One of the most difficult walks in #virtualracefordignity. You are looking at a ship cemetery on the bed of Aral Sea dried out for misuse of irrigating cotton fields. Once it used to be 4th largest lake in the world, it has and continues to spread salt winds and pesticides up to Greenland. Think again when you buy cotton. It is a irreversible human made ecological disaster and when thinking biodiversity: think Aral Sea.
One of the most memorable walks - downtown in Tashkent, Uzbekistan with the leading female journalist Navbakhor Imamova, working for VOA, in Washington DC. Covering media, human rights, elections, she is a strong voice for all Uzbekistan and enormous inspiration! In 35 degrees heat, we could reconnect on what would make Uzbek authorities stop cutting trees and how to increase each visibility of Uzbek women voices so that more girls and young women can become stubborn changemakers in their lives. Covid took a hit and women here are in a dire situation. Regardless obstacles, follow your mission! Don’t wait to be invited, get at the table! Great points Navbahor!
A true gem: visiting Savitsky museum housing the 2nd largest collection of Russian avant-garde in the world. Placed in the desert close to now dry Aral Sea, I spent hours in this building. Meeting the new director who moved from downtown Moscow to develop this museum further was a treat! Don’t miss Savitsky museum on your next SILK ROAD Trip. On the importance of this museum. The cofounder Igor Savitsky always knew and ensured that Each artist has dignity even if their art was prohibited or not recognized as such in the rough Soviet era… therefore Nukus Museum of Art, also known as the Savitsky Museum and the Desert of Forbidden Art. And about Tigran Mkrtychev: Tigran Mkrtychev is a Russian archeologist and art historian who knew Igor Savitsky personally. He became the deputy director of the Museum of Oriental Art in Moscow, then director of the Roerich Museum. He has also been an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Blessings to all art lovers who put art and people first.
Water is life! I would add sun as life giving in Finnish context☀️ Another wonderful national park of Finland. On the way back home from Midsummer trip, Jane, Ako, Vladimir, Natasha and I drove on a slow road in order to walk on this bridge and get a bigger view of lake Päijänne. This area is called (bear with me) Pul-kki-lan-har-ju ridge - one of the most picturesque places in Finland. Thanks to Ako for introducing us to this park and even if we got home close to midnight, it was still warm and bright! Photo taken from https://www.nationalparks.fi/paijannenp “The pristine waters of Lake Päijänne wash the sandy shores of a chain of islands formed by an esker ridge that dates back to the Ice Age,” as it says on the national park website.
The best feeling in the world is the freedom of a bike ride. I was not allowed to bike when I was a teenager and bikes I have always special relationship to. Helsinki is a green city with nature strolls for all. To truly belong in Finland, it is important to dive in and understand the relationship of Finns to nature - happy to enjoy it all year long but yes mostly in the summer in the heat 😍🌻🌲🍀🌼🐝 My strava app didn’t want to sync my km to atlasGO, so logging it here 🚴🚴🏾♂️🚵♀️🌎🔥
Did You Know?
When children colour, they develop motor skills, build confidence, grow their creativity and use colouring for therapy and stress relief. Millions of kids around the world remain isolated or displaced due to war, poverty or the current pandemic. Many have little to no access to simple things, like colouring books or coloured pencils. They are missing out on the simple joys of childhood so many of us experienced. We can all help.
Global Dignity created a children’s colouring book and poem, "How Does Your Dignity Feel?" You can find your digital copy at globaldignity.org/coloring-books. Our goal is to raise money to print and distribute 40,000+ books and pencil sets to 40,000+ children.
Let’s reconnect with each other. Get moving during the month of June. Build a team or do it alone. And bring joy to kids who need it. THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF IT!

We believe that ensuring the dignity of every single person is essential to combating intolerance, injustice and inequality. Through education and initiatives in more than 80 countries, we empower people to recognize their own inherent dignity and respect the equal worth of all others. Only then can we build cultures of dignity in our schools, communities, workplaces and—ultimately—societies that are more just, open and peaceful.
Everyone is invited to join the challenge. The more the merrier. Please share with your friends, family and colleagues.
After submitting your activity on the GO screen, click on the share button. You will be able to either take a picture or choose one from your library. You can also add a comment if you like and share your picture on other social media channels outside of atlasGO. As soon as you have shared your photo it will appear on the feed.
We don't allow importing steps as the challenge promotes conscious workouts such as runs. Importing daily steps that also include all the steps you take at home is therefore not enabled.
For all activities, the application puts an upper cap to make sure our users don't put an unrealistic number by mistake, as an example 200 miles run instead of 20 miles run. The cap is set for a period of 24 hours and if you think you weren't able to add all your activities because of a cap, you can always reach out to email@example.com and ask them to add your additional activity.
Click on the bottom navigation bar on the ‘team’ button. It is the icon that looks like a heart. That’s your team chat. You can write in there to communicate with your teammates. If you would like to disable notifications for the team chat you can edit by clicking on the three little dots next to the team icon.
The easiest way to find and follow a friend is to use the search function on top of the feed. You can also click on their profile on the feed above each post or while visiting the leaderboard to give your friend a follow. On the leaderboards, check out the “Following” leaderboard to see how you are doing compared to your peers.
On the bottom of the navigation bar, click on your profile (button on the right). To make any edits to your profile name or add a photo click on the three little dots at the top right of your screen. You will also find your stats, activities and shares on the profile page.
Depending on many external factors, tracking can be inaccurate sometimes. Here are a couple of ways you can improve accuracy:
Make sure you are outside. We can not track your activity indoors. It is difficult to catch the right satellite signal indoors. For the optimal accuracy please add your activity manually if you are running on a treadmill or if you are walking in a building. You can do this by clicking on the “+” sign on the GO screen.
Make sure you activated localization. We can not track your activity if tracking is not activated. Please allow tracking by going to your settings.
Fully charge your battery. When your phone is on low battery or if you use the battery saving option tracking services will be less accurate.
Please update the app. We continuously work on improving accuracy. You might be on an old app version. A full refresh is the best way to avoid issues. Delete atlasGO and download again.
1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.
2. Toggle Location Services “On” for atlasGO in iPhone settings (Settings->Privacy->Location Services) and make sure location services are turned on specifically for atlasGO.
3. Turn Airplane mode ‘Off’ and WiFi ‘On’ in iPhone settings
4. Open the app, making sure you have a direct line to the sky. Then click ‘go’ and watch the miles increase as you’re enjoying your activity.
5. If it is cloudy, or there are trees or tall buildings around, you may experience GPS disruptions. Many GPS issues occur in certain locations that may not have a strong signal.
6. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you.
For best results with GPS tracking Android:
1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.
2. Reset network and location warnings in settings, and reboot device.
3. Make sure your phone’s battery saving mode is turned off as that can affect GPS.
4. If none of the above work, please delete & re-install the app to see if this helps.
5. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact email@example.com so we can help you.
IF ALL OF THESE TIPPS AND TRICKS DON’T HELP YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO LOG YOUR ACTIVITIES AND DISTANCE MANUALLY
Yes you can but please be aware that our GPS tracking requires you to have an internet connection at the end of a fitness session so consider potential roaming costs whilst tracking your activity.
Please update the app to the latest iOS or Android version to make sure it runs smoothly.
