Freedom is participation!

As european citizens, we all have the responsibility to take care of the EU and contribute to its success, development and improvement.  The EU is not only an International Organization of States, it is a political and economical union based on the common interests, necessities, rights and obligations of all their citizens. It has been created to generate services and to manage and solve common problems of the European States in order to offer better life conditions to the citizens of this geopolitical area.  For this reason, the europeans have inherited the duty to participate actively towards the growth of the EU.  We are required to exercise our rights such as voting in the EU elections, to invest in its […]

Envelhecimento dos professores

Monitor da Educação e da Formação de 2019 salienta também que “o investimento na modernização das infra-estruturas é insuficiente, em especial, na educação e no acolhimento na primeira infância nas zonas metropolitanas”. O envelhecimento da população docente é um problema identificado em Portugal no Monitor da Educação e da Formação de 2019, divulgado esta quinta-feira pela Comissão Europeia, que destaca ainda a “elevada proporção de pessoal não permanente”. “Os professores estão satisfeitos com o seu trabalho, porém, subsistem desafios tais como o envelhecimento da população docente, a elevada proporção de pessoal não permanente e as lacunas na integração e no desenvolvimento profissional contínuo”, lê-se na ficha de avaliação de Portugal. O relatório salienta também que “o investimento na modernização das […]

Citizen of the EU

I’m proud and happy to be part of EU. Finland joined the EU in 1995 together with Sweden and Austria. It gives me so many opportunities, one of them, which I’m experiencing right now: the European voluntary service. What can I do to help the EU to survive and grow better? An obvious way is voting. It’s important to vote in your own country’s elections, and in EU elections. Decisions and changes made in one country might lead to other countries making the same kind of changes, in better direction. What I really like about EU, is that the borders are open. It makes travelling easy, and motivates me to travel more and see the world. That’s how EU brings […]

What can I do for the EU?

In these times it is so important to be a part of our society and to participate in the European Union. But what can we do for the European Union? At first, we can vote. All citizens of the European Union have a suffrage and we have to use it. Everyone can complain again about the politic of the EU but you can be an active part of it. And I think that most people in Germany know this. Because the voter turnout was 61,4 % in Germany for the elections to the European Parliament in 2019. And I was surprised that only 10.9% of the German voted for right populists. So, I think we are doing well in Germany. […]

Grande Adria, o continente perdido

Há 240 milhões de anos separou-se do mega continente Gondwana; há 100 milhões de anos começou a colidir contra o sul do continente europeu. Quebrou-se e afundou-se. Restam apenas algumas rochas à superfície para contar a sua história. Depois de uma longa viagem pela história geológica da região do Mediterrâneo, uma equipa de investigadores conseguiu descobrir um continente “perdido”, actualmente enterrado sob os pés do Sul da Europa. Foi baptizado “Grande Adria” e, há 140 milhões de anos, tinha o tamanho da Gronelândia. Disponibilizado online no início deste mês pela revista científica Gondwana Research, este é o resultado de mais de dez anos de estudo de uma equipa formada por investigadores de vários países. Foi uma “grande quantidade de trabalho”, […]

A Europe of my grandchildren

How can we ensure the future of the European Project in the coming decades? Firstly, I doubt that there will be a European Project for my grandchildren (if I have any at all?) The problem is divided into certain reasons of why there might not be a future. If I were to have grandchildren and they were British citizens (unless I marry a someone from the EU 27 or if my children marry someone from the EU) then I do not think they will have access to European Citizenship. Brexit is the reason for this. My grandchildren would not be concerned necessarily with the European project because I believe that the UK by my estimations and how things are going […]

The future of Europe

Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity’. So said Robert Schuman in his famous declaration, launching the European integration project on 9 May 1950. Almost 70 years on, his words are as true as ever. The solidarity between Europe’s people and nations must constantly be adapted to deal with the new challenges posed by a changing world. What can I do for the future of the European Union to survive and grow in the coming decades? What can I do, as a member and citizen of the European Union that at the time of emerging denominations such as the […]

An Europe for the next generations

With Brexit, the refugees all over Europe and the climate change big things are happening as I write.  The next Elections to the European Parliament are held from the 23rd till the 26th of May 2019. Especially, at the moment it is really important to go voting.  To create a Europe where we would like to see our grandchildren grow it is urgent to go to these elections. But not only vote which is an important task what everyone of us should to, but also to start thinking about the environment. People of Europe have one of the biggest ecological footprints all over the world. Something, what we shouldn’t be proud of. It would not be hard to reduce that! […]

Sonia Delaunay

Her art is remarkable, especially the first period of her work with this kind of cubism, it is even more astonishing if you keep in mind that this was painted before the art of Mondrian.

Beksinski (1929-2005)

“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams” – Zdzislaw Beksinski Beksinski was a Polish painter, photographer and sculptor. He studied architecture in Kraków and had no formal training as an artist. He specializes in the field of magic realism and dystopian surrealism. He painted in a baroque and a gothic manner with his trademark precision. The first period of his work incorporates expressionistic colors with a strong style of utopian realism and a surreal architecture. The second period presents more abstract style. An exhibition in Warsaw in 1964 was his first major success – all the paintings were sold. Soon he became a leading figure in the contemporary Polish art. From the late […]

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea is a basque painter and sculptor. He began his relationship with painting in a self-taught way (at age 16 he made his first exhibition) and in 1948 the Council of Biscay granted him a scholarship, so he could move to Madrid to continue his studies in the workshop of Daniel Vázquez Díaz, until 1955. With him he made his first steps into Cubism. In 1950 he met another artist who had great influence on his production and his artistic mentality, the Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza; with him he was introduced to the division and analysis of the space characteristic from constructivism. He also learned from Oteiza the mentality of joint artistic creation, where numerous artists and different […]
