World's first water park for children with disabilities, upcycled Scenery Bags and BBC expands into 12 new languages to increase press freedom

The world's first water park specially built for children with disabilities has now opened; Scenery Bags is taking old theatre backdrops from plays that would otherwise be thrown out,

and turning them into pretty bags. Some of the proceeds are being used to purchase theatre tickets for kids who can not otherwise afford to go; and the BBC is expanding into 12 new languages and hiring locally in places where experienced journalists are fewer and press freedom is severely limited.
