(3BL Media/Justmeans) – In the past two decades, there has been a lot of talk about the transformative power of technology in society, yet little attention has been paid to an emerging digital gap. Though Africa has recently seen rapid growth in Internet access, women are vastly underrepresented in technology. And in spite of the rise of cyber-cafes, it is men who have benefited more from them than women, because males have more freedom of...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) In the US right now, less than 25 percent of schools teach computer science-related courses. Yet in less than five years, there will be one million more jobs requiring computer science skills. That’s why Tata Consultancy Services, (TCS), a global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has partnered with Discovery Education, a provider of digital education content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, to launch ‘Ignite My Future in School’ – the first-of-its-kind, multi-million-dollar initiative to drive computational thinking. It will...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Ethiopia contains rugged highlands and lush, tropical forests, where the ‘coffea arabica’ grows in its original, wild form. The forests of southwest Ethiopia are considered to be the birthplace of coffee and the centre of its genetic diversity. Here we find Yayu, which is a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, with a delicate interdependence between flora and fauna. It hosts thriving communities of bees which are vital for coffee tree pollination. Yet sadly, these forests and gene pool are under extreme pressure and is now one of the last major woodlands remaining in Ethiopia. Its deforestation over the past 40 years has...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Identifying and developing the next generation of leaders is a hot topic. The Taylor Wilson Thompson Family Foundation believes young people hold the potential to make positive change in their communities and that their voices should be heard, as they begin thinking about the issues that face them as they become adults. A charitable organisation, the Foundation was set-up by Taylor Thompson who has dedicated its work to helping American schools foster youth leadership. It strongly believes that many young people already possess the confidence and leadership skills to create solutions to some of the weighty problems...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Last month UK’s Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon dismissed complaints that the UK's response to the devastation of the British Virgin Islands by Hurricane Irma was "found wanting" and that it was slower than France and the Netherlands. The British Overseas Territories are self-governing, but rely on the UK for protection from natural disasters. While in India, the farming sector is in deep distress and comes after the country’s lack of rainfall for two consecutive years in 2014 and 2015. It’s estimated that production of kharif crops such as rice, cotton, turmeric, maize...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –Around the world today there are approximately 98 million girls who are not in school. While, again globally, one in three women will experience gender-based violence in her lifetime and in the developing world, one in seven girls are married before their 15th birthday, with some child brides as young as eight or nine. Every year more than 287,000 women, with 99% of them living in developing countries, die from pregnancy and childbirth-related complications. And the statistics go on…women make up more than 40% of the agriculture labour force, yet only 3 to 20% are landholders. In Africa, women-...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –In recent years, cholera has afflicted at least 770,000 Haitians, claiming over 9,200 lives. The Haitian epidemic alone resulted in an 85 percent increase in the number of cholera cases worldwide. It’s a disease that spreads through drinking water or food contaminated by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae; large epidemics often stem from water supplies contaminated by fecal matter. Yet, ironically, cholera is a preventable and easily treatable disease. But it presents a huge threat in developing...

Plastic fibers are flowing out of taps from New York to New Delhi, according to this exclusive study. More than 80% of the samples collected on five continents tested positive for the presence of plastic fibers, known as microplastics—tiny plastic fibers and fragments which have infested...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Marketing has gone through some major changes in recent years, driven by consumer expectations about how businesses should behave. It’s no longer about getting people to like your products, it’s about getting them to love your entire company. The days of brand image where you could say one thing and do another are over. The job for companies now is to build brands that people can really believe in and want. People want to see evidence of a brand committing to a purpose, not just carrying off a one-off-stunt. And if a brand is supporting a particular purpose, they should be in it for the long term. This is called brand purpose.
