    FCCC Tibet Position Paper


    Mar. 29, 2019 – The FCCC has published a Tibet Position Paper calling for unfettered access to the Tibet Autonomous Region and Tibetan-inhabited regions. Based on FCCC surveys, the paper shows how obstacles to reporting pose a serious impediment to obtaining accurate information about the lives of ethnic Tibetans. Permission for independent trips is rarely granted, leaving foreign journalists only able to visit on occasional highly-controlled media trips. Applications for these trips has declined in recent years. The Tibet situation, coinciding with tighter restrictions in Xinjiang, suggests that, overall, reporting access is worsening. As China seeks center stage as host of the 2022 Winter Olympics, the nation’s leadership should ensure greater transparency to the international community.

    Speaker and Advisory Committee Workshop: Stress Management

    Speaker and Advisory Committee Workshop (Sunday 31 March): Stress Management 
    Stress Surfing is an approach to stress that enables us to embrace it and ride the wave of its force. Stress surfing isn’t just a metaphor: as the wave of stress impacts your body and mind, you can learn to use it. Welcome your stress as an ultimate source of information and energy to enrich your health, relationships, effectivity and life quality.
    Chase your stress down to use it for development and fun. Stress itself becomes a signal for you to surf. This workshop will offer you a brief experience that you can then hone to more advanced practice and training, designed to develop your stress-surfing skills to the level of a reflex. So, you can surf your stress without even thinking, whenever life challenges you. Understanding is not enough for change. Only persistent daily practice can make a reflexive difference.
    Curiously improve your:
    – physical health and capability to enjoy;
    – happy and mutually beneficial relationship;
    – active and flexible thinking;
    – dignity and conscious value-based life
