Small islands, champions of sustainability

first_imgIn Zlarin, from this Friday 01.07.2016. in the Vesna Parun Homeland Museum, starting at 20:30 pm, an international traveling exhibition of photographs of small sustainable islands around the world is being held.Since 2014, the Small Sustainable Islands initiative, with the support of the Conservatoire du Littoral, has been developed with the aim of encouraging dialogue between participants working on a daily basis to protect the islands and valorise their actions: local associations, authorities, protected area managers, businesses… In this context, the annual CELEBRATE ISLANDS celebration offers an opportunity to express the uniqueness for which they unite people in their environment. This is the first major step towards creating an international solidarity community of small islands oriented towards sustainable development.Ultimately, the Small Sustainable Islands Initiative will help create a broad network of exchange of experiences and good practices, encourage and reward local efforts by its members, including through the Small Sustainable Island label.The small islands are fragile and unique. They are at the forefront of global change, these are the first areas and places of innovation, which are constantly renewed due to their own sustainable development. Recycling waste, conserving water resources, promoting renewable energy, protecting biodiversity, valorizing cultural heritage… more than just a call to travel, this exhibition highlights the concrete actions of more than 30 small islands around the world for the challenges of tomorrow. The traveling exhibition, organized by the Conservatoire du littoral and their partners as part of the third edition of CELEBRATE ISLANDS, has already been presented in France, Spain, Tunisia and Mozambique, and now in Croatia.By organizing this photo exhibition, cooperation was established Zlarin Tourist Board and Kud Koralj and MIC-Vis (international multidisciplinary scientific conference organized jointly by VERN ‘Polytechnic and Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences under the auspices of the City of Vis) with Conservatoire du littoral and laid the foundations for future cooperation which can emphasize the importance of natural and cultural sights , and the need for sustainable management of island areas in order to preserve their heritage.The Conservatory of Littoral Founded 41 years ago, the Conservatoire du littoral (Coastal Protection Agency) is a public institution for the protection of the coastal area through the purchase of land in mainland France and French overseas estates and through technical and institutional cooperation abroad. For more than 10 years, she has led projects specifically dedicated to small islands, monitored and supported local associations, protected areas and governments in their small island planning and management policies and operations. The Conservatoire du littoral provides international support to civil society organizations in the protection of the island’s heritage.last_img read more

Malicious Mischief Encountered In White Rock

first_imgBy JIM COBBLEWhite RockAs per property convenants in the La Senda neighborhood (in White Rock), a 10-ft right of way exists between various lots, initially for equestrian use but commonly used now for pedestrian foot traffic. While walking on the seldom-used passage between 121 and 123 La Senda, among high weeds, I got sucker punched Thursday evening. It was unmitigated malicious mischief.Some one had strung a tripwire — a metal wire — 6 inches off the ground between a fence on one side and a juniper tree on the other. I went down hard and cut my hand. I was lucky.Like in Viet Nam in 1967, there could have been punji sticks. But the tripwire was the same. Don’t know if the wire might have taken down a horse. Horses are bigger than I am. I would write this off as a one-of-a-kind delinquency of some sort, but it is possible there may be more than one occurrence of this sort of thing. The neighborhood needs to be alert. Someone could be seriously hurt. Map depicting location of a tripwire placed 6 inches off the ground between a fence and a juniper tree.
