The initiative comes from the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and is being supported by the Anglican Communion’s Environmental Network (ACEN).“For Anglicans, Catholics and many others, Lent is the time when we remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, facing challenge and temptation,” the Southern Africa environmental group Green Anglicans, say. “It is a time when we reflect on God’s purpose for our life. This year we challenge you to take a carbon fast – to reduce the actions which damage God’s Creation.”A downloadable crib-sheet of daily challenges is available online. Participants are encouraged to take part in a variety of activities, including, on February 15, “Reduce your meat consumption, starting with a Meat Free Monday.”Other suggestions include, on March 2, “On bin day, look at the size of your rubbish and commit to reducing it by half”; and, on March 16, “Think of a place to plant a tree and make it happen this month.”Other suggestions are less taxing. On February 18, participants are encouraged to “fix your fridge” by “setting the temperature around three degrees Celsius”; and on March 3 to “create your own green cleaning spray with water and white vinegar solution.”And there is also a romantic side to the challenge. On February 26, participants are encouraged to “have dinner by candlelight, talk, play games and enjoy.” And, if that encourages couples to want to spend more time with each other, they are helped by the challenge on the following day, February 27, which is dubbed “No electronics day” with participants challenged to “not use any electronics”, presumably including tablets, laptops and mobile phones.The Carbon Fast for Lent crib sheet can be downloaded from the Green Anglicans’ website.

In the Netherlands, design, energy reduction and the fight against human trafficking come together in one revolutionary project: the ‘Veilige Veste’. Literally translated this means ‘safe fortress’, and that is exactly what it is. You cannot miss the bright white building, cut like a diamond, subtly gleaming in the sun. It is the new home for girls from all around the world that have been victims of human trafficking. Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieVictims of Human Trafficking: “We won’t be intimidated any longer!”Bold, brave and safe is the concept for the new shelter for girls that have been victims of human trafficking. The Dutch KAW architects designed their new home. Not tucked away in anonymous houses in back alleys anymore, which is the way these girls are normally treated. No, these girls do not have to fear their perpetrators any more in their new home that is standing fierce in the midst of Frieslands’ capital Leeuwarden. In their safe fortress they send out a clear message: we are no longer on the run, game over, giving their perpetrators the finger. ‘Veilige Veste’ provides security and protection, so the girls can build up their lives again.Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieWith an impressive motorcycle parade, the opening of ‘Veilige Veste’ was celebrated exuberantly. Almost fifty girls, once victims of trafficking, forced prostitution, lover boys and maltreatment, celebrated their newly built accommodation on the motorbike backseats of over 200 cops, in a tour across the province of Friesland. Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieDouble 3D DesignThe gleaming white building may look like newly built, yet in fact it is a completely renovated police office from the early 70ies. As most constructions from that time, this edifice was very poorly insulated. Covering up was the solution. The architect in charge, Italian born Beatrice Montesano, was inspired by other professions of art. The sculptor Giuseppe Sanmartino and the artist Christo show wrapping can be an art form. Christo is famous for wrapping i.a. the Reichstag in Berlin, the Pont-Neuf in Paris and of course New York’s very own Central Park. Earlier inspiration came from her birth town Napels in Italy, where she had been intrigued as a child by Sanmartinos sculpture of the statue of the Veiled Christ from 1753. Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieCovering the whole building with especially designed square composite elements; that is how architect Beatrice Montesano translated the work of the previous mentioned artists in the transformation of the old police station.  The strict 12 by 12 feet grid constituting the building inspired Montesano to design the diagonally angled squares, that are positioned alternately to create the diamond shape pattern that covers the building. After more than ten years in the Netherlands, Montesano is still moved by the amazing changes of light that are characteristic of the Dutch landscape. “I still think the light here is incredibly beautiful. The white façade with its subtle gleam interacts with its environment; you see the air and the trees reflected in them, changing shapes from every different angle and different time of the day.’ Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieThe façade on the ground floor is constituted from wooden panels and large windows, giving it the appearance of a building floating over ground level, which in turn enhances the concept of a fortress. The ground floor consists of 1600 m2 offices, meeting rooms and treatment rooms. The 48 girls live on the first and second floor, divided in six residential groups. These floors are the ones covered with the diagonally angled square elements on the outside. The second floor is a square built around a huge patio; a garden for the girls where they can be outside but still be safe from harm. Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieIt might be her Italian background that made Montesano spend special attention to the patio. “A patio in Italy has a very important function: that is where the family comes together, where you relax, where you find tranquillity in a busy city. The atmosphere in the patio is always completely different from outside the building; here you sense a much more warm and intimate atmosphere.” In the patio, Montesano worked with wood and bronze materials, creating a defined contrast with the white, somewhat cool outside. Save this picture!© Gerard van Beek FotografieMassive Energy Reduction through Passive HouseWhat is revolutionary about the ‘Veilige Veste’, is that this is the first large office block in the Netherlands to be renovated according to the Passive House standard. ‘Passive House’ is a standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. In this case, the fact that the former police stations’ substructure was placed outside the building, meant an enormous energy abuser to be dealt with. The substructure created a thermal bridge that works exactly like a tunnel sucking in the cold outside air. By wrapping the building with the diamond-cut square panels, the substructure is now within the building and the whole building is covered by a thick layer of insulation. At some points, the façade is over 3 feet thicker now. Thanks to optimal insulation, draft proofing and the use of very little, highly energy-efficient equipment, the ‘Veilige Veste’ consumes exceptionally little power. Save this picture!Courtesy of KAW ArchitectenProject gallerySee allShow lessEcho Ridge Duplexes / El Dorado IncSelected Projects’Wind Fountain’ Competition Entry / Gembong Reksa KawulaArticlesProject locationAddress:Holstmeerweg 1, 8936 Leeuwarden, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Those are the moments that make it all worth the while.”The Institutes’ optimistic themes were summed up in the lyric of “A Brand New Day,” an original song which Monet unveiled during Sunday’s event.Sunday’s showcase at the Paseo also featured many of the experts who worked with the youth during the Institute: dancer and motivator Karisma Collins, fitness trainer and dancer Rebecca Broxterman, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Jason Taylor and Pasadena City Attorney/ City Prosecutor Michele Beal Bagneris (who also happens to be Monet’s mother).

Labour to ‘end all leasehold ownership’ if Corbyn makes it into power

first_imgLabour has revealed proposals to end leasehold ownership of both apartments and houses if it were to win the next General Election.Shadow housing secretary John Healey (pictured, above) and shadow housing minister Sarah Jones (pictured, below) say they want to end all leasehold ownership in England by enabling its 4.3 million leaseholders to buy the full, freehold ownership of their home for just 1% of the property’s value.If implemented, the proposals would be the most radical change to the way people own property in the UK since leasehold was reformed in 1967, although the current system of long leases has only been around since 1920.The two MPs claim that for a property in England priced at £250,000 with a 90 year lease, their proposals could mean the cost of buying the freehold would be slashed from over £10,000 to £2,500, a saving of almost £8,000, plus legal fees.Other reformsLabour says it also intends to end ground rents completely for new leasehold homes, cap ground rents at 0.1% of a property’s value and empower leaseholders to hire and fire their block’s managing agent or manage it themselves.The party also says it would launch a public enquiry into the leasehold mis-selling scandal.“Leasehold is a symbol of our broken housing system, with millions of England’s homeowners feeling like they’ve bought their home but still don’t own it,” says John Healey.“England is one of the only places in the world which has failed to move away from this feudal system. Across the world, modern alternatives like commonhold have flourished.”    July 9, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
