Statista - EU 2019 Gender Equality Index

Gender equality

/
This Sunday is going to be Women's Day. So this seems to me a good occasion to share the 2019 Gender Equality Index. Advances in this field cannot be considered completely satisfactory, however we have made some progress in Europe. Let us work even harder to achieve new goals in the next future.
Christmas Jumper Day

Save the children Christmas jumper day [Friday 13th December]

/
I didn't know, but apparently in the UK as in the US one of the Christmas fashion must haves is an ugly quirky possibly knitted jumper to wear at special occasions before the winter holiday such as University and Business Christmas parties or more specific “ugly Christmas sweater parties”. Since 2012, Save the children” have contributed to the spread of this silliness organising their “Christmas Jumper Day”.
IBIS - direct marketing

Ibis and the odd direct marketing

/
I couldn’t stop myself bringing this direct marketing campaign to your attention, even if I tried to forget about it and postpone it, but this is so odd and sort of funny, at the end I’ve decided to give in and share. Ibis, the famous hotel chain, in order to create awareness for one of their value added services – the Ibis business card – has created a very special offer for customers that own the card. Suspense.
KLM - awareness campaign

KLM awareness problem

/
What’s KLM? Apparently last year lots of Germans [46% to be precise] weren’t able to answer this very simple question.

Google sheep view

/
Yes, you did read the title of this post correctly. It’s about a surprisingly creative idea that Visit Faroe Islands have had in order to promote tourism in those islands, a stunning landscape but very far from the usually beaten path, so far that not even Google Street View had discovered it already.

Women’s Day

/
Tomorrow is Women’s Day. I’d like to live in a world where we didn’t need it. Where women have effectively the same rights and opportunities as men, the same wages for the same jobs and responsibilities. I’d like to live in a world where diversity is valued as a powerful strength in every context. I’m sure we can achieve that and, to remind you of this goal, I’m sharing this video today. Enjoy!
Stockholm Country Break - web campaign

How to “escape” from Stockholm

/
There are plenty of guides, both offline and online, ready to be consulted when someone has to plan and prepare any sort of trip in a major city. But what about the surroundings? That was certainly the starting point for the team that worked on top10stockholm.com by Stockholm Country Break, the website aimed to attract Stockholm tourists to also experience the Swedish countryside.
