Eesti Naistoimetajad

Pressiteade

Auhind antakse üle teisipäeval, 29. septembril kell 12 Naistoimetajate ühenduse meediapäeval „Kära meedia pärast II“ Tallinna Soome Instituudi saalis, Harju t 1.

HEA SÕNA auhinnaga soovib Eesti Naistoimetajate ühendus tunnustada Eestis silmapaistnud kirjutajat, kelle looming kannab positiivseid humanistlikke väärtusi vastukaaluks ühiskonnas levinud ärapanemisele, kõmuhimule ja pelgalt meelelahutamisele. Hea sõna lisab ellu paremaid tundeid, mõtteid ja tegusid. Naistoimetajad tunnustavad Hea Sõna auhinna saajat ajakirjanikust kunstniku Aita Nurga ainulaadse maaliga.

Hea Sõna auhinda antakse välja kolmandat korda. Varem on selle pälvinud ajakirjanikud Margit Kilumets ja Madis Jürgen.

Hille Karm on sündinud 8. aprillil 1949 Tallinnas. Ta on lõpetanud Tartu Ülikooli ajakirjanduse eriala, õppinud lisaks soome keelt ja kirjandust, töötanud aastaid toimetajana ajakirjas Eesti Naine ja hiljem Terviselehes. Töötab 1997. aastast ERGO Kindlustuses – algul kommunikatsioonijuhina ja nüüd toimetajana, pühendudes üha enam kirjutamisele.
Kirjutanud 10 raamatut (publitsistikat, novelle, elulugusid, koguperejutustusi) ja osalenud oma juttudega kümmekonnas kogumikus. Tõlkinud soome ja vene keelest.
Hille Karm: „Olen püüdnud kajastada head ja edasiviivat ning aidanud seda oma sõnaga kasvatada. Seega olen pigem ajakirjanik-aednik, mitte ajakirjanik-valvekoer. Usun südamest, et HEA SÕNA ongi minu kui kirjutaja missioon.“

Hille Karm on oma põhimõtteid ja humanitaarteadmisi edasi kandnud ka suure äriorganisatsiooni suhtlust arendades ning Marketingi Instituudis turundussuhtlust õpetades ja seega aidanud edendada Eesti häid äritavasid.

Oma värskeima, tänavu suvel ilmunud jutukogumiku „Midagi head” tagakaanele on Hille Karm kirjutanud:
„Igapäevatöö ja ajakirjandusharidus hoiavad mul nii tugevasti „jalad maas”, et minu jutud saavad alguse elust enesest. Piisab aga õigest meeleolust, et elus nähtut-kogetut vürtsitada tundega või maitsestada fantaasiaga – ja sünnib midagi, mis on ligilähedane kirjandusele. Vähemasti loodan, et on.
HEA on jääv, aja liikumisest ja inimeste vananemisest hoolimata. Mida ei saa tellida ega osta, vaid mida aeg meile eelkäijate kaudu on andnud, et selle omakorda edasi annaksime. HEA on näha elu tegelikkusest veidi ilusamana. HEA on toetada ja uskuda head.”

Press Release
HILLE KARM is the recipient of this year's THE GOOD WORD award This year THE GOOD WORD award will be allocated to the journalist and writer HILLE KARM.
The prize will be presented at 12.00 noon on Tuesday, 29th September, on the media day " Noise about the Media II", organized by the Women Editors' association at the hall of the Finnish Institute of Tallinn, Harju Street 1.
With THE GOOD WORD award the Women Editors' Association wishes to acknowledge a writer notable in Estonia, whose work carries positive humanist values to counterbalance the avengeful, sensational or just barely entertaining sentiments prevailing in the community. A good word supplements life with better emotions, ideas and actions. Women Editors reward the recipient of THE GOOD WORD award with a unique painting by the journalist artist Aita Nurga.
THE GOOD WORD award is being issued for the third time. The journalists Margit Kilumets and Madis Jürgen have received it so far.
Hille Karm was born on 8th April, 1949 in Tallinn. She graduated from Tartu University specialising in journalism. In addition she studied Finnish language and literature and has worked for years as an editor at the journal "Estonian Woman", and later at the "Health Gazette". Since 1997 she works at "ERGO Insurance".
She has written ten books (on current public or political affairs, short stories, biographies, whole-family-tales) and her short stories have been included in some ten collections. She has translated from Finnish and Russian.
Hille Karm: „I have tried to echo what is good and forward going and to help its growth with my words. Thus I am a journalist-gardener rather than a journalist-watchdog. I believe sincerely, that THE GOOD WORD is my mission as a writer.
Hille Karm has passed on her principles and humanitarian knowledge by developing communication in a large business organization. By teaching marketing communication at the Marketing Institute she has assisted promotion of good Estonian business practices Hille Karm has written on the back cover of her latest collection "Something Good", published this summer:
"My daily work and education as a journalist keep my feet so close to the ground that my stories develop from the life itself. One needs only the right mood to take something that was seen or experienced and to season it with emotion or flavour it with fantasy - and something is born, that is close to literature. At least I hope that it is THE GOOD is lasting, in spite of movement of time and the aging of people. It cannot be ordered or bought, but time has given it to us through our forerunners, so that we would pass it on in turn. It is GOOD to see life a little prettier than it is in reality. It is GOOD to support and believe in good."

Campaign for Gender Equality Architecture Reform at the UN

In 2006 women from all over the world pressured the United Nations to add the reform of its gender equality bodies on the agenda of its current reform process.

The GEAR Campaign, a network of more than 310 civil society organizations, was formally launched in 2008 to follow up this process.

Specifically, the GEAR Campaign is demanding:
- The consolidation of the existing UN agencies addressing gender equality into a single improved and independent entity.
- The new entity to be headed by an Under Secretary-General in order to secure a higher level of authority for the new entity within the UN.
- An annual budget starting at $1 billion, increasing over time.
- Universal field presence and strong policy and programmatic mandate.

The involvement of women’s organisations and global civil society in its processes.The strategies and the positions of the campaign are determined by the GEAR Campaign Working Group, which is co-facilitated by Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) and Women's Environment and Development Organization (WEDO).

The working group brings together the New York based organizations who are the global focal points of the campaign, the regional focal points of the campaign, and the members of the New York based UN Lobbying Strategy Group.

The European Focal Point of the GEAR Campaign, lobby the European Union and European governments to support these demands.

Join the global GEAR Campaign and send the following letter to the Foreign Minister and the UN mission of your country, urging your government to support the creation of the strong new UN gender equality entity http://www.un-gear.eu/takeaction.shtml
