Parental leave

Fifty years ago, Sweden introduced state-funded parental leave, intended for both parents to take advantage of. This article talks about the success of the program, and how the workplace culture has shifted.


Insightful article about energy levels, and how we can develop mini-habits that can help us recharge our batteries and improve our well-being.


Interesting story from Belgium – where 36% of the households are single-adult households. A municipality is now reviewing its policies to consider the impact on those who live alone.

Girls' empowerment

During the Super Bowl last weekend, Dove (Unilever) launched "Hard Knocks" – raising awareness that 45% of girls quit sports by the age of 14, with low body confidence being the primary reason behind it. Watch the advert here.
