Going Against the Crisis

PRESENTED ON MAR 17, 2017
IN MAASTRICHT @ MSM GOES PECHAKUCHA

Despoina Polyzoidou shows how the economic crisis in Greece has triggered a new era for the primary sector of the country. In order to find ways to cope with economic challenges, her fellow countrymen are not staying idle but rather focus more and more on agriculture, forestry, fishing and mining to create special, top quality, branded products as a way to fight the crisis.

Despoina is concerned about her country and wants to share "views from inside" because she feels that the media sometimes distorts information and only emphasises the negative sides of a situation.

Despite the crisis, she believes, there is always hope and room for positive actions.

APPLAUD THIS!

The Current Crisis; a Pattern

BY WIM GROMMEN
@ VOL 6 ON MAY 23, 2013

Almost daily businesses and individuals face the current crisis. Not only savers and investors have lost money, but also businesses and taxpayers make their contribution; even the pension of citizens is under great pressure. Societies face the same problems as at the end of the second industrial revolution, such as rising unemployment, skyrocketing debt of companies and governments and falling stock indexes. Looking at the characteristics of the phases of transitions, these social transformation processes, it could well be that we have now reached the end of the so-called third industrial revolution.

Friend Crisis

BY PETRA KAI KORMENDY

"Refugees are coming to Maastricht ... we want to make them feel welcome."

In "Friend Crisis" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht, Vol 27, progressive chaplain Petra Kai Kormendy explains that there is no such thing as a "refugee crisis" but rather a crisis of friendship. At Refugee Project Maastricht, refugees are called friends, and from that idea a new dialogue can open up about our relationships to the situation and to each other as humans.
