Europe is renewing itself, will Germany get rid of the fax?
I had already mentioned here that we had started a cool new journalism project. On Tuesday, after months of preparation, we finally launched it: Decarbonize Europe, and with it we zoom in on the hundreds of billions of euros that Europe is spending over the coming period to reduce CO₂ emissions. and stop global warming.
It’s a mega project for a relatively small editorial team like ours. We chronicle the sustainable development plans of all the countries of the European Union that they have submitted to the European Commission and what they have become. As was the case at the very beginning of the European Coal and Steel Community, Europe faces a huge challenge. After the Second World War, it was a question of building a peaceful and prosperous Europe (when it had only six countries against 27 today). Now, at what is hopefully the end of the corona crisis, this challenge is at least as great. With billions from the Corona Recovery Fund, Europe is transforming into a more social, digital and sustainable continent. Hopefully, by taking on the greatest challenge in modern history, a much-needed new sense of community will emerge.
As an innovative person in the world, you must have an idea of a country or a project that we can visit. So I invite you to join me in thinking about it! Send an email with your idea and we’ll discuss it at our editorial meeting. We already have a sponsor 🙏🏻 and are looking for a few more. Of course, a personal donation to help make this independent journalism project possible is more than welcome!
