What place is there for culture in Europe’s future? Teenagers from Bearsden prepare to tell Brussels On 19 February at 9.30 a.m., Bearsden Academy will welcome Mr Brendan Burns, member of the European Economic and Social Committee, to prepare for “Your Europe, Your Say” (YEYS), the youth assembly which will take place in Brussels on 15-16 March 2018. Thirty-three schools from across Europe, 28 EU Member States and five candidate countries, will come to Brussels and tell European institutions just what role they see culture playing in Europe’s future. They will brainstorm, debate and vote on three proposals which European institutions will factor into their policy making. Brendan Burns will work with the students in advance of the March meeting to prepare answers to some key questions concerning the future for European culture: What is European culture: is it just the sum of national traditions or are there common values that make us all Europeans? What is the role of culture and cultural exchanges in students’ lives? What can the European Union do to promote culture (cinema, music, dance, literature, theatre, etc.) and better protect cultural heritage sites? What role could culture play in the economic rebirth of Europe’s regions and cities? How can this rebirth give new opportunities to young people in terms of new jobs? Called “Your Europe, Your Say!” (YEYS), the event is organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the voice of civil society at European level, and is the Committee’s flagship event for young people. Through this initiative, the EESC is making sure that the views, experiences and ideas of the younger generation are taken on board in EU policy making. Brendan Burns has been a member of the EESC since 2006 and he is active within the Employers’ Group. Further details about YEYS2018 are available on the event’s official page and in last year’s video...

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — — Vivino, the world’s most downloaded mobile wine app and largest online wine marketplace has raised $20 million in Series C funding.  Since its last round of funding in January 2016, Vivino has increased its user base from 13 million to 29 million, and has grown its commerce initiative, which leverages community data to suggest personalized wine recommendations to each individual user based on their unique ratings and purchases.  This round is led by SCP Neptune International, the investment arm of industry icon, Christophe Navarre and brings Vivino’s total funding to $57 million since it was founded in 2010. Navarre, previously CEO and Chairman of Möet Hennessy and Chairman of VinExpo, also sits on Vivino’s Board of Directors. Balderton Capital, Creandum, SEED Capital Denmark and Iconical, all existing major investors in Vivino, are contributing to the round as well. Vivino was advised in this transaction by London-based merchant bank Dial Partners LLP.  The growth of e-commerce and m-commerce combined with an increasing reliance on – and demand for – trusted, crowdsourced reviews, is feeding an upward spiral in the value Vivino is creating. Vivino’s founder and CEO Heini Zachariassen said, “Vivino’s 29 million users are exploring two million wines each day on the platform – creating the world’s largest and most engaged wine community. In the United States alone, more than 130,000 wines are now available for purchase through Vivino from merchant partners. We are on a mission to enable all of our users to discover and easily purchase any wine available on the market.” Vivino’s marketplace sales in December 2017 were four times that of the previous December, fueled by growth in existing markets as well as the addition of six new markets. This latest round of investment will enable Vivino to continue to develop technology that delivers a seamless multi-channel commerce experience and to further invest in its team. Vivino will also extend commerce initiatives to new markets like Hong Kong, increasing revenues and enabling Vivino to meet its target of selling $1 billion of wine by 2020. “Since 2010,”  Zachariassen says, “Vivino has spearheaded a technology revolution in the business of wine, allowing millions of wine drinkers...
