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.

BY KYLIE HELTERBRAND
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

"I sat on the steps of the supreme court step while the justices were deciding on same-sex marriage. As we looked around to see people discovering the news, the joy was overwhelming. It was such a cool moment to know that my generation was seeing the love and acceptance that could come from the human experience."

In Making Boys Cry, and Other Ways to Change the World from PechaKuhca Night San Antonio Vol. 20, Kylie Helterbrand, an eighth-grade student graduating high school in 2020, isn’t waiting until commencement to start changing the world. Already, global issues like climate change, terrorism, the wage gap and marriage equality are front-and-center in her world. Despite how daunting these challenges appear, she also knows they’re not insurmountable. She challenges audiences and her peers alike to get started making positive change today.

Politics, Policy and Pollution Masks: Anecdotes from the Streets of New Delhi

BY PRAACHI KUMAR
@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES ON APR 19, 2017

In the winter of 2015, the condition of air pollution in Delhi was described as ‘severe’. PM 2.5 was 16 times the safe limit. The smog taking over the most polluted city in the world was hazardous to human health. The state and central governments, with contrasting policy narratives and intentions, were able to effectively engage its citizens to help mitigate the problem.  

So Praachi Kumar asks: How can policy nudge non-state actors to become mutually accountable for transformative change?
