Greek journalist Kostas Argyros, seconded by Eleni Korovila and a film team, has been island-hopping around Europe, covering some of its small islands. On Sunday evening, the Greek television program “28europe” showed his 45 minute long report https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AVzC1LvOCw
Such great contributions from islanders Bengt, Lefteris, Tarja, Camille, Christian, Denis, Laurids and Maria. Such beautiful portraits of Skaftö (though Bengt seems a bit mislocated), Prangli in Estonia, Eigg in Scotland, the Åland Islands, Houat and Ouessant in France, Sejerø in Denmark and Tilos in Greece. But not just beauty – Kostas catches some of the important issues regarding life on small islands.
I especially like the interviews with Tarja from Prangli and Maria from Tilos.
All in all: a fantastic portrait of ESIN (the only thing missing is English subtitles).
AIP director Denis Bredin speaks about the SMILEGOV project https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re7ubp8ckkk, especially the financial mechanisms for energy projects.
Three french islands – Molène, Ouessant and Sein – participated in the project.
You can read their energy audits here: https://europeansmallislands.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/molene1.pdf, https://europeansmallislands.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/ouessant.pdf and https://europeansmallislands.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/sein.pdf
