very well to list the changes in climate, but listing the affects of climate change isn't likely to provoke any feelings, as humans we need to know how these changes affect the environment around us and how it affects us.

What you can do!
Of the over one million species of plants and animals on this planet, only a few such as crops, timber, and edible fish have market values. Most of the remaining species aid humans in less direct ways: by creating oxygen, decomposing organic matter, filtering air and water, and controlling pests. These natural processes can be seen as "services" provided by our ecosystems. So its important that we help preserve and protect this.

These are some easy but crucial thoughts on what to do to help save our environment

Environmental projects displayed in ??????.
On Saturday the 12th of May the central square of ?????? was filled with exhibitions on environmental projects. The projects were produced by children, who varied in ages from schools all over ??????. There were many projects which had themes such as eco tourism, global warming, organic food products, sources of drinking water, sources of energy and recycling of electrical appliances to name but a few. The all collected their information through various different methods, which included school visits, looking through magazines and on the internet. The projects were completed by the children out of school time, which shows the enthusiasm the children have to participate in issues about the environment. All EVS volunteers attended the exhibition and interviewed the children about their projects, but most of the children only had a basic level of English, so this made the task very hard and they seemed to be more interested in us and our volunteer work than telling us about their projects. But from what we understood of the projects they seemed very impressive.

Climate Change: Migratory birds, the facts.
Due to global warming the earths temperature is increasing and is on average one degree higher on land and across the oceans than a century ago. These changes in temperature have affected many parts of the earth, the arctic, coastal areas, oceans and forests.

The changes in climate change not only affect us humans but also all other living creatures on earth, including birds. Migratory birds plan their year by the changes in weather, but the weather patterns are changing, causing confusion amongst the birds, which in effect is reducing their chances of survival.

To escape the cold weather up north to a warmer climate during the winter or flying back to their homes during the spring.
But it has now come to my attention that the birds have stopped flying away to warmer climates. But why? Why stop this long lasted tradition of the birds? Have they suddenly gotten pissed of at their ancestors? Or may this be the homo-sapiens who have done something wrong again? This may be!

What are migratory birds and why do they need to be protected?
Climate changes are affecting migratory bids, but what exactly is a migratory bird and why do they need to be protected?

Migration is a natural process for birds; they fly thousands of miles in order to find the best conditions, for feeding, breeding and raising their young. Most notably when a country gets colder, the birds fly to warmer climates, as it makes breeding easier. But there are many different migration patterns. According to the WMBD website "Most birds migrate from northern breeding areas in the summer, to southern wintering grounds. However, some birds breed in the far south of Africa, and migrate to northern wintering grounds, or horizontally, to enjoy the milder coastal climates in winter. Other birds migrate in terms of altitude, moving higher up a mountain in summer, and wintering on the lowlands."

World Press Freedom Day. How much freedom do we really have?
We might think that everyone is entitled to free speech, but it's not that simple. Some journalists and other media professionals who try to exercise their freedom of speech, have their publications shut down, they are silenced, attacked and even murdered. You might believe that this is something that happened many years ago and doesn't exist today, but you would be wrong.

According to the Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Barometer, it is countries that are involved in violent conflicts that are the most dangerous places for media professions. Countries such as Iraq, Sri Lanka, Colombia and Afghanistan. But it is shocking to see that there have also been reported deaths in countries that are not war zones, such as Mexico, Russia, Philippines and China. In total 81 journalists and 32 media assistants were killed last year. This shows that journalists are under threat where ever they are.

These figures are shocking, with 2006 being the deadliest year on record. But what is even more disturbing is that fact that most of these crimes go unpunished. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists in the last 15 years about 85% of all journalists' murderers faced neither investigation nor prosecution for their crimes.

It is shocking to find out that up to today, 2/5/07 according to the Press Freedom Barometer 24 journalists have been killed, 5 media assistants killed, 125 journalists imprisoned, 4 media assistants imprisoned and 65 cyberdissidents imprisoned.


Anna Politkovskaya was murdered in Moscow on the 7th of October 2006 and was the 76th journalist to be killed that year. She is also being awarded the 2007 UNESCO/Guillermo World Cano Press Freedom Prize and is the only one to be awarded the prize after death.


This is Alan Johnston who is the BBC's Palestinian Territories correspondant who has been held hostage in the Gaza Strip since the 12th of March 2007.

These are just two examples. There are many more who have been killed, imprisoned and kidnapped.

So why should youths volunteer?

According to the Youth Service America website there are many good reasons why youths should participate in volunteering. It is noted that students who volunteer are more likely to do well in school, graduate, vote, and volunteer the rest of the lives. They are less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol and engage in other destructive behaviour. Also youth volunteer service, contributing more than 2.4 billion hour each year is worth more than 34.3 billion dollars to the US economy.

Thousands of youths join in service for the first time or continue the service they do all year round with the renewed energy and vitality resulting from a global youth initiative. Youths will design and lead service learning projects in areas ranging from literacy and the environment, to healthcare, hunger, and help for the elderly.

Climate change: Who will it affect most?
A recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlights the ever growing unfair divide of global warming. Global warming is going to affect regions differently. While it is the riches countries, who have contributed the most so far to global warming; it is the poorer countries that are going to be hit hardest. This is not to say that richer countries aren't going to be hit by the effects of global warming, but they have the resources to combat most of the consequences, so they will be shielded from most of the effects. But poorer countries do not have the resources to tackle the problems of global warming.

So should it really be a balance between trying to prevent the effects of global warming, managing the effects of global warming and helping poorer ones fight the consequences of global warming?

Do not go gentle into that good night By Dylan Thomas.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Lost Languages
Extinct Languages are also called a dead language or a dead tongue, in the last 10,000 years the number of spoken language has shrunk rapidly from 12,000 to just fewer than 7,000. Language is the result of the progression of many dialects and languages, some which are still used and some no longer have native speakers. Languages with no native speakers, are extinct languages. They may become extinct because they have been replaced by another language or because they have evolved to a point where they can be considered a separate language.
