Tweet Pocket Deadline: 13 February 2012Open to: Professionals and volunteers closely involved in youth policy processes in their youth organisations and countries, young multipliers closely involved in democratic youth movements in their countries, leaders of youth organisations having an active role in the developments of the Arab spring, bloggers and youth workersVenue: Malta 22-24 March 2012DescriptionThe South-Mediterranean youth policy cooperation of the partnership between the European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe in the field of youth, the League of Arab States (LAS) and other actors started in 2005. The cooperation aims at developing a common understanding and exchange of issues of specific concern for youth policy in Europe and South Med region. Since 2006, other national and international stakeholders of youth policy in European and South Med countries have become involved and extendedthe framework of this informal cooperation. The activities carried out brought together youth researchers, governmental institutions responsible for youth policy and nongovernmental youth organisations in European and South Med countries. Among other results, the cooperation has supported the process of the Euro-Arab Coordination Meeting of Youth Organisations (EACMYO), created possibilities for direct exchanges between South Med and European youth leaders through relevant youth forums, and provided opportunities for capacity-building of civil society youth organisations through training courses on human rights education, intercultural dialogue and youth participation.The process of changes brought about by the “Arab Spring” in various countries provides the context and drives the need for re-visiting this cooperation. The seminar on empowerment of youth organisations and youth led civil society in the SouthMediterranean framework hereby presented, is the first step in this direction: it provides youth non-governmental organisations and stakeholders the opportunity to reflect upon recent developments and their implications for the future youth policy cooperation so as to safeguard ownership of the process among stakeholders and to ensure a sustainable long-term perspective.The events in a number of countries in the Arab region since the beginning of 2011 have imposed a new perception of young people’s capacities and aspirations. As crucial actors in the processes of political changes, young people have stood up for more freedom,equality and justice. But they also stand up for better future perspectives in education and work, economic and social development and participation in the decision making process.Furthermore the role and organisation of youth policy needs to be reviewed.International youth policy cooperation has also an important role to play. Despite the obvious differences between the Arab and European regions, it is clear that both are affected by consequences of globalisation processes. The massive spread of global communication, and particularly social media, has become a new and powerful vehicle for young people to get organised and participate, to be informed and to spread information.Youth organisations in Europe might be interested to learn from the efficient use of social networks and online media by youth organisations in the South-Mediterranean region.This seminar will focus on the role and status of youth organisations/youth movements and the young people they work with as crucial actors in the development and consolidation of inclusive, participatory and pluralistic democracies based on human rights and the rule of law. Furthermore, this seminar will give opportunity for a joint analysis on the impact of youth (organisations) on the Arab revolutions and vice versa, their role within the resulting transition process.Objectives:To exchange on the current effects of Arab spring on civil society and develop a shared understanding of the current situation of young people in the South Med region as well as in European countries and their role in on-going processes of change;To understand the implications of this transition to democracy for the reality of youth, the youth agendas and for the landscape of youth led civil society organisations;To strengthen and support the role of civil society and non governmental youth led organisations and networks by enabling young people to reflect on their needs in terms of capacity building and propose joint projects to be implemented on a long term basis in a wider partnership.OrganisersMaltese Youth Agency a (Aġenzija Żgħażagħ), EU-CoE youth-partnership, League of Arab States, North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, Euromed Youth Platform.Date and duration:22-24 March 2012 (2 working days) (21st arrival, 24 th departure for participants, 25th departure for organisers and stakeholders).Venue: Malta (details to be confirmed)EligibilityThe seminar will bring together 30 young people from Southern Mediterranean [MENA] and European youth organisations, facilitators, stakeholders and youth policy experts from the Euro-Mediterranean region.The seminar is open for professionals and volunteers closely involved in youth policy processes in their youth organisations and countries, young multipliers closely involved in democratic youth movements in their countries, leaders of youth organisations having an active role in the developments of the Arab spring, bloggers and youth workers.Participants will be selected through an open call and nominated among selected experts and cooperation partners.ApplicationAll those interested in applying to take part in the seminar are kindly requested to fill in their application on-line.The deadline for submitting applications: 13 February 2012.

Share via Shortlink Greystone Capital Advisors’ Drew Fletcher and Lappin Associates’ Michael LappinTwo firms are offering New York City a solution to a slew of affordable housing issues.To make it work, Greystone and Lappin Associates need a property-tax break for rent-regulated housing.Their plan would address two controversial elements of the rent-stabilization law passed last year: its severe limits on regulated rent increases to pay for improvements, and its elimination of means-testing, which lets even the wealthiest New Yorkers lease rent-stabilized units.Greystone and Lappin hope to find Mayor Bill de Blasio receptive in the wake of his reluctantly cutting capital funding for about 21,000 affordable apartments, jeopardizing his goal of building or financing 300,000 such units.In exchange for tax breaks on rent-stabilized housing, the developers would ink long-term agreements to restrict the income of incoming tenants. That would qualify those units to count toward de Blasio’s numerical target.The city’s nearly 1 million rent-regulated apartments need work — and the city should make it happen, Lappin Associates founder Mike Lappin argued.“The new rent law makes it very difficult to get money into buildings that need repairs,” said Lappin. “We don’t know the extent of the deterioration, but the fact is, these older buildings need a fair amount of care, and they need it consistently.”By adding some rent-regulated properties to the mayor’s affordable-unit tally, the Lappin-Greystone proposal could also be one of the few remaining pathways for the mayor to reach his targets. The income restriction would qualify the units for more favorable financing through government-sponsored entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Business plans that depended on renovating apartments to raise rents are now “upside down,” explained Drew Fletcher, president of Greystone Capital Advisors. Those landlords now need to refinance expensive debt in a less lenient lending environment. Fletcher hopes Greystone can fill the void with low-cost, senior, first-mortgage financing for assets with a federal loan guarantee — when combined with a city tax benefit.“This housing stock is critical to New York City,” said Fletcher. “These apartments should be treated as if they are ‘capital A’ affordable properties — and if they were, we’d be able to take advantage of attractive underwriting criteria.”His firm, which is one of the largest private multifamily lenders in the country, is already having “high-level conversations” with Fannie and Freddie to develop underwriting criteria, Fletcher said.The proposal sounds like a lifeline for multifamily landlords who were still in shock over last year’s rent law change when the pandemic triggered a huge drop in rent collection. But the joint venture is also counting on at least some help from the city.Privately, however, few affordable housing industry insiders believe the administration has any intention of hitting its numbers, which have a deadline of 2026 — five years after the mayor must leave office.“They’re not going to make the targets, which they admitted by cutting 40 percent of the capital budget,” said one affordable housing executive. “Further constraining the revenues by extending more tax breaks to other housing stock may be tough for the city.”Some champions of last year’s rent law are skeptical of the call to dedicate city resources to private landlords.“What is maybe worth noting is that the landlords who are in the worst straits now likely refinanced a few years ago in order to do renovations, because that was the path to getting the buildings out of rent stabilization,” said Laura Wolf-Powers, an associate professor of urban planning at CUNY Hunter College. “So it’s particularly rich for them to be saying they need federal loan guarantees and city tax relief for renovations now.”The mayor might also see little upside to layering an affordability agreement on top of rent stabilization’s regulatory framework, which already provides de facto affordable housing.Unlike with the 5,000 Stuyvesant Town apartments protected from market-rate rents for 20 years under a 2016 agreement, deregulation isn’t on the table for rent-stabilized units. That means the city could make other demands, such as income restriction in those apartments, said Matthew Murphy, executive director of the Furman Center. And it probably wouldn’t have to pay as much for such agreements as it would have before.“The city now has leverage it didn’t have before,” said Murphy. “If you compared a deal like this to [one] prior to the rent-law changes, the city would have paid more to keep those units affordable and deregulated.”Murphy described the need for renovations as compelling. Even when regulated rents could be raised significantly to pay for improvements, the condition of rent-regulated apartments was worse than their market-rate counterparts. Now both unsophisticated smaller landlords and large corporate entities need to make renovations — and are on the hook for the bill.“This all kind of comes down to the question of whether the city will absorb the cost of the rent-law changes,” said Murphy. “It’s a generational question: What is the local government’s role in using tax money to support those changes?” Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsAffordable HousingProperty taxes
Playlab eyes SE Asian dominance after $5m roundFunding from Monk’s Hill Ventures will open up “neglected” markets in the fast growing regionMatthew HandrahanEditor-in-ChiefWednesday 14th October 2015Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articlePlaylabPlaylab has set its sights on “owning” the Southeast Asian mobile market after securing $5 million in funding from Monk’s Hill Ventures.So far, Playlab has survived on an initial $500,000 investment from its co-founders Jakob Lykkegaard Pedersen and Thomas Andreasen, and the revenue it has generated since then. Thanks to its biggest franchise, Juice Cube, that hasn’t caused too many problems in terms of growth: in May, Playlab said the Juice Cube games had earned more than $12 million for the company.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

In an interview with Techcrunch, Pedersen described its ambitions to dominate, if not the world, then at least Southeast Asia.”If we invest now, we can basically own the market once it fully monetises,” he said. “Southeast Asia has been neglected for so long for gaming. Western game companies do very little operations here. Once a user gets into their games, nobody cares much… but you really need to run campaigns, and care much more about your users. So [features like] live chat support, community building and things you wouldn’t have in Western games but crucial for these countries.”Playlab expects to release six new games a year, split evenly between first-party projects and investment partnerships with external developers.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
