A few favourite quotes:

  • “The first acting award in history, that does not separate nominees based on their sex. Says something about how we perceive human experience.”
  • “Empathy and the ability to use your imagination, should have no limits.”
  • “I am so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy and love the way that this one does.”

She give thanks to:

  • The person who announced her and gave her the award
  • The writer of the original Belle
  • The writer of the book on what the animated film was based on
  • The actor of the original Belle
  • Every single person who voted for Emma Watson
  • The other nominated people alongside her
  • Anyone and everyone who had anything to do with giving Emma Watson this opportunity and for supporting her on that journey.

Let her speech be an inspiration for your own speeches

Rotterdam European City of 2015

In november 2014 was the Urbanism Awards ceremony and Rotterdam won the top prize! The International Academy of Urbanism in London organises this event every year and they named Rotterdam as Europe’s best city of 2015! The Academy of Urbanism want to help promote places and learn from them. Chairman of the Academy Steven Bee said about Rotterdam:

“The City has a predominantly young, open, tolerant community that is embracing innovative architecture and urban design and new business models. Its strategy is to attract families and businesses to the central area with a variety of housing, excellent public transport and a lively public realm.” “A long-term perspective, a high level of autonomy, strong leadership by the mayor and municipality, and strong partnerships between public and private sector, are all helping Rotterdam grow positively.”

These words of Bee summary how you can describe Rotterdam over the past couple of years. Although there has been a financial crises, a cultural cut in subsidies and raising unemployment (by then), Rotterdam is doing well. And I as a student living in Rotterdam see things happen, little changes. Sometimes companies are suddenly gone, festivals bounding their strength together to survive but Rotterdam is also growing. Especially you see it on the long-term project like the Markthal which opened on the 1st of october last year. It is a very famous architectural building and the first market hall of The Netherlands. It reminds me of the market hall next to the Ramblas in Barcelona, Spain.

Rotterdam has also some beautiful videos, one of them is of the plans of the Markthal, before it was finished by Provast Markthal Rotterdam, this film is made in march 2014 by PlusNewMedia
