Evrard Koffi signed Thank UN Peacekeepers 2017-12-09 02:09:52 -0500I had the opportunity as a teenager to experience first hand the work of the peacekeepers during the War that shook up my dear country the Cote d’Ivoire. I want to take the opportunity to thank these brave people that sacrifice their blood sweat and tears for the sake of Peace. You guys are making the world a better place.
Join us in thanking the more than 113,000 brave men and women from 116 countries who serve as United Nations peacekeepers in 15 missions around the world.
UN peacekeepers risk their lives every day to rebuild societies wracked by violence and natural disasters, restore confidence in people who have known little but war, and adapt to new challenges in some of the most difficult places in the world.
Add your name – and a note if you'd like – to the thank you card below, and we'll deliver it to UN peacekeepers worldwide.874 postcardsAdd postcard
Evrard Koffi commented on Start a chapter 2017-07-10 02:16:18 -0400I recently started my MBA program at LaSalle University in Pennsylvania where I realized there is no U.N association or group present on campus. so with a couple of friends from the MBA program, we decided to go ahead and create a chapter for the next academic year. When allowed to create this group, we are going to start getting more member on campus and participate in the Effort of the U.N to make this world a better place
Everyone, from world leaders to everyday individuals, can make a difference and help fight climate change. You can adopt some simple behavioral shifts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and curb climate change:
Live smarter: Reduce waste. Discarded packaging in 2005 in the US alone released 99 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. It would take almost 83 million acres of fir or pine trees more than 1 year to store all that carbon!
Travel smarter:Walk or bike instead of driving a car. In urban areas, bike paths, footpaths, and public transportation could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20-50% by 2050.
Eat smarter: Don’t trash food. About a third of the food produced in the world for human consumption is trashed – this wasted food has a carbon footprint of about 3.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year!
Take the pledge to reduce your footprint and tell your friends!Sign up
