Today, 30 May, UNICEF launched this year’s edition of its flagship publication, State of the World’s Children. The focus is Children with Disabilities. The report focuses on the position of children with disabilities in a varying worldwide landscape: how do they fare at home, in school, or at health care centres? What happens to children with disabilities in emergencies or conflict? How do these situations fluctuate around the world? The report asks readers to consider the lost opportunities in denying the full potential of these children. The State of the World’s Children 2013 argues for inclusive and equitable approaches in such areas as early childhood development, education, health, nutrition, humanitarian response and protection.

Local Training Workshop, Nicosia, Cyprus, March 2013

In the framework of the ViPi project, G.M EuroCy Innovations Ltd has organised a local training workshop in Nicosia, Cyprus, on 22 March 2013. The scope of the workshop was to present the outcomes of the ViPi project to local stakeholders and train them on how to use these outcomes in view of the ViPi pilot phase. The workshop was very interesting and helpful for all participants. The local stakeholders had the chance to see a full list of the ViPi outcomes, play with them and discuss about their potential exploitation. Participants were also informed about the local pilot procedures and they expressed their interest to participate and contribute to the success of the project. For those interested, the current status of the outcome of the ViPi project can be found at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8jyle4q3nu49tfq/yL-O0fq5TR .
