Bar szerintem sokkal jobb lenne, ha Magyarorszagi allas-hirdetesekkel lenne
tele a Kornyesz.  Kerek mindenkit, hogyha kiszagol valami allast vagy
osztondijat, amit otthon lehet felhasznalni, gondoljon a Kornyeszre.  Szerintem
sokan vagyunk a vonalban, akik elobb-utobb szeretnenk haza-keveredni, es innen
eleg nehez az otthoni lehetosegekrol tudni (csak ugy , mint otthonrol a
kinntiekrol). Meg mar csak nemi partiotizmusbol is - tok jo, ha tele van a
vilag okos magyar kornyeszekkel, de azert otthon sem art egy par...

***Getting to know Internet***

Twenty-one Central and Eastern European information specialists and
librarians are ready to teach others how to use the Internet. They
attended a two-day Internet train-the-trainers workshop at the REC
head office in Budapest in March. Computer training experts Roy
Tennant, Czeslaw Grycz, and Barbara Rodes taught the librarians and
information specialists where to find different kinds of data and how
to carry out on-line computer searches. But Judit Bouabdallah, the
REC's main librarian, found TennantOs suggestions on netiquette
(Internet etiquette) the most helpful. "Everything he said was easy
to understand and easy to apply," she said. The workshop participants
are now ready to train others back in their home countries in their
own native languages. The US Agency for International Assistance
funded the workshop.

Immediately following the Internet training workshop the
International Organization of Information Specialists elected a new
president during its second annual meeting.

IOIS is a decentralized individual membership organization whose
purpose is to promote collaboration and to stimulate exchange on all
aspects of information.

for industrial problems and energy conservation

The Regional Environmental Center (REC)
for Central and Eastern Europe
REC, Budapest, Hungary

The REC conducted a needs assessment in August 1994. This assessment
revealed that Central and Eastern European NGOs are interested in
industrial pollution, so ECU 125,000 has been earmarked to support
projects in this field.

The REC invites project proposals from registered, non-profit,
non-governmental, environmental organizations from: Albania,
Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia,
Lithuania, FYR Macedonia, Poland, Romania, the Slovak Republic,
Slovenia. Requests for funding from the REC must not exceed ECU
20,000 per project. For this topic, the following exchange rates are
in effect: ECU 1 = HUF 158.45, USD 1.33, and DEM 1.82.

One of the REC's highest priorities is promoting Regionwide
cooperation among NGOs. Therefore, ECU 60,000 has been set aside for
cooperative projects of at least two NGOs from two different
countries. If NGOs need help identifying potential partners they
should contact the REC Earmarked Grants Team by 1 June 1995 with a
brief outline of their project idea and the required partners.


This earmarked category covers:

1.Industrial pollution sources (including air, water, and land

 . identifying pollution sources and evaluating their impact; 

 . addressing industrial waste (hazardous waste) management problems,
including problems with incinerators, industrial wastewater releases,
and waste deposit sites; 

 . expressing environmental damage in monetary terms, using economic
measures that build environmental values into decision-making; 

 . enforcing the polluter pays principle;

 . promoting legislative procedures in industrial waste management,
such as .compulsory EIA and public hearings in cases of waste
deposit sites, incinerators, problems of (illegal, hazardous) waste
import, illegal waste deposits, etc.; 

 . increasing public control over such problems; raising public
awareness of industrial pollution problems and of the economic
benefits of clean technologies and environmentally sound practices. 

2.Energy problems: 

 . identifying alternative energy-producing systems against current,
polluting systems; 

 . identifying the harmful effects of current energy production and
presenting alternative solutions; 

 . identifying and promoting energy-saving technologies and measures for
industries and households; 

 . identifying problems with nuclear power stations, with special
emphasis on nuclear waste management (handling, transporting, and
depositing), and risk assessment of active (or planned) nuclear power

 . establishing alternative energy-producing systems; 

 . identifying partners and developing realistic action plans to develop
the energy industry in an environmentally friendly way; 

 . organizing educational or public awareness programs on these topics.


1.Problems related to communal waste (wastewater) management,
selective waste collection, as well as public transport and traffic
are better addressed under the next earmarked topic, "Urban and
Community Problems." Similarly, public health problems caused by
communal waste (wastewater) management, traffic or transport are
outside the scope of this call for proposals. 

2.Since Environmental Education will not be a separate topic this
year, all educational and public awareness raising programs are
welcomed under this call for proposals. 


Projects should approach these issues by one or more of the
following methods:

 . educating the public and raising public awareness; 

 . promoting the exchange of information between decision makers and
the public; 

 . promoting intersectorial negotiation and understanding; 

 . implementing concrete, result-oriented actions with high model value;

 . lobbying authorities to promote alternative solutions and/or
involving local people in decision making; 

 . facilitating the implementation of economic and legal instruments or

Proposal Preparation

NOTE: New Financial Regulations in Effect: Only officially stamped
invoices written in the name of the NGO or the Regional Environmental
Center are accepted for reimbursement. For full information contact
the Earmarked Grants Team.

Proposals must be completed in accordance with criteria in the
Earmarked Grants Program Proposal Guidelines, this Call for Project
Proposals, and the REC's new financial regulations (April 1995).
These are available from the Earmarked Grants Team. 

Proposal Evaluation

All the general evaluation criteria described in the Earmarked
Grants Program Proposal Guidelines and outlined in the REC's new
financial regulations apply to this call for project proposals.

Specific Evaluation Criteria for Industrial Problems

Priority is given to: 

 . concrete and tangible result-oriented project proposals, rather
than those without immediate relevance; 

 . projects addressing transboundary problems, and those involving
cooperation between NGOs in Central and Eastern Europe; 

 . projects which are feasible, realistic and appropriate for the actual
conditions of the project site. 

NOTE: REC Earmarked Grants do not fund research as a dominant part
of projects. This includes data collection and sampling.


Proposals for consideration under "Industrial Problems and Energy
Conservation" must be received at the REC Head Office (if delivered
by hand) or postmarked not later than 3 July 1995.

Environmental  Action Program
for Central and Eastern Europe (EAP)

The Regional Environmental Center is now distributing translated
versions of the Environmental Action Program for Central and Eastern
Europe (EAP) to 13 countries. The REC is assisting the respective
national ministries of environment to organize seminars to present
the EAP and to present the status of countries' National
Environmental Action Programs. The one-day seminars will explain how
the EAP fits into the Environment for Europe process, how the EAP
affects the particular country, and how that country plans to
implement the EAP nationally through its NEAP.

The EAP was endorsed by 11 ministers of the environment in April
1993 in Lucerne, Switzerland. "It is a tool for helping governments
prepare for and set criteria for their National Environmental Action
Programs," according to EAP Translation Project Coordinator Colin
Woodard. "Since resources for investing in environmental improvements
are limited, the challenge is to identify the most pressing problems
and the most appropriate investments. The EAP helps governments
identify the most cost-effective investments and the most important
institutional and legislative changes that they should make."

Although the ministers agreed with the EAP's principles, they noted
that in order for it to be useful, it needed to be translated into
local languages. Colin is coordinating the translation, publication,
and dissemination of the EAPs to 13 countries. NGOs in Central and
Eastern Europe can obtain copies of their country's EAP through the
REC's Local Offices.

Kedves Kornyeszek!

Lantos Peter irja a #78-as szamban:
>2. Vajon a forgalom nagy reszet kik kepzik: azok akik csak munkaba jarnak
>az autoval, vagy akik dolgoznak is vele. Attol tartok az utobbi, hisz az
>egyhelyben u:lo"s munkahelyek szama keves. (Targyalni, beszerezni,
>leszallitani, kerekparral nem igen praktikus.)

Az igaz, hogy pl. kenyeret vagy sort kiszallitani eleg kenyelmetlen
kerekparral, de pl.  
targyalni menni, elvinni 3 db. papirt az igenis lehet, marpedig szerintem a
forgalom eleg nagy reszet adjak ezek a tevekenysegek. Ha azonban valaki
allitana be egy targyalasra, hat... korberohognek, mert az snassz,  mert ugye
ember inkabb ul haromnegyed orat az autoban, mintsem 20 perc alatt odaerjen  
biciklivel. Felreertes ne essek, nem vagyok autoellenes, csak ugy gondolom,
esszel kellene hasznalni. Sajnalom, hogy meg sok-sok evbe fog telni, mig az
nagy resze felfogja, hogy attol meg nem lesz kevesebb, nem lesz "kispalyas",
autoval megy a sarki boltba is. 

Szoval szerintem az akadaly a biciklizes elterjedeseben sokkal inkabb a  
gondolkodasban van, mintsem technikai dolgokban.
