STOP THE STRASBOURG CIRCUS
Responsible department: Foreign and Commonwealth Office
We the undersigned believe that the €200 million spent every year moving the European Parliament between Brussels and Strasbourg is a waste of taxpayers’ money. We are further concerned that the travelling circus generates 20,000 tonnes of CO₂ at a time when all countries are supposed to be cutting their levels of pollution. We want the British Government to support the ‘One Seat Campaign’ and lobby for the end of the Strasbourg Circus.
We request that the Prime Minister submits a proposal in support of the ‘One Seat Campaign’ to the European Council demanding a change in European law so that the European Parliament need only meet in one place.
lute experience of consciousness. What are the different ways of interpreting spiritual experience? For this we find that there are developmental components, or stages, associated with the types of shared values that we have as cultures and with the types of values and worldviews that we hold as individuals as well.
One of the easiest ways to understand these shared interpretations is through the names that were given to them by Jean Gebser, who was a real pioneer in the mid twentieth century in looking at the evolution of these relative structures of consciousness. He called the stages archaic, magic, mythic, rational, pluralistic, integral, and higher. So you can have a full-blown satori, or consciousness experience, but depending on where you are in this developmental scale, you’ll interpret it according to different values.
You can interpret it in a magical, or egocentric, fashion: “I and I alone have this pure consciousness.” You can interpret it in a mythic, or traditional, value structure, which is the next major stage, and believe that this experience is given just to one group, one people, or one chosen tribe. You can experience it in a modern, or rational, fashion. You can experience it in a pluralistic, or postmodern, fashion. And you can experience it in an integral, or post-postmodern, fashion. These are all relative aspects of consciousness. And what you and I are particularly looking at is the importance of a full enlightenment being an experience of both absolute and relative consciousness.
environmental friendly mobility around cities and further outside in the near future.However, manufacturing a brand new car is energetically costly, the process itself emits a lot of greenhouse gases and pollutants. Should we destroy all existing vehicles to build new electric ones? A lot of old vehicles are sleeping in their garage and are not used by their owners, most of the time for mechanical reasons. Some of them are even scrapped but the biggest part of the vehicle is still good to go. That’s the reason why our team, with the passion and professionalism from the automotive industry, has created Ian Motion. Its ambition is to take part in the green transition by turning existing vehicles into restored electric ones. This process avoids the destruction of the car, the manufacturing of a new one and offers a real zero emission secondlife to the restored vehicle.
king and acting. We now have the choice of either spiraling into deepening peril, or breaking through to a world of dignity and wellbeing for all. Throughout its history, humanity has been guided primarily by a material consciousness. Fearing scarcity, we have continued to pursue material gain beyond necessity, taking from others and depleting the Earth’s natural resources. If our aspirations continue to focus only on what is material and finite, our world will face inevitable destruction. What is our true nature? In order to make more enlightened choices and change the course of our history, we need to return to the basic question concerning human life. Each and every one of us must ask, “What is our true nature?” and seek a meaningful and responsible answer. The great spiritual traditions of the world have always been telling us that, at its root, human life is inextricably linked to its universal source. Today, the latest advances in the physical and life sciences reaffirm this perennial insight. When we rediscover our connections to nature and the cosmos, we can re-align our life with the universal movement toward oneness and harmony in and through diversity. We can restore the divine spark in the human spirit and bring forth our innate love, compassion, wisdom, and joy to live a flourishing life. The time has come for every one of us to awaken the divine spark that resides in our heart.

over months, years, sometimes decades. You and I each might reach flow tomorrow morning—but neither one of us will achieve mastery overnight. So how can we enlist flow in the quest for something that goes deeper and endures longer? What can we do to move toward mastery, one of the key elements of Type I behavior, in our organizations and our lives? A few behavioral scientists have offered some initial answers to those questions, and their findings suggest that mastery abides by three, somewhat peculiar laws.” – Daniel H. Pink from Drive
