What makes for peace? Tony Blair & Bertie Ahern suggest it is not just signatures on paper ‘In our eyes, the people of Ireland, north and south, have been signing that agreement since. Because it is the everyday actions and interactions of people...that enable a lasting peace.’

82% of people feel our country is divided, with 73% saying that has increased since the EU referendum. Time to seek common ground.

"If you want to have any effect on conflict, you have to utilize the motivating and moving source, which is the #youth." @ForestWhitaker explains what his WPDI initiative does for young people in the conflict-affected areas.

A remarkable act of courage as @Pontifex kisses the feet of once rival leaders in South Sudan where civil war has cost 383,000 lives & displaced 3.6 million people. They were very familiar with the power of strength but were shaken by the greater power of weakness. #PalmSunday

Every 73 seconds a child under five dies because of diarrhoea. That life could have been saved by a simple solution of water, sugar & salt (ORS) costing a few pence. @DFID_UK is working with @WHO  & @icddr_b to change this #SDG6 #UKAidWorks

#UKaid has helped save millions of lives from malaria. 

But if we’re going to reach our goal to cut cases and deaths by 90% by 2030, we need to work together. 

This will help us meet #GlobalGoal 3 - health and well-being for everyone @MalariaNoMoreUK

The Earth was 379.6% more abundant in 2017 than it was in 1980. Find that hard to believe? Read the HumanProgress’ new study:

When was the last time you sent mail to a friend? Sending letters used to take weeks or even months. Now we connect through email and social media instantaneously and practically cost-free. https://buff.ly/2WF5fYy 

The miracle of progress we take for granted: The cost of internet “transit price” or sending data fell from $1,200 Mbps in 1998 to $0.63 in 2015. The internet transit price is heading toward zero. And new satellites could revolutionize the economy of sub-Saharan Africa.

Sport has a unique power to build bridges and tear down walls, but peace building is not a spectator sport-we are all players on this pitch. Happy #IDSDP2019 #Sports4SDGs #GameonforPeace

Twenty amazing women graduated from MAG’s first all-female demining class in South Sudan including Natasha, who used to work for MAG as a cook.

“At first I was not sure about being a deminer because I was afraid, but now I love my job.”
