Sustainable Research - Tree Planting in Godollo

 The last month has seen the planting of 50 beautiful native fruit trees which were bought with the donations we received from the CONVERGE workshop participants to offset the CO2 emmissions of the event in June 2012 in Gödöllő. The saplings are from Gyula Kovács who have one of the largest gene bank of native fruit trees - Elvgarden. The fruit saplings were given and planted at the following places, organisations:

Local primary and secondary schools - 5 trees

The winner houses of the "Clean Garden Tidy House" competition - 10 trees

The Hngarian members of the CONVEGE team - 7 trees

Members of the Gödöllő Climate Club - 20 trees "Open Garden"

Organic practice garden of Szent István University - 8 trees

 For more information on our tree planting please see project partner Green Dependent and their story on the event.

 


"Global Convergence on a Finite Planet" - Event in India

 "Global Convergence on a Finite Planet". Conference in India: 21st-23rd, 2013.

Venue: SCAD Francis Xavier Engineering College, Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu

Recognising that the sustainable development challenge is becoming increasingly acute, in the face of population growth, escalating consumption, a sharp rich-poor divide, environmental pressures, and climate change - the CONVERGE project focuses on how a transition to global equity for human society within the finite limits of our one planet (- Convergence) might inform EU policy. The recent context of the failures of the international SD processes at Rio to develop real ways forward indicate that we cannot simply slide SDGs into the system and expect radical change. From a Convergence perspective the way forward needs to be constructed by taking on the challenges of the Brundtland report and focussing on ’ Equity within Planetary Boundaries’. The issue of equity and development has been the reef on which international cooperation has foundered. Crucially, the discussions of the proposed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are bringing environment and development agendas move closer together. This will greatly strengthen the ability of a more united movement to work for the radical changes necessary for all our futures.

Concept note and call for papers:

Key Overall Question: Can Convergence be a unifying frame for Environment and Development movements and international agreements?

Specifically: how can Convergence contribute to the development of effective and equitable international Sustainable Development Goals ?

23.5% of the world’s population, approximately 1.6 Billion people, are now ‘on-line’ using the Internet to exchange information and connect. That number is growing every day (Miniwatts 2009). Here is the CONVERGE project’s small attempt at harnessing that potential towards our research.

We are inviting you to join our CONVERGE Alliance – a collaborative learning network where you can engage in rich dialogue with us and with each other in an intentional, generative collaboration towards innovation. We would like you to support us by sharing your expertise, insights, comments, feedback and ideas without which we already know this project is a mere shadow of is true potential.
