Rio, ekologija, izbori, i još po nešto


Jučerašnja vest je glasila: Novoizabrani predsednik Srbije Tomislav Nikolić, odlazeći ministar ekologije Oliver Dulić, i odlazeći ministar inostranih poslova (a novoizabrani predsedavajući Generalne skupštine UN) Vuk Jeremić, putuju u Rio, na veliki skup UN o održivom razvoju, Rio +20.

Aktivan pristup domaćih visoih zvaničnika vezan za globalne ekološke teme za svaku je pohvalu. U načelu.

Simptomatično je, međutim, da se tokom duge izborne kampanje, koja je završena pre samo nekoliko nedelja, pitanjima ekologije i održivog razvoj skoro uopšte nisu bavili.

Upravo o toj temi pisala sam za online magazin o ekologiji koji okuplja 35 novinarki i novinara iz celog sveta:  Think Brigade. Naslov teksta je: Serbian Election Campaign fails to address environmental concerns.
Evo zaključka teksta:
With environmental and other vital issues being placed on the back burner of the political agenda in Serbia, and with a sporadic public awareness focused on local problems, the  improvement would be, at best – slow. One can only hope for the advancement of Serbia’s integration into the European Union, which would in turn push for more rapid and encompassing reforms within this sphere – as it did with a number of other countries that joined Serbia during the previous decade. One can only hope that the vitality of the EU remains in place at this point.


Za Think Brigade sam pisala i tekst koji nema veze sa izborima: Ecovillages: Muddy Roads and Clear Visions. U ovom tekstu koji smo zajedno pisale Andrea Aržaba i ja bavimo se jednim eko selom u Meksiku i jednim u Srbiji (Porodica bistrih potoka).
Evo ilustracije i ovog teksta:
Leaving the opening of the exhibition devoted to 35th anniversary of the Family of Clear Springs (Porodica bistrih potoka), eco and artistic community in Serbia, I felt different than on the arrival. Half an hour of daring photos, simple wooden and vegatable sculptures, music, wise and sincere words and, most importantly, of people that gathered in Belgrade cultural institution Dom omladine, brought the sense of freshness, inspiration, liberty; feeling that experimenting and doing things differently could be rewarding in many ways. Challenging as well. Boyish look and charisma of Bozidar Mandic, founder and principal of the Family, now in his 60s, tells that 35 years of connecting nature and arts kept his body and spirit young, and his ideas, it seems, fresher and more relevant than ever.
