Kerlek tovabbitsatok ezt potencialis erdeklodoknek (kornyeszeti szakok, NGOk
stb faliujsagjai, stb).


The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) is an
non-advocacy, not-for-profit foundation.  It was established in 1990 by
Hungary, the United
States, and the Commission of the European Communities. The REC's mission is to
public participation in environmental decision- making in Central and Eastern
Europe (CEE). 
The REC primarily supports non-governmental grass-roots organizations, but also

cooperates with local authorities, national governments, academic institutions,
the media, and
the private sector. In order to improve the capacity and skills of young CEE
and their NGOs to deal with organization and management problems as well as
obstacles which have, in the past, prevented them from being as effective as
possible, the 
REC established the Junior Fellowship Program (JFP) in 1993. The JFP has proven
to be
one of the most popular REC initiatives.

The Junior Fellows follow  a four-week program of  integrated and interactive
which address the particular needs of the region and its younger NGO members,
project management, community action planning, NGO management, campaign
media-work and communication skills, fundraising, public participation,
strategic planning,
NGOs and civil society,  using computers, and some lectures on varied topics.
Fellows can
develop products individually tailored for the needs of each person and their
NGOs during
the series of workshops, that can and will be applied when they return to their
own country
such as project proposals and funding strategies,  press releases, and
community action plans.

In addition, there exists independent research opportunities utilizing the
full-capacity of REC 
resources, and the possibility to work part-time on projects with REC Teams or
local NGOs 
if requested. Workshops will be organized as much as possible for only
half-days for four
weeks, while during the rest of the time the JFs can work for either a Team
project or with
a Budapest-area NGO. This will offer a wider range of projects with more
relevance and 
fulfilment over a longer period of time. Before each group arrives, a list of
projects available 
will be sent to them with a request to number their top three choices and we
will try to
match them.

Junior Fellows should come from a variety of backgrounds and from throughout
Central and Eastern European region. They should be between 20 and 30 years
old, share a
strong interest in improving the environmental situation in the CEE region, be
active in an 
environmental NGO, have citizenship in one of the participating countries, and
speak and 
write English well. Fellows spend four weeks at  the REC Head Office in
Budapest. For the 
1995 sessions, the REC is inviting participants from Albania, Armenia,
Azerbaijan, Belarus,
Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan,
Latvia, Lithuania,
Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and

The REC will cover all costs including accommodation, travel and daily
expenses. There are
five application periods for left for 1995. The following periods are scheduled
for 1995:

Fellowship period: 					Application Deadline 	
January 31 - March 1					December 1, 1994 
March 28 - April 26					February 1, 1995

**Chernobyl Choo Choo Resumes Route**
  For the first time in 3 years Hungary will send nuclear waste
  to Russia. A train carrying about 55 tons of used fuel to be
  reprocessed is set to leave the Paks Nuclear Plant sometime
  soon. The actual date has not been disclosed, nor has the
  trains exact route. For 2 decades the Paks plant supplied
  Russia with nuclear waste used to harness energy for
  electricity, but the shipments ceased due to environmental
  concerns. The Czech Republic recently signed a deal to send
  its waste to Russia.

Kedves Kornyeszek!

Kicsit megkestem az elso szamban javasolt bemutatkozassal, mivel nem jott 
ossze elsore az ujsag elofizetese. Jelenleg Angliaban tanulok egy MSc 
kurzuson, kornyezeti eroforrasokrol es kornyezetvedelmi iranyelvekrol, de 
az igazat megvallva, csak most, a masodik felev elejen talalkoztam olyan 
eloadassal (fenntarthato mezogazdasag), ami osztatlan sikert aratott a 
hallgatok koreben es vegre nekem is igazan tetszett. Egyebkent az 
Agraron vegeztem otthon. Ha van valakinek egy peldanya az elso 
bemutatkozo Kornyeszbol (ha volt ilyen egyaltalan), megkoszonnem, ha 
elkuldene nekem. Kolost ismerem, de a tobbieket, akik irjak-olvassak a 
lapot, sajnos nem.

A vasutvonalak megszunteteserol csak annyit, hogy ezek szerint a legjobb 
uton vagyunk az angol minta fele: kozpontositott vonalak Londonba/bol, 
delen viszonylag suru jaratok, eszakon es Skociaban egy-ket nagyvarosba 
van kozvetlen vonal, ezeket leszamitva minel tavolabb mesz Londontol, 
annal tragikusabb a kozlekedes. Millio atszallas, kesesek, folytonos 
menetrend valtozasok4; ahol ritka vagy egyaltalan nincs vonat, ott busz 
van, ha van. Par eve Yorkshire-ban jarva azert nem jutottam el valamely 
gyonyoru apatsagi romhoz, mert csak hetente ketszer ment oda busz! 
Persze, hogy mindenki ra van kenyszeritve az auto-hasznalatra. Nehany 
vonatot pedig azert szuntettek meg, mert keves utasa volt. No, igen, az 
utasoknak eleguk volt a fenti kenyelmetlensegekbol. (Volt jarat, ami 
hianyzott a menetrendbol, igy alig tudottrola valaki!)
Nalunk (eddig) eleg jo volt a tomegkozlekedes. De persze el lehet venni 
az ember kedvet az utazastol a tarifak emelesevel, mikozben a 
szolgaltatas egyre romlik (MAV). Hova jutunk igy?

Kolos irasahoz a madaretetesrol: az angoloknal nagyon nepszeru a haloba 
(amilyenben a kotozott sonka van otthon) kotott mogyoro kiakasztasa cinkek 
szamara. Ez foldimogyoro, hejastol, de nem porkolve. Bar itt ho nincs, 
csak hideg, ha meg tudom oldani a folyamatos elletast, talan kiprobalom. 
Sok sikert az otthoni etetesekhez is!
