yeah it's a good morning um everything sounds so much more
00:00:06
um profound in french so i'm sorry this english presentation because the shallow
00:00:12
could somebody bring some coffee please because i was waiting in line for two hours um
00:00:18
and this is a wonderful event then commas i thank you very
00:00:21
much for for uh in uh the great on opening here
00:00:25
um the um presentation this morning the fantastic and i i hope to be able to
00:00:31
participate um even the french isn't this afternoon 'cause i think the discussions very important
00:00:37
and um i wish we could maybe make some and i had to me
00:00:41
academy but i yeah out of this because century project because the essentially
00:00:46
um discourse condos uh it's a sorely missing in our universities and
00:00:53
uh i can testify to the fact that in fact becomes
00:00:56
more scarce as time goes on this project um
00:01:00
who has been here when i've first presented the first sketch
00:01:07
i was here like this is really a project um uh
00:01:14
that looks up the alpine a um a space uh the up and the engine
00:01:20
a through the lens of a seven nations who or she had this region um
00:01:28
and the seven nations in marked on a joint research
00:01:32
project to somehow figure out how sustainable our
00:01:36
human packed is is in the out and we can i i'm not so much from an ecological pharmacology
00:01:43
point of view but from an indicator point of view from a from an attempt to find
00:01:48
key indicators to tell us how sustainable our pact is out but to
00:01:53
clean the built environment and in spatial development but not only
00:01:58
and to be able to compare or relate all packed this is a costly out fine
00:02:04
can change um that's a project it's um sheltered in the open
00:02:08
space a program of inter make open space apart of the
00:02:14
a european which regional development fund program um under
00:02:20
the social cohesion programs are the ultimate
00:02:22
aim is to foster social cohesion across countries
00:02:26
through the lens of discussing sustainability
00:02:30
this project um i've classes a special project which been
00:02:34
made possible by a um special support uh from
00:02:37
the player foundation which looks at ways in which we
00:02:41
might um makes sense of the indicate it's
00:02:47
not just as numerical data or charts or graphs
00:02:51
or height charts or spider charts but as
00:02:57
tangible uh extensible narrative uh and to do so
00:03:02
within each country but also across the counties
00:03:06
and uh as a preface if we will add i i i have a few um
00:03:12
annotations to make one in terms of inspiration one in terms of
00:03:16
motivation the inspiration came really from the wonderful world of
00:03:21
school addresses that we remember those of us that had school at this is that where on the face of a geographic
00:03:28
tomes of countries but actually when you look at them where a wealth of inside
00:03:34
and tangible um journeys that when my possible but the references um that were
00:03:42
built into this atlases um but also the world of thematic after this is that look at
00:03:47
history look at who to look at um the environment is example on or right from
00:03:54
india and sanskrit uh a reference for yeah yeah
00:04:00
hindi students to learn about the environment of india
00:04:05
or on the upper left hand we have a sense of um another
00:04:09
connotation of ad last which the kind of under the surface
00:04:14
intrigued us but also concern as a bit as the concert at the the
00:04:19
relation to the tie can wrap that's a one of a promises relatives
00:04:27
and uh even though the heroic figure of apple as a caring the universe so the speaker
00:04:32
they haven't was actually a punishment there was a both i i agree to or eek
00:04:39
a pillar of holding up the interface but also a punishment for
00:04:44
progress often i tend to change the the nature things to change the rule the order of things too
00:04:50
battle with the cards for the supremacy of the heavens
00:04:55
and so paul tight enough let's find some seven the same
00:05:00
um company as a titan pro me things for
00:05:04
the same curse of having at ten progress
00:05:08
promises went even further he to some invented humans to us
00:05:15
gave humans fire and was punished for that
00:05:19
transgression and so that technological progress
00:05:23
for me this embarked on scottish by an ego eating is live every day
00:05:30
and it would grow up that quote we're back at night and so this this is a kind of a
00:05:34
a a pattern which you also find in the biblical tradition where progress
00:05:41
attempt to reach where is this coming should by the heavens with uh
00:05:47
terrible afflictions like different languages or division of societies so
00:05:55
and so i would like to move from the sort of inspiration of
00:05:58
this narrative to the motivation because it's simple only charged with
00:06:03
the tragedy of progress and here i've current picture of
00:06:08
making sure that most of the current picture which that's the last the nineteenth century um
00:06:15
last night's intention when the industrial revolution still wasn't or is it still
00:06:19
was portrayed as very romantic today it's less romantic it has uh
00:06:24
help unwind valley has the same affliction the rest of the ops have
00:06:28
um with um yeah she yeah unfettered approach to urban development
00:06:36
which we think it has something to do with the late capitalism or with that
00:06:40
inability of the swiss or liechtenstein mentality to control private um ownership
00:06:47
um but it's really also born on the energy dimension
00:06:51
and i think that that's sort of what motivated
00:06:53
me at least to be part of this project the
00:06:57
fundamental fossil fuel strange nature of our societies
00:07:03
which provide a ninety five percent of um of transport energy fifth order for
00:07:09
instance but also this extraordinary traditional slowly
00:07:13
disappearing but still prevalent energy
00:07:17
provisions system that electricity provider coal or nuclear power generators
00:07:22
that waste enormous amount what in fact um
00:07:26
the new clear the cooling of nuclear energy inserts and uses small what and all the other use combined
00:07:34
a few people know that but uh it's uh
00:07:37
said fine
00:07:39
and so the ultimate um hum punishment if you will of this progress achieved to
00:07:45
you cheated meet means is um this the stabilisation
00:07:51
of fall concentration of see it tonight was
00:07:53
here to an eighty plus min in for many thousands of years essentially human humans evolution
00:08:00
two yesterday four and six plus the meeting some people think you can rise to one fifty that's of course
00:08:07
insane if you risk here if you just hear you you know
00:08:11
the difference of sam out in nineteen sixty and semi today
00:08:19
what is he track still exist but they're become a figment of
00:08:24
imagination or let's say scrape scrape imagination
00:08:30
and this means of illusion is become a a dominant
00:08:35
um land use in the alps i don't know what he know that uh they're more apt officially
00:08:41
snow doesn't was applied ski here is in the alps then i recall so it's
00:08:49
and this has not just what effects but also land transformation effect as a
00:08:56
uh what i was of our built in the the very naps and you see what's done to the
00:09:03
uh helps in order to be able to have the word to to create this artificial illusion of past
00:09:11
um cultures or cultural traditions and so into still today entire settlements up built
00:09:18
in the opposite this is that the property of course the realistic
00:09:22
industry that's driving this ski mean yeah because in order to maintain
00:09:26
this a a property values you have to have the
00:09:31
this keen that goes with the the traditional ski that is actually built around the school
00:09:36
not official notion of of of of of of a ski slope into some miles
00:09:41
a a concrete slow but it doesn't matter 'cause nobody be that it's it's
00:09:47
budgeted and finance to be able to also line from the three or three and a half months off oh okay page
00:09:54
how they can was october i like there was four months later dropped by twenty eight meetings
00:10:05
what to use tools normally
00:10:08
um fish freezes in mid year because of lack of snow
00:10:14
a lack of what to do to the snow making equipment this is uh
00:10:19
common picture in the alps no israel dissemination
00:10:22
enterprises snow factories is accompanied that a
00:10:26
special lies and dissemination equipment but they found that the same technology also
00:10:31
it's useful to make snow if you add certain chemicals
00:10:38
um the chemicals and minerals to the needed to give that up for some
00:10:43
pretty snow it's ice it's ice and there's no like a form
00:10:48
um that requires this kind of additives which can completely transform the
00:10:52
water that is then part of yelp and because it's
00:10:58
uh and switzerland still today understand uh a band another uh i'll find countries
00:11:05
a snow max's used uh which is uh in fact and an american invention to use
00:11:10
the genetic remnant material off bacteria or micro
00:11:14
organisms that live in extremely low
00:11:17
temperatures so it enables this node to free ease at much higher temperatures
00:11:26
uh the problem is that it actually leaves a visit you in
00:11:29
the snow when people that have certain asthmatic conditions can
00:11:33
die of that um and it's become the cause of a lot of court cases in the u. s. and l.'s
00:11:39
though but it's still use insert a lot so that if you have somebody in your family was asthmatic
00:11:45
another reason not to go skiing and officially changed
00:11:54
so i'm turning away from this um she uh so you could say kind of um
00:12:00
traditional madness of how we use our environment how we find technological solutions to maintain
00:12:06
um traditions of the past we can i think we can find
00:12:10
also in the opposite a lot not very many but of
00:12:14
quite a few small a precious silence of the car
00:12:17
that isn't a special design inventions of planning
00:12:21
innovation does a very small i end this case in
00:12:26
the uh do bunch region that essentially them
00:12:31
medium size too small area uh west of the law and
00:12:36
and which is a an x. inaccessible to people and
00:12:39
there's no there's no was not skiing traditional skiing
00:12:43
and it's very simple minded uh you on activities i mean is kind
00:12:47
of a turning away from the uh that's me uh on the
00:12:52
working and the sum and they're trying to make a living as an academic something's or um the this uh
00:12:59
this kind of focus on very basic agriculture basic from
00:13:05
the generation of of the word to re jean
00:13:08
um but also this kind of beginning to find a new uh him if you
00:13:12
will uh economy and um local regional biologically organically grown crop and so what
00:13:19
is also part of the elephant tradition but wait a minute quite very
00:13:23
visible and veggie it was all but uh uh not very glamorous
00:13:27
but i think very important um and and and critical to somehow
00:13:32
uh get a hold off so when i looked at the
00:13:37
the project it that we um we embarked on a and e. into rick a framework
00:13:43
i realise that the trench ability or the the sort of um a critical understanding
00:13:50
of these issues can get lost in the indicator environment and if you have
00:13:55
a bunch of indicators i just go through this a little um
00:14:01
let's see um smoothly you so without stopping too much uh to
00:14:06
magic too many a slide because realising that um this
00:14:09
is an eye test for all of us and didn't realise how far way as small screen can can feel
00:14:18
but uh essentially at the upon space can be divided three
00:14:22
ways in this of administrative routine the alpine convention
00:14:26
the green here in the middle the open space which the uh that funding
00:14:30
program and and and the and the the european regional development phone
00:14:34
and and then the record use out which senses roughly the same year but
00:14:38
includes all of give area and so you different ways of defining out
00:14:43
in that sense and um there is a kind of a voluntary bottom up group of architects
00:14:49
engineers build environment specials that uh specialise that combined themselves in a in a
00:14:54
in a a thing called system which is a common environment assisting ability
00:15:00
indicate or let's say harmonisation of the built in final maybe buildings
00:15:05
and the good um was inspired enough to say well if we aim to send billings what about
00:15:10
planning but uh but regions about about uh areas we've been here and um landscapes and so
00:15:17
and they succeed in getting a ago and we succeed
00:15:20
in getting a grant and essentially began furiously dividing
00:15:24
the world of environmental indicators into six major categories from
00:15:29
characters to energy all the way to the econ economy
00:15:34
and so the ended up in hundreds of um indicators which we collected from
00:15:38
the different uh territories and we categorised both in terms of priorities
00:15:44
and uh in terms of the relevance to things like sustainable
00:15:47
development goals united nations is it's a really a mad
00:15:52
now over your long indicated collection exercise across those
00:15:57
a seven countries is third twelve groups uh in seven card
00:16:03
and so this notion of somehow finding a way of uh doing more with
00:16:07
that exercise uh or less ugly something maybe more tangible lasting um
00:16:15
a rose in our team and uh i guess we succeeded trust a buyout foundation to support just
00:16:23
and so we looked at different ways of you know in the european
00:16:26
countries at least a sustainability or common footprint is mapped uh
00:16:30
on the web g. s. basis than what map um may be
00:16:34
permitted to some of your which uh maps essentially bone ability
00:16:38
um in the scandinavian regions or the maps that available
00:16:43
to map different sustainable development goals and the status
00:16:46
in different parts of the world not all part that's beginning to be a visualise so to speak
00:16:52
um so be we asked all of partners to tell us what they able to to map but but they but
00:16:58
the currently have a capacity of um i am so this is a bit slow them anguished was but
00:17:07
at least it's doesn't get stuff this is um so the a pictorial impression of how
00:17:13
these regions map themselves using a web based g. s. a data um
00:17:19
they they listed the challenges they face and and and and and you
00:17:23
lies in those tools which we analysed and a transformed into
00:17:29
a a plan on how to begin to work together uh we also
00:17:33
then asked them but they they capable of um i um
00:17:39
mapping the eh if e. terms of tools with the using lied our maps uh
00:17:45
topographic maps of pro source overthrow maps it became quite tech a collection
00:17:51
be compared to different regions um there's nine territory's in in those seven uh countries
00:17:58
um and we finally um also then impart my wallet tate if uh
00:18:05
attempt to collect information from the different or at least understand how
00:18:12
and those regions or territories um see themselves through photographic go video
00:18:18
graphic means to our cars that have visual nature historical incur
00:18:23
um but also checks and uh a recorded marriages of films
00:18:29
or something you know it's you have still in
00:18:32
the sense of an atlas a kind of a mapping tool but the ability to also them um
00:18:39
access the audio visual data of from from web resources
00:18:47
now
00:18:50
week actresses different partners in in their ability they use
00:18:54
is in the parties and um members to that
00:18:59
most of them are very very keep uh most of them have all the data
00:19:02
online or a significant amounts of data not all of them are equally um
00:19:08
resource the key people to manage those teacher well and so
00:19:13
what we said to ourselves will work with um
00:19:17
with
00:19:19
three of those um part uh participants in a
00:19:22
pilot looking at uh two key performance indicators
00:19:28
essentially the what we call the super k. p. r. as the
00:19:31
the probably the most important on the climate change one
00:19:35
is the self sufficiency of a region in terms of renewable energy
00:19:40
and i was comparing to it that the f. energy demand
00:19:43
to the local capacity to generate renewable energy and secondly
00:19:47
the capacity of the region to sequester biologically c. o. two from that was
00:19:53
that's what amounts for us uh agricultural reform like also that since
00:19:57
i was in terms of actual practised and additional potential
00:20:04
um and then i said look i mean when we used to the
00:20:07
to the sort of the aspiration arm of open government open
00:20:12
governments data what we also call link open data structures and focus
00:20:18
and use spatial um you'd lacerations essentially saying we've got the
00:20:25
various stages of the project we have uh i'll out was
00:20:29
a partners and those are the uh twelve um
00:20:32
project partners we define three is pilot members and then we sort of call them the the land or
00:20:39
pilots land for link to alpine network teach 'em that
00:20:43
piece of set up and to begin to um
00:20:48
to emulate the conventions of link open data structures
00:20:53
um both across different themes different feels that that that have
00:20:57
been involved in the last well about ten years
00:21:01
some of them actually adopted by government as a principles and the open government data
00:21:06
uh i'm a party uh but also in terms of uh being able within
00:21:13
the uses or the providers of those tito those individual territories uh regions
00:21:18
uh to correlate different data structures to be to have more complex data offerings because
00:21:24
when you have look at self sufficiency in renewable energy have to compare
00:21:28
management to self sufficiency or let it be energy provision
00:21:32
so if you put those two data structures together do you get what we need so
00:21:36
that before we correlated data they need to actually make a cross reference of some
00:21:43
now i'm reference to the bayes um
00:21:49
we also said there's two volumes to this a one as the
00:21:51
local and regional data read we correlate bananas also layoff
00:21:56
you white data or international global data which also relevant to the same topics that
00:22:01
we should draw from the existing different director generals are different um uh resources
00:22:10
uh so the the three um kyle can it's at least
00:22:13
understand and be combined it with the um swiss
00:22:17
charter if we hadn't backed essentially a a myriad um if you think of the stitched um the rhine
00:22:24
two it's west uh to the west of the rhyme is a region called baton back which essentially is a war shark
00:22:31
test like copy off the speech card also eleven
00:22:37
communities roughly the same population they speak
00:22:40
swiss and on the other so to speak like just average in the various eleven
00:22:45
types of x. and then uh entertain lombard here and the raw not um
00:22:54
again the super cute guys there is in fact a kind of a charting off um
00:23:00
a the big uh a pink spot just uh yeah i'm i'm get monte um
00:23:07
uh the body and benito and onion to the to the to the west of
00:23:10
that you see one at picking up tiny delete each time and getting back
00:23:16
asked almost straight above mean on them is that even small
00:23:20
layering austria there's the slovenian and the german a territory
00:23:24
and so they all i'll sit in the pipeline waiting here is a map superimposed map of the alpine
00:23:30
convention here them the alps themselves and the supposition of
00:23:34
the actual um national to a territorial borders
00:23:40
we uh we assigned uses types of uses for this kind of
00:23:44
environment if you will visual data environment but also users
00:23:49
um and we can try to kind of in a rudimentary we um mark mark up what the window on to
00:23:56
this uh data environment might look like you you might have a window open where you see a certain
00:24:01
topic being mapped a certain resource availability or critical
00:24:08
resilience uh issue you might and switch to another screen we
00:24:12
see that same window and they can access um
00:24:16
flat thrown data or um see to see questioning data
00:24:21
i'm almost and we do want to take over
00:24:25
i like it that much but but sure i'm was that should have okay alright so essentially
00:24:33
ah the uses out without the thing about the user types uh so the public the
00:24:37
general community the high school kids could you know i discovered the environment um
00:24:44
in new ways oh can you see at apps developing for
00:24:49
more professional use landscape artist you are for so
00:24:52
a flood control special so people that just look at 'em uh agricultural resources uh we
00:24:59
also um began to build in what's the current big theme and discussion is the
00:25:05
liberation of the river right um both force you to sequestration by diversity and
00:25:12
just plain old common sense reasons uh at the start of references to what
00:25:18
the rhyme just look like what it used to do those kinds of
00:25:22
print does relating to that comparing minimal energy rises greenhouse gas emissions reductions
00:25:27
uh he is it your portal which we developed um a couple years ago
00:25:31
which then can be tied into that which really looks at the
00:25:34
a power and heat of thermal energy self sufficiency potential of
00:25:39
uh the principal divisions that um that's kind of a
00:25:46
game to to see what it might mean if you if you use the the uh so look at astral available
00:25:53
surveys up both in the um in but let's or in
00:25:58
the s. p. pieces uh will work uh track
00:26:01
land we actually did a study for the s. p. b. and w. w. have to calculate uh oh
00:26:08
how much of the like just to use by the s. b. could produce
00:26:11
people choose on on on the on that that's about sixty plus
00:26:17
and so these are the chargers were working and that's that's a that's a that's a lumbar yeah you in there or not
00:26:24
these to send it back or sectors that problems here and ultimately we hope that this
00:26:28
also maybe helping to uh the locals in the constraint to discover the or
