Prevention and Zero Waste.

ZERI Certification Training Course, New York
November 10 - 13, 2006, February 23 - 26, 2007 and May 4 - 7, 2007

ZERI stands for Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives (see Zero Emissions means zero waste. . . zero pollution.
Research is about learning: finding appropriate technologies to meet
people's needs in a smarter way - in a way that reinforces natural
systems rather than depleting natural resources. And initiatives are
action: real projects and real developments within communities and
within businesses that provide jobs and create wealth by imitating
natural systems and using waste as a resource.

The ZERI Training Program is designed to provide a deep understanding
of systems thinking, knowledge of the Five Kingdoms of Nature,
information about innovative technologies for implementing ZERI
systems, introduction to the ZERI methodology, and development of
skills for implementing projects.

Building on the sciences of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, ZERI
recognizes that whatever is waste for a species of one kingdom of
Nature is a nutrient for a living organism in another kingdom. ZERI
was launched in 1994 at the United Nations University in Japan as a
network of scientists committed to finding innovative and practical
solutions based on sustainable natural systems. It has evolved into a
network of hundreds of ZERI-trained practitioners who are undertaking
more than 60 projects on five continents.

The ZERI Training Program is spread out over a six month period that
includes a total of 12 days divided into three modules with a team of
instructors including ZERI founder, Gunter Pauli. Included in the
course will be case studies of ZERI projects and at least one site
visit to evaluate various projects within the context of the ZERI
methodology. The goal is to expand the pool of inspired, energetic
ZERI-trained and certified individuals who can apply the ZERI
principles and methodology in their communities and in their work.

The dates have been chosen in order to accommodate teachers' schedules.

Location: Glynwood Center, Cold Springs, NY.
