Students Prepare for Future Lions 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 25 febbraio 2018

Students are preparing for Future Lions 2018, AKQA’s global undergraduate competition that aims to discover a new generation of talent helping to positively change the way we view the world. Providing a platform to discover and inspire young artists, coders and writers, Future Lions entrants often solve a variety of problems with purpose-led thinking.Sweden’s Berghs School of Communication, Future Lions School of the Year for the fourth consecutive year, visited AKQA’s Berlin studio last week to learn about a continuously transforming commercial landscape and the evolving set of skills and methods required to create breakthrough work. As part of their prize, Future Lions School of the Year winners are invited to participate in career workshops with AKQA’s international teams.Twenty-two students pitched their final semester’s projects to the AKQA Creative team, independent of this year’s jury who evaluated each presentation, providing feedback and encouragement. An idea-mapping workshop also provided participants with a methodology to help organise their creativity in a practical and systematic way.Christopher Waldekrantz, Head of Marketing at Berghs School of Communication, said: “The opportunity to collaborate with the team at AKQA is one we value highly. At Berghs, we strive to educate the next generation of creatives who understand the challenges of today, but more importantly, the challenges of tomorrow. This preparatory session was incredibly useful for our students as it tested their existing thinking, and helped them prepare for life in the industry.”Now in its 13th year, and in collaboration with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, AKQA’s Future Lions competition challenges students to connect people to an idea in a way not possible three years ago. There are no rules as to media or technology, and no specifics around product, service or target audience. The five student teams entering the best ideas will win registration to the Festival, taking place between 18 and 22 June 2018. Their winning ideas will be showcased in front of a large global audience on stage, and recognised across additional media channels.Over the past decade, the competition has launched the careers of over 70 of the world’s most celebrated creatives. Of all Future Lions trophy winners, 99% are now employed by many of the most influential and respected creative agencies and organisations.The Future Lions 2018 call for entries will go live in March.

Débat avec les participants
Débat animé par Catherine CHATIGNOUX, journaliste aux Échos
Le projet d’intégration européen connaît actuellement l’une des périodes les plus difficiles de son histoire longue de 60 ans. Le vote du Brexit crée d’importantes incertitudes politiques et économiques. La croissance est toujours faible à travers le continent, alors que la dette et le chômage demeurent à des niveaux trop élevés dans de nombreux Etats membres. Le leadership politique en Europe est affaibli par la montée des partis populistes et non traditionnels.Les mesures de stabilisation de la zone euro adoptées au cours des dernières années ne seront pas suffisantes pour protéger l’euro contre de nouvelles crises ni pour améliorer les perspectives de croissance de la zone euro. Une approche attentiste pourrait sembler commode actuellement mais s’avèrerait économiquement coûteuse et politiquement dangereuse à moyen terme. Si nous souhaitons que la monnaie commune assure la stabilité, la croissance économique et la solidité politique, nous devons nous préparer et réformer la zone euro dès maintenant. A cette fin, un groupe de travail de haut niveau a réuni dans un rapport les meilleures idées de réforme pour l’Union économique et monétaire et les a traduites en une stratégie de réforme globale en trois piliers : i) une trousse de secours pour la zone euro ; ii) Réformes et investissement pour la croissance ; et iii) Partage des risques et partage de souveraineté.

Towards a European Coastguard

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 2 ottobre 2015

The 7th European Coastguard Functions Forum conference is held in Helsinki on 22-24 September, with participants from the EU Coastguard Function Authorities, the European Commission and EU Agencies. The forum –currently chaired by Finland- will present the work done during 2015 and prepare the work plan for 2016.
The Commission services present to the conference a non-paper “Towards a European Coastguard Capacity”, outlining ideas for a common approach at EU level on how to enhance Europe’s Coastguard Capacities. This working document aims in defining how to improve co-operation and co-ordination between Member States’ authorities, EU Agencies and other bodies performing coastguard functions with a view to moving towards a European Coastguard capacity system. It suggests common principles and actions with a focus on capacity building as well as taking better advantage of modern technology (e.g. SATCOM, RPAS, aerostats, VDES, new sensors, etc).
In parallel, the European Commission announced today a number of immediate operational, budgetary and legal measures under the European Agenda on Migration, which include an ambitious proposal towards establishing a European Border and Coast Guard to be presented in December 2015.
