COP15 100 Places To Remember 20091216
Copenhagen

Try to Google "100 places to remember (before they disappear)". 100 photos taken by some of the worlds best photographers - not including me. The panorama is taken hand held, forced by the rain and snow, with only a few days remaining of the COP15 climate conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. But the weather or over-zealous police officers interrupting will not stop the danes, including school children, from satisfying the curiosity. We are close to one of the finest danish hotels, Hotel D'Angleterre, at Kongens Nytorv (literal translation: The Kings New Square), where a number of prime ministers stay - and the security is tight! Do I look like a terrorist?

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
