 International Dialogue On Sustainable Development
  To Be Conducted On The Internet

New York, NY -- An international essay-writing competition with
$100,000 in prizes for the best essays on sustainable development is
being sponsored by the Earth Pledge Foundation, it was announced by
Leslie Hoffman, executive director of the Earth Pledge Foundation. An
innovative prize structure with interim awards has been created to
promote a year-long, worldwide dialogue on this critical issue.

The concept of sustainable development was endorsed by the 1992
United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (also known
as the Earth Summit) in Rio. The competition and dialogue will be
conducted on the Internet via the Earth Pledge Foundation's World
Wide Web server. The URL is http://www.earthpledge.org/. The United
Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which has a strategic alliance
with the Earth Pledge Foundation, will assist contestants without
access to the Internet by allowing them to send submissions by mail
to regional offices around the world.

A grand prize of $25,000 will be awarded to the best essay. Runner-up
prizes will be awarded in each of four categories: General Public;
Academics, Scientists and Journalists; Industry and Non Governmental
Organizations (NGO's); and Individuals under the age of 18. An
additional category for children's artwork will open later in the

Each essay will be evaluated by an international panel of judges.
Scores will be determined on the basis of five criteria: writing
quality, originality of concept, persuasiveness of argument,
practicality of solution, and factual accuracy.

"It is not our aim to invite polemics for either side of the
conflict between environmentalists and developers," said Theodore W.
Kheel, president of the Earth Pledge Foundation. "We are looking for
a full exploration of how to make the Earth a sustainable

Throughout the year-long competition, information will be added
regularly to the server and contestants will be encouraged to check
in often. Interim prizes of $500 will be awarded every two months and
winning essays, along with the judges opinions, will be displayed to
stimulate an ongoing dialogue. The contest's final winners will be
announced at an awards dinner sometime after the closing of the
contest on April 9, 1996. A book of all winning essays will be
published and distributed worldwide.

The Foundation was formed in 1991 by Theodore W. Kheel, its
president, to create public awareness of, and interest in, the United
Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro.
EPF has continued to promote sustainable development, the primary
concept advanced by the Earth Summit, through a variety of
interconnected projects, many of which involve the recital of the
Earth Pledge:

"Recognizing that people's actions toward nature and each other are
the source of growing damage to the environment and resources needed
to meet human needs and ensure survival and development, I pledge to
act to the best of my ability to help make the earth a secure and
hospitable home for present and future generations."

Wolf Gyuri Ladakh-beszamolojarol a kovetkezo a velemenyem:

Az onellatas "nagy aranak" es nyilvan kegyetlen dolognak tartja, hogy a 
nepesseg jelentos reszet kolostorba kuldtek.Csakhogy egy zart teruleten 
(mint Ladakh, vagy a Fold bolygo)
termeszetes korlatai vannak az elelmiszertermelesnek, mig a nepesseg 
szaporodasa atmenetileg tulhaladhatja a fenntarthato elemiszertermeles 
hozamat.(azonmodon, hogy bevonnak nem fenntarthatoan termelt termeket is, 
de ez katasztrofahoz vezet)
Vagyis a hatekony fogamzasgatlas kora elott mindenhol "szabalyoztak" a 
nepesseget, volt ahol a csecsemok megolesevel( allitolag Kina egyes 
reszein ma is megolik a lanycsecsemok egy reszet)
mashol, az onszabalyozashoz nem eleg zart kozossegekben az idonkent 
ismetlodo haboruk, ehinsegek es jarvanyok vegeztek ezt.Ehhez kepest a 
Ladakhi modszer a leghumanusabbnak tunik!
Gondolom, ma mar a fogamzasgatlok megoldhatnak ezt a problemat, de a 
"fejlodes" Ladakhban ,es mashol ugy soporte el a regi 
nepessegszabalyozast, hogy nem hozott ujat helyette. Ha jol ertem, ma mar 
a nepesseg ott is szaporodik, vagyis a Ladakhiak is ratertek a vilag nagy resze utjara, 
ahol, tudomasul kell vennunk, joval tobb ember el, mint amennyi szamara 
fenntarthato modon elelmiszer termelheto!A mai vegyszeres-iparositott 
mezogazdasag rovid uton elpusztitja a talajokat, stb.stb. hozzajon a 
felmelegedes, nemsokara szembe kell neznunk a "globalis 
nepessegszabalyozas" kerdesevel, nem tudom, adatik -e  majd ehhez olyan 
humanus eszkoz, mint a Ladakhiake volt.
A ladakhi "fejlodes" nekem inkabb bomlasnak tunik, persze, az, ha ok 
megmaradnak elszigetelten a vilagtol, az mit sem valtoztat az emberiseg 
tobbi reszenek katasztrofaba rohanasan.
A kerdes nem Ladakh sorsa, hanem az emberisege, es engem nem tolt el 
optimizmussal, ha kepzett ember egy ilyen folyamatot latva csak olyan 
semmit nem jelento es sokszor cafolt kozhelyet tud mondani, hogy:" 
Velemenyem szerint a fejlodest nem lehet leallitani, (s nem is kell),".
Egy problema megoldasanak legalapvetobb feltetele, hogy azt problemanak 
tekintsuk.Ha  a "jelenseg" a "fejlodes" velejaroja, akkor nincs mit 
megoldani rajta.

      Jo lenne persze, ha minel tobb helyrol es tobb helyen jelenne meg nekik
a kep - fogyasztvan ilyen modon a fax-papirjukat...
