World Food Day

World Food Day is a day of action against hunger, where people come together to declare their commitment to eradicate hunger. When it comes to hunger, the only acceptable number in the world is zero.

Established by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has been observed since 1979 in almost every country by millions, including organizations that are concerned with food security, World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.

Here are some food-saving tips that you can implement in your daily lives.

1. Cook only what you can eat! That way, you not only reduce waste, you also save money!

2. When organizing gatherings and parties, please try to prepare appropriate amount of food so as to avoid wastage.

3. Before ordering, consider if you can finish all the food. Over-ordering is a common mistake that we all make!

*NEW* Team Building - Colourblind Activity

COLOURBLIND® was developed in 1991 for training Air Traffic Controllers in Great Britain — where team communication is fundamental to success and where absolutely no margin for error, misunderstanding or ambiguity can be tolerated. Since then, COLOURBLIND has been used worldwide across languages, cultures and business backgrounds, to focus on the fundamental skills of great two-way communication and the achievement of shared meaning. It is also used to explore team problem-solving, team understanding of abstract concepts and to explore team culture.

Wearing blindfolds to ensure total dependence upon the quality of their verbal communication, and holding a collection of small, irregular, coloured plastic shapes, a group works together to gather information that will allow them to solve a puzzle. The size of the group (between 4 and 28) demands different types of skill: information and group management, effective listening and questioning, strong chairing skills, the ability to clarify and summarize and the need for feedback to ensure understanding.


We can facilitate this activity for you either as a stand alone activity or part of a workshop.

Colourblind Pac

We would love to share the benefits and rewards of this activity with you and your teams.

Learning at Work Week 18th -24th May

Learning at Work Week is an annual awareness campaign organised by the Campaign for Learning since 1999. Learning at Work Week (which was formerly Learning at Work Day) aims to put the spotlight on the importance and benefits of learning and development. It promotes an inclusive approach and supports the extension of opportunities to learn to all employees, especially those who may not currently participate for reasons that may range from personal barriers to historic organisational structures that focus development on particular staff.
