Representatives from C. F. Martin & Co.® will travel to Washington, D.C., on Monday, May 20, to advocate for all children to have access to quality, comprehensive school music education programs. C.

Fly-In, May 20-23, 2019.

Martin and McAllister will meet with Members of Congress and other elected officials to advocate for the funding of school music programs across the nation and to discuss the multitude of benefits music education espouses, such as increased brain function, focus, and language development.

Fashion leaders, policymakers, NGOs, creative directors and innovators from across the globe convened at Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2019 to demand urgent action on sustainability in the fashion industry
Hosted in the grand setting of Copenhagen Concert Hall on 15-16 May, the event marked the Summit’s 10th anniversary and provided a platform for companies to unveil new solutions, launch new commitments, collaborate with industry peers and partake in agenda-setting discussions. The event was organised by Global Fashion Agenda – the world’s foremost leadership forum for sustainability in fashion, under the patronage of HRH the Crown Princess of Denmark.
It was clear at Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2019 that there is an urgency and united ambition to act now. The discussions and debates emphasised that companies must collaborate now, more than ever, to rectify the harmful consequences of the fashion industry and combat the climate crisis, resource scarcity and social implications. According to new findings in the Pulse of the Fashion industry 2019 update, if the current pace of change does not improve, fashion will continue to be a net contributor to climate change, and the Paris Agreement’s objective of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius during the remainder of this century will not be achieved. The Summit provided a forum for stakeholders to come together and rewrite fashion to safeguard the planet.
Eva Kruse, CEO and President of Global Fashion Agenda, said: “We can solve the planet’s and the industry’s biggest issues – if we work together and take action now. We need bold leadership to accelerate the change and push policymakers to support this journey.”
Leading brands and organisations unveiled new initiatives
Multiple companies chose to announce their new sustainability measures at the landmark event. Highlights include:
- Nike announced its Circular Design Workbook to provide designers and product…

A video story presented by China.org.cn on Global Solicitation and Challenge Prize on Best Poverty Reduction PracticesBy Ritz Herald /
The 3rd annual International Seminar on Global Poverty Reduction Partnerships organized by three Rome-based UN agencies (RBAs) — The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP) — together with the International Poverty Reduction Center in China (IPRCC) and China Internet Information Center (CIIC), was held Wednesday in the margins of the Expo for International Cooperation (EXCO 2019) in Rome, Italy. It focused on the role of technological innovations and global partnerships in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), accelerating poverty reduction and eradicating hunger.
This year’s seminar discussed how to better use technological innovations in rural areas to promote inclusive and sustainable development, promote food security, nutrition, sustainable agriculture, gender equality and reduce rural poverty. Partnerships, with a special focus in South-South and Triangular Cooperation, were highlighted as key to promoting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Deputy Executive Director of WFP, Amir Abdulla, speaking on behalf of the RBAs, highlighted the role of partnerships to achieving the SDGs in several domains around the world, and how the use of technology improves the lives of the most disadvantaged communities in rural areas.
“I’m glad that this year’s seminar is focusing on technological innovations to help accelerate poverty reduction and achieve zero hunger. We need to continue working in a collaborative way to bridge the increasing gap of technology gains between developed/developing countries, rural/urban areas and disadvantaged communities,” Abdulla said.
He also noted that one initiative that is increasingly generating synergies between public and…
Since 2003, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has been meeting the growing needs of warriors, their families, and caregivers – helping them achieve their highest ambition
Hundreds of patriotic people gathered in one place for one reason Thursday night: to honor and empower wounded warriors. Supporters and warriors came together at the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner® at Gotham Hall on May 16 to raise awareness and support for the latest generation of injured veterans.
The night was memorable for many, including wounded warrior Michael Carrasquillo. The Manhattan native was honored with the Courage Award, the pinnacle award of the night given to a warrior who best exemplifies bravery, courage, and strength. Carrasquillo, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, mentors veterans as a WWP Peer Support group leader and helps them in their transitions to civilian life. New York Giants defensive end B.J. Hill presented Carrasquillo – a life-long Giants fan – with the award.
The Service Award was presented to Craig Manske, Steve Grabowski, and Ed Lewandowski. The trio has been instrumental in generating support for WWP in the Chicago area for more than 10 years, specifically in connection with Soldier Ride® Chicago and the Chicago Air and Water Show.
Allcat Claims Service was honored with the Empowerment Award. They’ve raised nearly $1 million for WWP programs and services that empower, employ, and engage warriors in their communities.
“It’s the people that make the Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner special,” said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “Michael Carrasquillo and our other honored…
