How is that individuals from over 70 nations who speak different languages and worship differently are able to “check their egos at the door” and work together with a compassionate spirit to create a better and safer world? Gender Issues Thought Leader, author, poet, humanitarian and faculty member in the History Department at the University of Trinidad and Tobago offers some profound answers through his latest literary work, “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment”.  In 1999, Dr. Teelucksingh stepped out on faith and inaugurated International Men’s Day on 19 November in Trinidad and Tobago.  He selected 19 November as the date for the observance of International Men’s Day because it is his Father’s birthday. 



Dr. Teelucksingh is a man who constantly asks, “What if?”  In 1999, he asked, “What if the invaluable contributions and selfless sacrifices that Men make to our families, our communities, and our world were celebrated on a particular day every year?  What if on this day and throughout the year, we could bring together people from different cultures, religions and nationalities together to make the world a better and safer place by honoring and improving the lives of Men everywhere?  What if we could build bridges of friendship and trust that transcended the boundaries of geography, ethnicity, language, religion, politics, economics, class, and culture?”



“Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” explores how International Men’s Day has become the vehicle for transforming the “What ifs” posed by Dr. Teelucksingh into powerful realities.  “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” is a masterfully crafted literary work penned by the one of the 21st Century’s greatest humanitarian – Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh.  It is powerful tutorial on how one can become a Global Citizen and connects the dots between global citizenship, International Men’s Day, and creating a compassionate, nurturing, and safe environment in communities throughout our global village.



Is it possible to create a world without poverty, injustice, sadness, racism, or pollution?  How do we reconnect the disconnected souls in our families, communities, and our world?  How do we heal broken spirits and shattered souls?  How do we transform spiritually and psychologically toxic communities into an oasis of hope?  Dr. Teelucksingh provides answers in “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment”.



“Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” is recommended reading for change agents, social entrepreneurs, educators, religious leaders, legislators, legal professionals, law enforcement professionals, health care professionals and providers, social services professionals and providers, Fatherhood Practitioners, and Men’s Issues advocates.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
