UNESCO’s Healthy Sexuality On-Line

UNESCO’s Healthy Sexuality On-Line

Bangkok, 21 December 2010 – UNESCO Bangkok launched a comprehensive website on Healthy Sexuality to encourage young people to make healthy smart choices.

“The goal of the website is to deliver critical information in a non-judgmental way so that young people can be equipped to handle life’s most serious decisions,” said Mr. Philip Bergstrom, advisor at UNESCO Bangkok’s HIV Coordination, Adolescent Reproductive and School Health Unit.

This English website replicates the Healthy Sexuality: The Story of Love exhibition now displayed at the National Science Museum in Thailand, while offering even much deeper information on all healthy sexuality related topics introduced at the museum.

Like the exhibition, the website is divided into six parts: an introduction; love and romance; relationships and communication; sex, birth and contraception; sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV; and a concluding section on making a personal choice for healthy sexuality.

The website will continually be updated with more information, more videos, and current news items. It already is connected to social networking media like Facebook and Twitter.

The Healthy Sexuality exhibition in Thailand is the first of its kind in Asia using interactive multimedia displays. Much of the content was created and/or vetted by Thai youth in order to ensure that the delivery was appropriately targeted. It is estimated that during its one year stay at the National Science Museum (July 2010-July 2011) it will attract more than 750,000 visitors. Traveling versions of the exhibition are being created to bring this information to Thai young people throughout the country.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
