Multidimensional Sustainability

BY NAOMI C. HANAKATA
@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true."

Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability.

This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 27th, 2015.

DADA

BY MIGUEL PEREZ-LA PLANTE
@ VOL 137 ON JUN 29, 2016

"The story [we're] telling you tonight is about the first global art movement which started right here, 100 years ago, in the old town of Zurich, in a place called 'The Cabaret Voltaire.'"

Just over 100 years ago, the Dadaists used poetry, prose, parody, and provocation to confront and question the WWI society that brought so much destruction. This "nonsensical" art movement was perhaps the most decisive single influence on the development of twentieth-century art, and its innovations are a continuing source of inspiration to artists today -- Hear from Swiss Embassy Public Affairs head Miguel Perez-LaPlante and curator Yukiko Shikata speak on this radical movement in DADA from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol 137.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday July 13th, 2016.

Creating a European Television Network

BY CAMPUS EUROPE
@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

The idea behind CampusEurope originated from a local student TV in Maastricht (BreakingMaas). During the process of making BreakingMaas a sustainable project, the group of students started to discover other Student TVs around the Netherlands. It was with this discovery that they had the idea to try and create a network of student TVs that would produce a European student television show.

One of the questions they asked themselves is: why do we feel the need for a European student television show? They could have pursued media projects through their local student TV, which would have allowed them to produce local reports in better quality and with less work.

However in a more connected Europe where one sees governments in dispute with each other, and where news is limited to national perspectives, the students felt the urge to produce content which would allow them to understand multiple perspectives on a European issue.

This is where the project is of great significance; CampusEurope give students from all over Europe a stage to voice their opinions on a political, social and economic subject, which in the end affects all Europeans, no matter how far they live from each other. That’s why they believe that CampusEurope provides the essential platform to exchange opinions and find a common ground in an interconnected world.

How to survive getting older?

BY LUDO HELLEMANS
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

How to survive getting older? That is the question asked by Ludo Hellemans. We are facing an ageing society, especially here in Limburg. The demographic change poses new challenges for the entire society. It is not only a challenge for the elderly but also for younger citizens.

Ludo has a solution for this challenge, a new form of community housing for citizens over 50, located right in the middle of the city holding two core characteristics: mutual support to ensure autonomy of the residents and sustained interaction with the neighbourhood.

In 1956, some 200,000 people fled Communist Hungary; Bill’s family was among those people risking their lives to escape. Bill dedicated his presentation to those people in Hungary, Austria, and the United States who helped his family escape from tyranny, and those Americans who helped his family assimilate into American culture.

Would you describe yourself as a thinker, or a feeler? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Classical versus Romantic" from PKN Derby Vol. 3, James Rice examines the contrast in approaching an idea from a romantic perspective, versus a classical perspective. He uses a clock as one example of this concept; it could be described classically as functional and mechanical, or romantically as a work of art, a specific time may reference a feeling, and so forth.

From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines

"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?" One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it? In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols discusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.
