• 50 years of Protecting Europe's Environment

    http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/policy/multimedia/50-years-of-protecting-europes-environment/view Today the European Union has the most environmentally-friendly arsenal of rules in the world and has done more to tackle pressing ecological problems, such as climate change, than any other major power. But it has not always been like this. Caring for the environment did not feature in the Treaty of Rome, the document that gave birth to the modern day EU. Yet environmental problems were never far away. Europe's love affair with the car was moving into top gear, industry was busy belching out pollutants and raw sewage was being pumped into our rivers and seas.

  • Feeding Europe: food sovereignty and agro-ecology

    http://www.foeeurope.org/feeding-europe-agro-ecology-280314 Over the past fifty years, the food system has become increasingly globalised and heavily dependent on cheap raw materials, chemical inputs and mechanisation. In short, the global food system is broken -- increasingly controlled by a handful of multinationals. This film demonstrates how people across Europe are re-organising their food supply chains -- re-connecting producers and consumers and re-localising agriculture and food distribution in a sustainable way.

In Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, wildlife scientist Tony Clevenger and other researchers have proven that constructing overpasses and underpasses for animals decreases roadkill and improves ecological connectivity. Many animals, including deer, elk, grizzlies, moose, lynx, cougars and others, have been recorded using the structures. Although animal crossing structures have been fairly common in Europe for a few decades, there are relatively few in North America. In The United States, the crossing structures that have been built, in places like Washington State and Wyoming, were partly inspired by the research Clevenger conducted in Banff. To create even more of them, Clevenger worked with a team of experts, including ecologist Nina-Marie Lister, to organize a design competition. The competition, named ARC solutions, was held in order to generate more cost-effective crossing designs that are also sustainable and environmentally friendly. The competition generated many new models for animal crossings and Clevenger and Lister hope that highway planners will adjust their approach to structure design based on them. /// Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Most 10 Eco-Friendly Cities - Top 10 List Many countries and city governments have been taking action in order to clean up the messes of the past. Ecology has become one of the major philosophies in all societies, as we, as a people, have a goal to leave the Earth for our descendants in a better state than when we found it. If we can follow the example set by these Top 10 Eco-Friendly Cities of the world, we’ll be well on our way to sustaining Earth for many more generations to come. https://www.facebook.com/toptruths/ https://www.toptruths.com https://www.advexon.tv LIKE / SHARE / SUBSCRIBE 10. Oslo, Norway Eco-efficiency is important in this city, and it begins with grass-roots involvement. Oslo residents are encouraged to clean up, go green, and create a climate that features better air quality, eco-efficiency, biodiversity, and an abundance of clean, natural resources. The streets of Oslo look fantastic, due to local contributions being made to keep the area sustainable and highly-functioning for all of its residents. 9. Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm is among the cleanest cities in the world. It was the first city to win the European Green Capital Award, and it has a noble long-term plan to be fossil fuel free by 2050. The riverside city is stunning and features lots of natural landscape, such as beautiful trees navigated by cycling paths. Environmental policies are prioritised in Stockholm, and as such, the streets are clean and the urban city has a country-like feel to it, despite having tall buildings and a large number of residences. 8. Columbia, Missouri, United States Investing the time to become an eco-friendly city certainly has its benefits, such as energy reduction which in turn lowers costs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In Columbia, Missouri, businesses are incentivised to improve their energy efficiency though a city-wide grant system. Columbia’s City Green program determines how much energy a particular business uses, and then offers to pay for half the cost of an energy audit. Once the audit is completed, the city will pay for repairs up to $12,500. To keep the city looking great, Columbia has a number of green groups, which are coalitions of like-minded people who collaborate to achieve common environmental goals. These groups clean rivers, restore animal habitats, and promote beautification, restoration, and citywide recycling. 7. Vancouver, Canada Vancouver’s most notable performance is in the area of CO2 emissions. In The Green City Index, Vancouver boasts the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per capita of any city. Additionally, the city’s ecological goals include reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent and planting 150,000 new trees by 2020, making it one of the greenest cities on the map both literally and figuratively speaking. 6. Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban, South Africa These three towns in Africa all share a spot on the greenest cities list. It is very hard to pick just one city since all these three are very strong in different categories. For example, Cape Town and Johannesburg is said to have most green spaces in the whole continent. While Durban managed to take a lead because of its target to become a zero-waste city within 20 years and carbon neutral by 2050. 5. San Francisco, United States San Francisco used to be a capital city of the Hippy movement, but it would be wrong to say that this is the only reason this city is one of the greenest around the globe and the most ecological in North America. This city was the first in the United States to introduce the coloured bins recycling system to homes and workplaces, making recycling easy and accessible, and more importantly — legally obligatory. The fantastic public transport system and government’s encouragement for people to use more electric cars also helped San Francisco to be one of the eco-friendliest cities in the world.

Together, we are the greatest political union in history. The most powerful economy. Together we are the third largest population. The strongest army. Together we are science, health and culture. Together, we are creating a better world. We are discovering new worlds. Together, we are leading the ecological transition. Together, we are so many landscapes. Together, we are tolerance and progress. Together, we are education and sharing. Peace, peace, peace for ever. Together we have faced difficulties, and we will face others. But we will go through it and realize our dream. Don't listen to fear, hate and weakness. They don't have any ambition. We are the European union, and together we are unstoppable. I’m a French student and I made this video for sharing my vision on European Union strengths and values. What European-Union is and what it could be. Thanks to Jane for voice covering my video :) ——————————————————————————————————————— Sources : About the political union : the European Union is the second largest democracy with 443.118 million citizens after India (1.25 billion citizens). About the economy : in 2016 according to the IMF the European Union is the first world nominal GDP (€18.810 billion). About the demography : the European Union is currently the third largest world population (400 million) after China (1.357 billion) and India (1.25 billion). About the European Army : in 2014 all military expenditures of the European countries together are more than €210 billion and the European military active staff is 1.42 millions. About science : 2.7 million people are currently working in R&D in the EU, half are employed by the public sector. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, most complex experimental facility ever built, and the largest single machine in the world. About health : the European Union recorded the highest level of expenditure on social protection in 2013. About development aid: in 2013, the EU spent €56.2 billon on development aid. About the ecological transition : in 2014, the European Union had a negative consumption of ozone depleting substances, indicating that exports and destruction of these substances were greater than the level of production plus imports. About the peace in the UE : no wars between European countries for sixty years, the longest European peace period in history.

http://www.foeeurope.org/feeding-europe-agro-ecology-280314 Over the past fifty years, the food system has become increasingly globalised and heavily dependent on cheap raw materials, chemical inputs and mechanisation. In short, the global food system is broken -- increasingly controlled by a handful of multinationals. This film demonstrates how people across Europe are re-organising their food supply chains -- re-connecting producers and consumers and re-localising agriculture and food distribution in a sustainable way.

This project held between 22 - 29 May 2015 in Gesi town of Kayseri in Turkey. The Themes of the Training course: Life style is a behavioural pattern that makes people different from the others. The statistics about climate change show how pollution, extinction, human's wrong behaviour are destroying the planet. We might think that we can't do anything to change or bring the situation in a better way but that's the point where we are wrong: an average person can do many things to make his or her daily routine more eco-friendly .Within this project we would like to discover and experience all together how to make it possible. We want to bring new ecological perspectives , raise people's awareness and take a new step to more ecological life. The overall aim of the Training course is to bring motivated participants together and practice ecological and sustainable life in a rural area. We want to remember (or learn) how to use traditional methods and develop new ideas. Learning objectives of the Training course are: -To experience a life without typical daily routine and all the tools of modern life. -To practice and observe ecologic framings. -To develop perma-cultural plans. - Re-cycle activities -Ecologic farming, planting activities. -Eco-nomic - Exchange ideas.
