As a result of the war in Ukraine, millions of Ukrainian children have been scattered around Europe. These young refugees have seen their education heavily disrupted, with only between 30 and 50 percent of them enrolled in schools in their host countries. NGOs such as Junior Achievement (JA) Europe and UNICEF have teamed up to help offer 1.9 million hours of training and education over the course of the last year across 14 countries. Charles Pellegrin talks to Salvatore Nigro, the CEO of JA Europe.

Also in the programme:

  • The recurrence of extreme flooding in Brazil is making it harder and harder to run a business, underlining the devastating economic impact of climate change. Andrew Hilliar takes a look at how businesses are coping.

  • And in neighbouring Argentina, President Javier Milei’s libertarian cost-cutting policies are forcing soup kitchens to clean out their pantries. Our correspondents Mathilde Guillaume and Matis Musa show us how that’s impacted the country’s poor – a population that’s seen its ranks grow in the past few years.
