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