> KNOWLEDGE TOOLS FOR A SUSTAINABLE CIVILIZATION
> June 8/9/10 1995 at Ryerson Polytechnic University, Toronto, Ontario,
> In a world of growing human population, equipped with powerful scientific
> and technical tools, we must be careful not to hurt Nature or ourselves.
> Layers of lead pollution originating from the smelters of the Roman Empire
> have recently been discovered in the Greenland ice. What traces are we
> going to leave behind after world wars, nuclear accidents, and the genetic
> manipulation of life?
> The snipers of Sarajevo, and events in Bosnia, Rwanda, Tienanmen Square,
> and Iraq are signs of a superficial nature of our civility. May we be
> encouraged by the generally peaceful reforms in Eastern Europe, the recent

> We call on practitioners and academics to present their views on knowledge

REC JUNIOR FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 1995
The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) is an
non-advocacy, not-for-profit foundation. It was established in 1990 by
Hungary, the United
States, and the Commission of the European Communities. The REC's mission is to
public participation in environmental decision- making in Central and Eastern
The REC primarily supports non-governmental grass-roots organizations, but also
cooperates with local authorities, national governments, academic institutions,
the media, and
the private sector. In order to improve the capacity and skills of young CEE
and their NGOs to deal with organization and management problems as well as
obstacles which have, in the past, prevented them from being as effective as
REC established the Junior Fellowship Program (JFP) in 1993. The JFP has proven
one of the most popular REC initiatives.
The Junior Fellows follow a four-week program of integrated and interactive
which address the particular needs of the region and its younger NGO members,
project management, community action planning, NGO management, campaign
media-work and communication skills, fundraising, public participation,
NGOs and civil society, using computers, and some lectures on varied topics.

community action plans.
In addition, there exists independent research opportunities utilizing the
full-capacity of REC
resources, and the possibility to work part-time on projects with REC Teams or
if requested. Workshops will be organized as much as possible for only
half-days for four
weeks, while during the rest of the time the JFs can work for either a Team
project or with
a Budapest-area NGO. This will offer a wider range of projects with more
fulfilment over a longer period of time. Before each group arrives, a list of

**Chernobyl Choo Choo Resumes Route**
For the first time in 3 years Hungary will send nuclear waste
to Russia. A train carrying about 55 tons of used fuel to be
reprocessed is set to leave the Paks Nuclear Plant sometime
soon. The actual date has not been disclosed, nor has the
trains exact route. For 2 decades the Paks plant supplied
Russia with nuclear waste used to harness energy for
electricity, but the shipments ceased due to environmental
concerns. The Czech Republic recently signed a deal to send
its waste to Russia.

Kicsit megkestem az elso szamban javasolt bemutatkozassal, mivel nem jott
ossze elsore az ujsag elofizetese. Jelenleg Angliaban tanulok egy MSc
kurzuson, kornyezeti eroforrasokrol es kornyezetvedelmi iranyelvekrol, de
az igazat megvallva, csak most, a masodik felev elejen talalkoztam olyan
eloadassal (fenntarthato mezogazdasag), ami osztatlan sikert aratott a
hallgatok koreben es vegre nekem is igazan tetszett. Egyebkent az
Agraron vegeztem otthon. Ha van valakinek egy peldanya az elso
bemutatkozo Kornyeszbol (ha volt ilyen egyaltalan), megkoszonnem, ha
elkuldene nekem. Kolost ismerem, de a tobbieket, akik irjak-olvassak a
lapot, sajnos nem.
A vasutvonalak megszunteteserol csak annyit, hogy ezek szerint a legjobb
uton vagyunk az angol minta fele: kozpontositott vonalak Londonba/bol,
delen viszonylag suru jaratok, eszakon es Skociaban egy-ket nagyvarosba
van kozvetlen vonal, ezeket leszamitva minel tavolabb mesz Londontol,
annal tragikusabb a kozlekedes. Millio atszallas, kesesek, folytonos
menetrend valtozasok4; ahol ritka vagy egyaltalan nincs vonat, ott busz
van, ha van. Par eve Yorkshire-ban jarva azert nem jutottam el valamely
gyonyoru apatsagi romhoz, mert csak hetente ketszer ment oda busz!
Persze, hogy mindenki ra van kenyszeritve az auto-hasznalatra. Nehany
vonatot pedig azert szuntettek meg, mert keves utasa volt. No, igen, az
utasoknak eleguk volt a fenti kenyelmetlensegekbol. (Volt jarat, ami
hianyzott a menetrendbol, igy alig tudottrola valaki!)
Nalunk (eddig) eleg jo volt a tomegkozlekedes. De persze el lehet venni
az ember kedvet az utazastol a tarifak emelesevel, mikozben a
szolgaltatas egyre romlik (MAV). Hova jutunk igy?
Kolos irasahoz a madaretetesrol: az angoloknal nagyon nepszeru a haloba
(amilyenben a kotozott sonka van otthon) kotott mogyoro kiakasztasa cinkek
szamara. Ez foldimogyoro, hejastol, de nem porkolve. Bar itt ho nincs,
csak hideg, ha meg tudom oldani a folyamatos elletast, talan kiprobalom.
Sok sikert az otthoni etetesekhez is!
