This Group's Picture (above): Explained February 17, 2005 11:32 AM

The current picture for this Care2 group is of the Iwokrama Field Station, near Kurupukari, Guyana. The Iwokrama International Centre was established to promote "the conservation and the sustainable and equitable use of tropical rain forests in a manner that leads to lasting ecological, economic, and social benefits to the people of Guyana and to the world in general, by undertaking research, training, and the development and dissemination of technologies." The Academy for Conservation and Peace plans to locate our campus within a reasonable distance from the Iwokrama Field Station. This will allow for easy collaboration between our two organizations.

hello, i am ecstatic at this new venture. i would love the opportunity to go to guyana and learn more about sustainable development/engineering. i am off to costa rica in may to learn how their culture deals with the impacts of technological progress without endangering their environment. it is truly exciting to see more active people becoming involved in the extremely important issue of trying to eliminate the negative impacts that humans have on the ecosystem. the emphasis in my studies has been human impacts on watersheds, sediment studies and development of constructed wetlands to treat municipal wastewater. those are just a few of my favorites. i hope to become more involved with this venture. sincerely, cathie  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
I'm impressed April 07, 2005 8:33 PM

with what you are doing. It sort of sounds like "on the rez to the south side." Perhaps we could swap some notes or teach at each others facility. Eco construction is my speciality area. I'm always looking to learn what's new in the field. This looks awesome!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
