News from the nuclear industry

Der große Bluff
Frontal21 hat wie immer eine sehr gute und deprimierende Reportage zum Ausstieg aus dem Atomaustieg. Es geht darum, dass die Verlängerung der Kraftwerk-Laufzeiten nicht den Kunden und Bürgern dient sondern der Bereicherung der Kraftwerkbetreiber und der Energieriesen. Die fragwürdige und ungelöste Endlager- und Atommüllproblematik wird thematisiert. Ein insgesamt erschreckendes Bild um die unsauberen, fahrlässigen und gefährlichen Praktiken einer Industrie und wie sie von den Politiker hofiert wird.

Nominated for “Deutscher Computerspielpreis 2010” on April 29

We are delighted to have received the nomination for the German Computergameprize 2010. It remains an anxious question whether we will persist with our project against the three other nominations and the added an additional price to the Serious Games Award 2009 we received at the CeBit in Hannover, Germany. The nomination for an award of this format, however, is in itself a great recognition of the long development time of more than two years, which we have invested alongside our studies. The awards ceremony will be held on April 29 as the culmination of the german Gamestage at the BCC in Berlin.

Oh happy day, we have been invited to present our Project Imagine Earth at the Campus Party Europe. The Spanish Ministry for Science and Innovation presents in Madrid from the 14th – 18th April, and during the Spanish Presidency of the European Union, Campus Party Europe: a special edition of what is considered the biggest event for technology, creativity and digital culture online in the world. The event is also supported by the European Commission.

For four days, 800 young people from each of the 27 member states of the EU will participate in activities such as conferences, workshops and challenges centered around three knowledge areas: Science, Digital Creativity and Innovation.

City Lifestyle 4.0

Since today, it’s even more beautiful to live in the cities on Imagine Earth. They grow dynamically from the floor the higher the population density is. Depending on the configuration they show themselves in different textures, from the rustic town up to the urban jungle with Business skyline. It’s a pleasure to watch them grow.

Earth – The Movie

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
