Ahead of the International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition (23 August), we'd like to invite you all to discover UNESCO's Slave Route project, an initiative aiming at breaking the silence surrounding the slave trade and slavery, because ignorance or concealment of major historical events constitutes an obstacle to mutual understanding, reconciliation and cooperation among peoples. Lest We Forget.

This is Marcela, a young Brazilian making waves in the microbiology field. An animal genome specialist,, she is tackling one of the biggest threats to the Amazon River basin - the golden mussel - an invasive species that could dramatically alter the delicate balance of life in one of the world’s greatest rivers. Working to preserve biodiversity isn’t the only fight Marcela is committed to though, she’s also an outspoken advocate for tackling gender-imbalances in STEM. “We have a duty to fight for our girls and for future generations. Dialogue and education are important steps in making a better and more balanced world.”
