We owe our children-happiness, said Professor. M.S.Swaminathan delivering the inaugural 'India cares' 2014 oration on the eve of Children's Day. The call for happiness is relevant to all children and transcends beyond individual challenges and diverse life settings our children find themselves in. Everyone who has the opportunity to interact with a child can perhaps consider this call for bringing happiness to our youngest citizens.

On 15 November 2014 the second of a round of two meetings on the planning and implementation of Learning to Live Together took place in Athens, Greece.

The participants were made up of teachers from various grade levels (from Kindergarten to Elementary to High School and Lyceum). They discussed how the Learning to Live Together manual would be implemented according to the different school grades, ages and school settings. As part of the meeting, teachers engaged in a "Visit to religious places" and a "Reflection session."
