Good Friday - Contemplating Modern Indifference

Good Friday - Contemplating Modern Indifference | OneEurope | Scoop.it
Poverty, deprivation and social exclusion are all on the rise in Europe. This Easter let's reflect on what each of us can do to help those in need.
Ivan Botoucharov's insight:

Indifference is indeed one factor which is costing many lives – both literally and metaphorically. The rate of suicide in Europe rose by 6.5% during the Recession. Statistics referring to individual countries point to a similar rise. This is a worrying trend which merits further studies and policy action.

The rise in individuals who are at risk of poverty and social exclusion is equally worrying. It is estimated that 120 million individuals – 24% of the European Union’s population – are at risk from poverty and social exclusion.

Some statistics published by the EU expand on this worrying trend; 9% live in severe material deprivation and are unable to meet unexpected expenses, 10% live in households where no one has a job and some communities are more at risk.

ItisMadeinEurope.com is an online platform featuring outstanding, high quality goods from across Europe. It is a testament to European creativity, ingenuity and skills.
Ivan Botoucharov's insight:

All countries and regions have a "Buy Local" campaign. 

The EU should also create a "Buy European" one, and encourage European craftsmen, artists and engineers.

This would boost the economy, create jobs, be good for the environment and ensure there is a quality and safety guarantee for consumers, as the EU enforces the most vigorous standards.

A good way to create Growth and an alternative to Austerity.
