Today the circular economy is a hot topic, but  what is it exactly?

circular-economy1.png

Over the last six years, the amount of waste generated grew by 10 % a year. It is clear that we must stop this trend if we want to avoid being submerged by rubbish. Today, only around 40% of the waste produced by European Union households is recycled. One kilogram per person per day maybe does not sound a lot but across the whole of Europe each year it makes a total of around 200 million tonnes of waste to be appropriately treated  somehow, somewhere.

Since the global financial crisis, high youth-unemployment rates have been a problem across the world. One region that has been hit particularly hard by this problem is Europe. Overall, the European Union youth-unemployment rate is about 20%. However, there are countries with the highest rates: Greece, Spain, Croatia and Italy, their youth unemployment numbers  are among the highest in the world. The countries with relatively low youth-unemployment rates are: Denmark, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. Unfortunately, the rate of youth unemployment in Europe is about twice as high as the rate for the general population with some studies suggesting that youth unemployment costs the European Union €100 billion every year.

Arthur Conan Doyle: spirits in the material world

Sherlock Holmes is literature’s greatest rationalist; his faith in material reality is absolute. In his certainty, he resembles his creator; but not in his materialism. From the beginning of his writing career, Doyle was fascinated by the spirit world. One of his favourite literary modes, the Gothic, allowed him to explore the world of spirits and the supernatural, of vengeful mummies and predatory vampires, of ghosts and necromancers. This was territory forbidden to Holmes on principle. Doyle, a consummate genre professional, knew what his audience wanted in Holmes: brilliant readings of urban reality from the one man able to comprehend the complexities of the sprawling metropolis of London. ‘No ghosts need apply,’ as Holmes himself says in The Sussex Vampire (which is not a vampire story at all, but a tale of domestic poisoning). As Doyle himself became drawn ever more closely into the world of the paranormal, he became increasingly frustrated with Holmes. He tried to kill him off, of course, in The Final Problem, as early as 1893. But Doyle, of all people, should have known that death is not the end. ‘I believe that if I had never touched Holmes, who has tended to obscure my higher work, my position in literature would at present be a more commanding one’, he wrote in frustration in his 1924 autobiography.

There is no person with challenging behaviour but challenging behavior. We all want to feel included in everyday life, right? On various occasions  young people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, that are institutionalized, have a disability or a mental illness tend to be treated only as a clinical case and have a solution prepared for them. These young people tend to have bleak future prospectives and are sometimes not even allowed to dream, have a vision or shape their own future.
