  • DescriptionWith much of Europe recently subjected to a prolonged heatwave and lack of rain, brown was certainly the trending colour this summer. While cooler air and rain have now returned to northwest Europe, turning some of the landscape back to the more usual hues of green, these satellite images show how the hot dry weather took its toll on vegetation. And, as it is World Water Week, these images serve as a reminder of how important water is, even in this part of the world.

Norwegian top court hears case on conscience rights for medical staff

–  After victory in the lower court, Dr. Jachimowicz’s case now before Supreme Court of Norway
– ADF International supports family doctor’s right to freedom of conscience

The previous judgment sent a clear message to the Norwegian authorities that conscience is a fundamental right that goes to the very heart of what it means to be human”
