Pipistrel nears launch of new hydrogen-powered 19-seater

Slovenia’s Pipistrel Aircraft, best known for its range of lightweight two-seaters, is nearing the launch of a new hydrogen fuel-cell- and battery-powered 19-seat hybrid that it hopes will revolutionise the commuter-category segment.

Dubbed the “Miniliner”, the aircraft could enter service by 2030, the company says, and will offer a substantial cut in operating costs against current designs.

Pipstrel says the Miniliner will be able to perform short point-to-point services between cities, boosting connectivity for underserved locations, or what it calls “microfeeder” flights into bigger hubs.

Power from the fuel cells will be sufficient for most departures, but batteries are provided to boost short-field performance, allowing departures from runways down to 800m (2,620ft). This, it says, will allow access to 80% of Europe’s airports.

While Pipistrel sees the optimum flight length as between 160-215nm (300-400km), the Miniliner will be able to fly for around 1,000nm on a single tank of liquid hydrogen.

BrightVibes amplifies the good in the world

BrightVibes is all about counter acting the negative and fear driven press and news that surrounds us everyday.
Media organisations have a huge effect on the well being and general feeling of the population yet they keep resorting to driving fear into people in order to sell newspapers and drive viewers.
This leaves people numb and depressed and less likely to take action to help their fellow man.
Bright Vibes is all about taking a different angle on every story. There are plenty of people telling you why something is bad and what is going wrong with the world so you don’t need another outlet doing that.
But how about someone telling what is going well with the world. To show you that even amidst a war there are heartwarming stories or people helping each other to get through the struggles.

The Peace Building

The Peace Building

A place where we can build a global culture of peace.

The Peace Building is set to be the first ever peace museum and education centre in London. It will be a meeting point where all generations can learn about peace builders through history; share stories of peace movements; and remember the countless victims of conflict. It will be a space where we can start to build a global culture of peace. Together.

There are eight war museum in London. We need a peace museum to provide an alternative discourse and champion the power of peace building.

The Peace Building will inspire and equip people of all ages to act peacefully in all aspects of their lives; from the individual level (fostering inner peace) and our relationships with others – to streets and communities (including the global community). We will work hard to become a centre of excellence in peace education through our learning programmes for schools and colleges – both in the centre and through outreach. The centre will also provide public spaces to reflect, relax and explore… Including a cafe, exhibition space, a reference library, studios, meeting rooms, a space for quiet reflection, and an events space for talks, lectures, conferences and concerts.

The Peaceful Schools

The Peaceful Schools

The Peaceful Schools Movement is a network of schools and organizations putting peace into practice through peace education and the creation of peaceful learning environments. Together we are creating peacebuilders who are bringing peace and harmony to the world.

By peaceful schools we mean peace on four levels: (1) the development of inner peace/peace within each individual within the school, (2) peaceful relationships between pupils, between school staff and between staff and pupils, (3) peaceful ethos/school community and (4) the way the school works for peace in the world. All schools – all phases too i.e. primary and secondary, and special schools of various kinds.
