- The new AER superhero is not required to be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound – Image by Garu_ via Flickr
[Full disclosure – I was an intern with the AER in Strasbourg about 10 years ago. At that time Subsidiarity Man had not yet arrived on planet earth.]
The task of this particular superhero is to gain recognition for the word “subsidiarity
“. It’s not quite saving Gotham City from the Joker or catching Lois as she falls off yet another skyscraper but all the same it’s a pretty tall order. “Ok, it’s a word I admit it. Now please take me back down to earth Subsidiarity Man!”
We can laugh but I think it’s great that an association of regions like the AER is (1) harnessing the internet (2) doing in a fun way that attracts attention.
Over here at FH we sometimes get carried away with our own abilities but more often than not accept that we are but mere mortals.
*You’ll note that our internship in our Chemicals, Energy and Transport team is a renumerated one. We’re also currently looking for Account Executives for our Financial Services and ICT practices.
