Thank you. We are looking forward to being a part of this community, and, too, to learning what topics would be most important for the conference. We would warmly welcome all of your ideas.

Basicaly the research at the State Agronomical Institute labs is aimed to define among the many plant species what are those more suited to different soil types and geographic regions since they do not compete with edible plants.

Thanks for the welcome and letting us know about this site.

Investors Against Genocide is running a campaign to make sure mutual funds don't make investments that contribute to genocide. We have submitted resolutions to more than 50 mutual funds.

We need supporters to let shareholders know to vote their proxies, particularly those with Fidelity funds since there are votes on the issue scheduled in March, April, and May.

Go to for more information.

To Development Crossing

Well, I know that this site's just underwent to modifications but I would like to suggest a feature that could be added to the site: currrently when the user is viewing the members page, it shows (mark) those that are online at the moment displaying "on line" in green letters under his/her photo. My suggestion is: to allow the members to interact with each other much like an MSN Messenger - by simply clicking on the photo, that in turn would open a window prompting them to chat. I don't know if someone else have already suggested that or if it is already 'in the works' by Development Crossing but it would be nice to have something like that.
Best regards

I go to school in a city that is very environmentally friendly, and aware of its impact so environmental studies just seemed to fit with ease here. Currently, my school only has a minor in it, but i'm sure that will change soon!
My sustainable class incorporates the business and social side of sustainability. We read case studies on successful business techniques using microlending, and focusing on the "bottom of the pyramid." Recently, the co-founder of Fair Indigo (a great fair trade clothing company) came in to speak to us, and the head of the department for Sustainability in SC Johnson. It is the first time this class has been offered at my school, and it is a great opportunity to be part of it!
