No Country for Young People
This piece is from our latest edition: Priced Out: The Cost of Living in A Disrupted World, which helps us to understand the political trends and choices across Europe that got us into the cost of living crisis and to explore alternative ways of organising our society. In this piece, Anna Tonolio talks to young Italians and experts to understand why under-35s in Italy are so acutely affected by precarity and unemployment and the failure of political parties across the spectrum to revive their hopes.

The Environmental Cost of the War in Ukraine
It's almost nine months since the start of Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Rarely mentioned in coverage or analysis of the war is the ecological impact of it and how this is playing out today in Ukraine, one of the most heavily industrialised and polluted areas in the world. In this episode, we examine how war affects nature and public health in Ukraine for generations to come, and what the international community can do to mitigate this long-term damage.Written by Dmytro Averin, Freek van der Vet, Iryna Nikolaieva, Nickolai Denisov.Read by Julia Lagoutte.Text version: www.greeneuropeanjournal.eu/the-environmental-cost-of-the-war-in-ukraine/ Follow us on socials: @greeneujournal.Green Wave is produced by the Green European Journal.

After Modernity: Citizenship Beyond the Nation State?
