22 FEB: The United Nations has declared a famine in parts of South Sudan and is warning that three other countries could be next. It is the first famine to be announced anywhere in the world in six years. Aid agencies say the possibility of three further famine declarations in Nigeria, Somali and Yemen would be an unprecedented situation in modern times. 🎥: ICRC.

#TourTuesday: The Celestial Sphere, or Armillary Sphere, in the Ariana Park of the Palais des Nations, home to UN Geneva, is a work of art by American sculptor Paul Manship (1885–1966). It was donated in 1939 by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation to what was then the League of Nations building. It has become a symbol of International Geneva, and of Geneva's status as a centre for dialogue and peace.

The sphere measures 410 cm in diameter and weighs about 5,800 kg. The spherical frame is adorned with constellations and stars, as the sculpture features eighty-five constellations of the universe. The constellations are gilded and the 840 stars are silvered. As his signature, it bears Manship's self-portrait with his tools, in profile, hidden among the constellations.

It was inaugurated in September 1939, ominously coinciding with the outbreak of World War II, which would seal the fate of the League of Nations.
Today, it is admired by the over 110,000 annual visitors to the Palais, through the windows of the Lost Footsteps Hall (Hall des Pas Perdus), which offer an unparalleled view of the park and the sphere.

From @1843mag: Human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney and Nadia Murad, a Yazidi refugee and former prisoner of Islamic State, addressing the UN last September. Murad's account of her horrific experiences made hundreds of listeners weep, while Clooney's speech was a barnstormer that reminded the assembled dignitaries that the slave market where her friend was sold is still running and that not a single member of IS has been prosecuted. Together, they are working to bring the leaders of IS before an international court for inflicting genocide on the Yazidis.

Preparing for our #MUN conference tomorrow! Have to find TWO pairs of everything as usual 🙃 and when some things aren't in the same spot, we have to go on a scavenger hunt throughout the house to make sure that we're wearing everything EXACTLY the same! Just a little #twinning insider for you. Can't wait to hear the discussion on #humanrights in our committee tomorrow! Looking forward to being #modelunitednations chairs tomorrow for the first time! ❤️

"The lives of millions of people depend on our collective ability to act. In our world of plenty, there is no excuse for inaction or indifference.

We have heard the alerts. Now there is no time to lose". On Wednesday #UnitedNations Secretary-General António Guterres called for immediate action and humanitarian access to help the more than 20 million people in South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and north-east Nigeria who are going hungry and facing famine.
The UN is facing a massive funding shortfall in our response to the crises. "Even now, we can prevent the worst effects, if we act urgently and strongly. I urge all members of the international community to step up and do whatever is in their power, whether that is mobilizing support, exerting political pressure on parties to conflict, or funding humanitarian operations". 📷: A child is checked for malnutrition in #Somalia / regram @worldfoodprogramme_official
