Effective Advocacy in the European Environmental Decision-making Process -- BNA Webinar

Effective Advocacy in the European Environmental Decision-making Process webinar

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM ET

This webinar will facilitate a discussion about how to conduct effective advocacy in the European environmental decision-making process. Using examples from chemicals legislation, such as REACH and RoHS, climate change policy, and related litigation, the panelists will identify the players and processes that create and enforce European environmental law and policy and how and when one can engage in the process, from initial consultations to litigation in the courts. Important differences with advocacy in the United States will be highlighted, and practical advice will be provided for those working with companies doing business with or in the EU market.

The 90-minute presentation is designed to help you:

•Understand how European environmental law and policy is created and how you can be an effective advocate in that process.

•Learn about the interaction between European environmental law and the national environmental law of the individual 27 European member states.

•Identify differences between the United States and EU in the creation and implementation of environmental law and policy

State of the World 2012 Launch and Symposium -- Worldwatch Institute

State of the World 2012 Launch and Symposium -- Worldwatch Institute

One week from today, the Worldwatch Institute celebrates the release of State of the World 2012: Moving Toward Sustainable Prosperity. This special edition of Worldwatch's flagship publication aims to facilitate dialogue around the issue of sustainable and equitable development by showcasing the creative policies and fresh approaches that will take center stage at this year's Rio+20 U.N. Conference.

To celebrate, we are inviting all of our D.C., Maryland, and Virginia friends to join us at the Woman's National Democratic Club for the State of the World 2012: Moving Toward Sustainable Prosperity launch and symposium on April 11. The event is free of charge, but space is limited.

If you live outside the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, we invite you to participate in the event via webstream on the Worldwatch website on the day of the symposium.

The event will feature some of the book's key contributors, who will share their expertise and ideas on how we can achieve sustainable development.

Speakers will include:

Worldwatch President Robert Engelman and Project Co-directors Michael Renner and Erik Assadourian

Report co-authors Joe Foti of the World Resources Institute, Mia MacDonald of Brighter Green, Michael Replogle and Colin Hughes of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, Diana Lind of Next American City, and Bo Normander of Worldwatch Europe

(Via satellite) Severn Suzuki, who shook the global community as a young girl making a strong declaration at the first Rio Summit and has been an environmental champion ever since.

The symposium will take place from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on April 11 at The Whittemore House, 1526 New Hampshire Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., 20036 (map). A reception with food and refreshments will follow the event. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP now.
We hope you can join us - either in person or online - to discuss this critical sustainability topic.

Little Fish, Big Impact -- Lenfest Ocean Program

Little Fish, Big Impact an April 2012 report from the Lenfest Ocean Program of the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science at Stony Brook University finds that;

From the Summary
"Forage fish are small to medium-sized species that include anchovies, herring, menhaden, and sardines. Direct catch of forage fish makes up more than one-third of the world’s marine fish catch and has contributed to the collapse of some forage fish populations. In the most comprehensive global analysis of forage fish management to date, the Task Force found that conventional management can be risky for forage fish because it does not adequately account for their wide population swings and high catchability. It also fails to capture the critical role of forage fish as food for marine mammals, seabirds, and commercially important fish such as tuna, salmon, and cod. The report recommends cutting catch rates in half in many ecosystems and doubling the minimum biomass of forage fish that must be left in the water, compared to conventional management targets. Even more stringent measures are advised when important biological information is missing."
