Esteem for Switzerland

Swiss Watching book about SwitzerlandIt’s not difficult to give esteem to a country like Switzerland. For me it isn’t. I was born in Switzerland and lived there most of my years. At first glance it seems obvious that somebody gives esteem to his home country.

But by knowing the country and its people so well, it might just be the opposite. Well, it isn’t. I give easily and full-heartedly esteem to Switzerland and invite you to discover this country so you can give esteem too.

Esteem for beekeepers

Beekeepers HandbookWe enjoy honey often without thinking about the work that goes into making it.

Many of us don’t have the opportunity to visit a beekeeper personally in order to buy his honey.  In most of the towns there are farmer’s markets where we can purchase honey directly from beekeepers to show our esteem toward their precious and “sweet” work.

Esteem for World Habitat Day

There are numerous annual World Days designated by the United Nations to raise awareness for different themes and problems in our world. Today we want to give esteem to World Habitat Day which will be held on October 4, the first Monday of the month of October.

On Oct. 4, 2010, in recognition of World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity will raise awareness of the need for improved shelter and highlight Habitat’s priorities: the worldwide connection between human health and housing, and, in the United States, neighborhood revitalization. These themes echo the United Nations’ chosen theme for 2010 for events in the host city of Shanghai, China and the rest of the world: “Better City, Better Life.”

Habitat for Humanity hopes that by raising awareness and advocating for universal decent housing we can dismantle and alter the systems that allow for poverty housing and make an affordable, decent place to live a reality for all.

By giving public attention to World Habitat Day we give esteem toward housing generally and in our neighborhood.  We give esteem to the fact that housing improves health, has a positive impact on children and strengthens communities.
