It’s barely 45 years since World Environment Day (WED) was established. Since then, many countries have embraced the day as ‘people’s day’ with concrete actions in tackling environmental degradation. As a UN vehicle for drumming for international awareness and actions to ameliorate the constantly and negatively changing environmental trends, Refugee Law Project is pleased to join the world in beating air pollution on this day.

On Saturday 27 April 2019, Refugee Law Project (RLP) joined the citizens of the Netherlands living in Uganda and elsewhere in celebrating King's Day. This important national holiday in the Netherlands marks the birth in 1885 of King Willem-Alexander Claus George Ferdinand, the son of Queen Beatrix. At that time, liberals in the Government of the Kingdom were searching for means of promoting national unity. The event is thus organised as an opportunity for patriotic celebration and national reconciliation, and as a reminder of the Government's historical commitment to reconciliation and sustainable peace in the Netherlands and world-over - a commitment that has since been seen in Kingdom's support to Uganda on the rule of law and other peace promoting activities.
