Wetlands are reservoirs of drinking water, a source of food, a habitat of many plants and animals that at the same time offer space for recreation. Yet, did you know that people have destroyed more than 87% of the world's wetlands in the last 300 years?
What wisdom, activity or advice does this day bring you?
World Wetlands Day
Library Lovers’ Month
Go to your favourite library and choose a book to your liking. A good book can be our best friend. Irish writer Richard Steele stressed the importance of reading with the famous phrase that "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."
January 31 is a backward day! How fun is that? Today, do everything oppositely. Wear your clothes with the back in front, say goodbye on arrival and say goodbye when you leave. Turn your back to the person you are talking to, start lunch with the dessert, and finish it with soup.
Your home should smell of delicious croissants today! Although we call it the French croissant, it does not come from France but Austria. Celebrate this day by baking croissants or learning how to prepare them in a confectionery course. Bon Appetit!
Did you know that in addition to being extremely fun, puzzles help improve memory, raise IQ, prevent the development of Alzheimer's disease, and reduce the impact of stress? So find a brain teaser, be it a puzzle, a crossword puzzle, sudoku or a word hunt, and get busy.

Make sure the data on your computer and mobile phone is safe.
International day of chocolate cake
Chocoholics beware; today is definitely one of the sweetest days of the year. So treat yourself to a big piece of chocolate cake without a guilty conscience.
Happy birthday, Australia! Join the celebration by joining one of the organisations that work to prevent the Great Coral Reef from dying.
Rally Monte Carlo 1938
The famous Monte Carlo Rally has been held every year since 1911, when the first race towards the French Riviera was held. On this day in 1938, in the 17th rally with the finish line in Monte Carlo, the competitors started from eight European cities. One of the routes ran from Palermo in Sicily and included a checkpoint in Ljubljana.
International Day of Education
January 24 has been declared International Education Day, emphasising the importance of lifelong learning and general education for all people. Knowledge is our most powerful weapon in the fight against ignorance, poverty, and discrimination. Therefore, on this day, visit an event organised as part of the celebration, or attend training in the field that particularly interests you.
