Hello, I work as a trainer and auditor for the London Environment Centre. Most of the organization's clients are SMEs looking to green their products, services and internal practices.

My focus is on developing and running training programs in addition to conducting environmental assessments and audits for the above sector. Most of the work we do is funded through ESF, ERDF and the LDA but we also have some larger commercial clients.

If you are interested in any environmental topics and want to chat drop me a line!

Climate change and the mass media

There seems to be a lot of debate and a growing number of empirical studies on how climate change is reported in the prestige press. What I am wondering, however, is if climate scientists and journalists have failed to see the importance of targeting popular media sources (e.g The Sun in the UK) in order to expand the climate change discussion.

Hello Sven,

I wasn't able to open the link you posted on your thread. What you're proposing sounds very interesting but could you give some more specifics (e.g. audience, time-frame, will this be done commercially, location, etc..).

I look forward to hearing from you,

I would value your opinion on : ... would you like to team up to organise a lecture series on how to create welfare thanks to the Kyoto Protocol for developing countries and NGO's ?

Hey Denise!
Happy to be connected with you in this network group!
Hope to contribute a little bit more than so far...

I have held similar views about UNEP before and did not think they were set up to do field projects. Their strength was originally in the intellectual arena and most of the best achievements were when they sought to connect science with diplomacy to effect international action. I am an enthusiastic supporter of the Brazil-born (yes) Executive Director, Achim Steiner, and believe he will help to give the organization a new focus. And as for the thesis, I can only share a piece of advice I once received from Professor Raphael Kaplinsky at Sussex University and have share it at every opportunity: "The purpose of doing a thesis is to finish it." Wishing you will with your writing. You have no monopoly in tht department: I am working on a book on resistance to new technologies which is not moving as fast as I can. It seems that self-administration of macumba does not guarantee good results...

Hi! Sorry for the delayed response but i am a few weeks to deadline on my dissertation so its been quite hectic!

You're right, the ethanol story has definitely developed since the time of your thesis. Wow, you started an organization! That's great! Do you guys do a lot of work with UNEP or are you more focused on small-scale projects? Personally, I'm not a big UNEP fan because i feel that in many cases they get caught up in certain trends and pour money in projects fitting with these trends and then once the prjoect is complete, or too big of a mess to contnue, they leave what they were working on in a very similar state as it was prior to their 'aid'. well, enough ranting and raving. :D to answer your question, I'm brazilian but i left the country w/ my family when i was 14. we moved to texas where i did my high school and then i went to uni in DC. since then i've been in greece, italy and now england, so a lot of moving around (and even more un-brazilianizing in the process). hehe so, you need to teach me some of the macumba techniques you were talking about, they might help expediate my writing process for my dissertation! although, like the state of my country, i might be in too dire a situation for it to have any effects on my current progress :) haha

I spent a year in Brazil looking at technological innovation in Brazilian fuel ethanol program and then compared it with project performance in Kenya and Zimbabwe. It was for my doctoral thesis at Sussex Universities and went there at the recommendation of my fellow Brazilian students. But as you can appreciate, this was only aspect of ethanol anyone could study. There were issues such as land-use conflict which never turned out to be a problem because the ethanol was coming mainly from surplus sugar. In effect, it was not an energy program but a sugar reduction effort. I learned a lot about technology strategies from this experience and applied some of the knowledge in Africa. Maybe the most important idea I brought to Africa was the role of think tanks in democratic change and ended creating the African Centre for Technology Studies in Nairobi. I was particularly impressed by the work of Fundación João Piñeiro and Fundación Getúlio Vargas, in addition of course to the work that was going on at the time fermentation technology in various institutions. It was also the year the Tancredo Neves and and my macumba techniques could not help the country slide into a period despair. I have since then closely followed the rise of Brazil. Do you still have strong connections there?

Hi Denise,

I hope to meet you to discuss about environmental issues. This time, I am in University of Oregon. On September, I will go to University of California, Davis. I think if I have a chance to meet you, it is very extremely good time for me.
