Launching the Social Atlas of Europe

The Social Atlas of Europe was published in June 2014.

There is a presentation availble on SlideShare for that event. Lets start with the last slide of the linked presentation:

The continent does not appear so large when it is viewed in the context of this atlas, when all its peoples are given equal prominence. We hope that by viewing these maps the reader will have begun to see a different Europe: a Europe of cities rather than states; a continent of people rather than power; and one of hope rather than decline. After all, where else in the world is there such complexity, coherence and communality?

This expresses rather uniquely my rather technical than social understanding of the European continent. In the following maps you find examples, good and bad, of development and progress, not only to the positive, but rather differentiated.

In the SlideShare presentation some of the maps miss the legend.

All of the maps are interesting, and some are actually beautiful, but of special interest to me, were the maps

  • 06.060 Share of Agriculture on the Economy, by NUTS2,
  • 08.090 Have you ever occupied buildings/factories,
  • 10.109 CO2 emissions,
  • 10.115 Forest area,
  • 10.132 Vulnerability of European Regions to Climate Change,
  • 12.154 Net payments into the EU budget,
  • 12.155 Net payments received from the EU budget.

Which ones are most interesting to you?

Roma Film Festival

this night I saw a movie very… well, special. But I liked it. And that despite the hard chairs in the provisional cinema tent at AUDITORIUM during Roma Film Festival, and not ONLY because this 23 short stories mainly focused on sex in the Russian cold winter and chilly summer. The movie was called ‚Celestial Wives of Meadow Mari‘ (Небесные Жёны Луговых Мари) and faced it’s premiere during the sixth edition of Rome’s film festival.
