IAE 2021 Is Set to Break the 19 Million Hits Mark!
I begin each January with a count of the number of hits on the key sectors of the IAE website during the past year. The grand total on January 1, 2021, was approximately 18,900,000. WOW!
“Mankind owes to the child the best that it has to give.” With these words, on September 26, 1924, the League of Nations adopted the Geneva Declaration. This Declaration on the Rights of the Child is the first international statement that recognizes specific rights of the children and pointing out the responsibilities of adults (Oliver, 12/12/2011).
The world has broadly accepted that education is an inalienable right of children. In my most recent IAE Newsletter, I briefly present the idea that home and school access to the Internet and the Web for educational purposes is fast becoming a new inalienable right of all children (Moursund, 4/30/2020, link).
You are undoubtedly familiar with the statement, Think Globally, Act Locally. Quoting from the Wikipedia (Wikipedia, 2019b, link):
"Think globally, act locally" urges people to consider the health of the entire planet and to take action in their own communities and cities. Long before governments began enforcing environmental laws, individuals were coming together to protect habitats and the organisms that live within them. These efforts are referred to as grassroots efforts. They occur on a local level and are primarily run by volunteers and helpers.
