10th Anniversary of the Euro

Loading...
On 1 January 2009, the euro will be ten years old. Like the process of European integration as a whole, Economic and Monetary Union was a simultaneously visionary yet pragmatic project. A major step towards fulfilling the ideal of an "ever closer union" among the peoples of Europe, it was achieved through close co-ordination and convergence of economic policies within the EU, and careful technical preparations. How did it all happen? What obstacles had to be overcome? How was the € symbol chosen and how were the designs of the coins and banknotes selected? Who organised the biggest cash changeover in history? These are some of the questions addressed in this unique 26-minute documentary. It also shows how, after ten years, Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) has brought significant [...]

20% Renewable Energy by 2020

Loading...
The European Union has set itself the goal of raising the share of renewable energy sources in the final overall energy consumption of the Union from 8.5% in 2005 to 20% in 2020. This is an ambitious objective, but it is also a necessary contribution to the global fight against climate change and towards better control over our energy dependence. Governments have a crucial role to play through their good example and their support. But each individual can also help to achieve this objective. The various uses for renewable energy sources are examined: electricity for wind and hydraulic energies; electricity or heat for geothermal and solar energies; multiple applications: electricity, heat, and biofuel for biomass, the "Sleeping Giant".

Bridging Worlds: From Girmitya to Government, the Journey of Indians in Mauritius

Loading...
The social fabric of Mauritius is premised on a very strong conscious sense of multiculturalism. The Indian Diaspora is a majority in Mauritius and mainly comprises the descendants of the Girmitya's or the indentured labourers who migrated, voluntarily and involuntarily, to Mauritius during the colonial era. In a self-conscious effort to forge an inclusive all Mauritian identity, the Indian Diaspora chooses to call themselves Mauritians and not Indians. However, this hasn't entailed a process of rejection of their ancestral identity and culture but rather a celebration of it by it's integration with Creolean and Chines cultures.
