Jana Mikota Dystopien, Negativ-Utopien oder Anti-Utopien erleben spätestens seit dem Erscheinen der Romantrilogie The Hunger Games der us-amerikanischen Autorin Suzanne Collins eine Hochzeit. Explikat Dystopien der aktuellen Jugendliteratur orientieren sich an klassischen Dystopien von Huxley, Orwell, Bradbury und Atwood, greifen Aspekte aus den Texten auf, verweisen auf diese Texte und ergänzen sie. Der vorliegende Beitrag unterscheidet zwei Gruppen von Dystopien: (1) die ökologische Dystopie (z. Die ökologische Dystopie greift den ökologischen Diskurs auf, zeigt, welche Folgen atomare oder Umweltkatastrophen haben, benennt teilweise klar Schuldige und spielt in einer nahen Zukunft.

Sustainable Development Goals and the Post-2015 Agenda The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the global framework to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development by 2030. The new objectives, a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), will be formally adopted by the international community at a dedicated UN Summit to take place from the 25 to 27 September. The 2030 Agenda was informally agreed by consensus at the UN in August this year. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda agreed in July also forms an integral part of the 2030 Agenda by setting out tools, policies and resources that need to be put in place to ensure that it can be implemented. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will respond comprehensively to global challenges. The 2030 Agenda is a universal agreement; its implementation will require action by all countries, developed and developing. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are: Goal 1. The European Union's contribution to the 2030 Agenda The EU remains the world's most open market.

Dankzij deze man kwam er 53 jaar geleden geen WO III | Koude Oorlog Voormalig US Air Force-piloot John Bordne moest 53 jaar lang de lippen stijf op elkaar houden over een incident dat op 28 oktober 1962 bijna de Derde Wereldoorlog inluidde. Pas onlangs kreeg hij van de Amerikaanse luchtmacht de toestemming om te praten over wat er 53 jaar geleden bijna misliep. Hij deed zijn verhaal aan Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, een Amerikaans (ondertussen online) magazine dat bestaat sinds 1945. Kort na middernacht op 28 oktober 1962, in volle Cubaanse raketcrisis, begon Bordne aan zijn shift op een van de vier geheime Amerikaanse raketlanceerbases op het Japanse eiland Okinawa. Op dat moment waren de spanningen met Rusland bijzonder hoog. Identieke codes 'Dit kan echt zijn, of anders de grootste flater van ons leven zijn' De start van zijn shift begon zoals gewoonlijk, herinnert Bordne zich. De lanceerofficier van Bordnes ploeg, kapitein William Bassett, mocht na de reeks identieke codes een zakje openen met daarin het derde deel van de code. "Schiet hem neer"

Farm Worker Issues : National Farm Worker Ministry Agricultural work is hard work. In order to feed the country, an estimated 2-3 million farm workers labor in the fields across the United States, including handpicking the vast majority of fruit and vegetable crops produced here. In many cases these workers are young adults or even children; in all cases, farm workers are excluded from important national labor protections that other workers possess. For their demanding physical labor, farm workers earn, on average, between $12,500 to $14,999 a year for individuals and $17,500 to $19,999 for a family. In a movement to turn this system around, farm workers are organizing to demand a seat at the table with the people and institutions that have the ability to change their inhumane working and living conditions.

Sverker Sörlin skriver lysande om antropocen År 2000 satt Nobelpristagaren i kemi Paul Crutzen på en konferens i Mexiko och kände sig irriterad. Anledningen var det lilla ordet ”holocen”, beteckningen på vår nuvarande geologiska epok. Problemet, ansåg han, var att det hade blivit för vittomfattande – i ena stunden refererade det till tiden för uppfinnandet av plogen, i nästa till tiden för kärnvapensprängningar. Bild: Sofia Runarsdotter Anekdoten är numera legendarisk och jag läser den i Sverker Sörlins nyutkomna bok ”Antropocen. Crutzen, skriver Sörlin, var förmodligen inte säker på vad han menade med antropocen i stunden, därför satte han sig ner och preciserade det i en artikel i Ambio. Därefter spreds ordet som en löpeld. För den som vill förstå implikationerna av detta kan jag varmt rekommendera Sörlins bok. Bild: Fredrik Sandberg/TT Ibland tror vissa att vår generation är den första att oroa sig för miljöförstöringen. Det är en lysande bok som Sörlin har skrivit, både konkret och poetisk på samma gång.

Atlas for a Changing Planet Understanding natural and human systems is an essential first step toward reducing the severity of climate change and adapting to a warmer future. Maps and geographic information systems are the primary tools by which scientists, policymakers, planners, and activists visualize and understand our rapidly changing world. Spatial information informs decisions about how to build a better future. Scroll down or click below to explore a sampling of maps from Esri's ArcGIS Online resource on these themes: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Launch Content Marketing Program with Step-by-Step Workbook Does either of these statements describe your organization? A. Content is everyone’s responsibility – but it’s no one’s job. B. Content marketing is treated as a project, not a process integrated into every function of the organization. If you picked A or B, keep reading – help is on the way. In reality, content marketing should be a component of your existing marketing strategy, not a separate entity. One of CMI’s goals is to help organizations transform their marketing operations – from a subservient function that merely describes the value of a product or service into an enterprise-wide presence that capitalizes on the benefits of content-based engagement. But, to do this, you need to move beyond viewing content marketing as an on-demand service to support sales and start thinking of content marketing in terms of how it can truly impact the business. To help you in this transformation, we created a new workbook, Launch Your Own Content Marketing Program. Some questions to ask:

The Child Labor Education Project Today, approximately 215 million children, many as young as five, are involved in child labor around the globe. Child labor is work that harms children or keeps them from attending school. It involves work by children under conditions that are hazardous, illegal, or exploitive. The Child Labor Public Education Project of the University of Iowa Labor Center and Center for Human Rights provides educational workshops and materials on a range of issues regarding child labor in the U.S. and other countries: causes and consequences of child labor history of child labor in the U.S. effects of child labor on children’s health and workers’ rights and international issues such as workers’ rights, trade, and economic policies.

Homemade Cleaning Wipes - Nature's Nurture Homemade cleaning wipes are so easy to make, create zero waste, and are much healthier for you and the environment! Before we made the switch to natural, greener household cleaners, there was one product that lived underneath every single sink in my house: the tall plastic cylinder filled with disinfecting wipes. You know the one. It looked a little something like this —–> Maybe you use them too? They’re just so darn convenient, aren’t they? A pre-soaked, tough cleaning cloth that wipes down any surface leaving it clean and disinfected? Except that they aren’t quite so awesome… Why commercial cleaning wipes aren’t so awesome They may be convenient, but those Clorox® or Lysol® disinfecting wipes can wreak havoc on your health, your home, and the environment. They’re wasteful. And that’s not even considering the issues that come with that “99% of bacteria” statement. What about safer commercial wipes? Make your own homemade cleaning wipes! I’m using a repurposed quart-sized pickle jar. Notes
