ZERI is a systems approach that views waste as resource; that utilizes
Nature's five kingdoms to develop both food stocks for local communities and
also value-added businesses that generate revenue; and that allows people,
companies and communities to do more with what Nature produces rather than
asking Nature to produce more. For more information, visit
http://www.zeri.org. 

ZERI initiatives were undertaken around the world. The ZERI project design
has 
entered diverse areas such as 

1. an integrated approach to refugee camps (in cooperation with RMI and the
US 
Navy), 
2. a response to the crisis in shrimp farming (Ecuador), 
3. a vision on how to use rubble from tunnel construction (Italy), 
4. the design of a few products which integrate a complete ecosystem
(biowatch in Brazil and sweaters in New Mexico) 
5. the use of anhydrates (from the chemical industry) and waste tyres
(border 
between Mexico and USA) 

Most importantly, the ZERI Educational Initiative includes now 36 fairy
tales as the basis for a program called :from fairy tales to reality. This
inspirational program builds simulatenous on academic knowledge, emotional
intelligence, artistic expression and systems thinking. 

All these initiatives are expected to evolve dramatically in the next years.

Together, they heighten the need for trained individuals who deeply
understand the ZERI methodology and its applications and benefits; can
credibly represent ZERI in public and private settings; and can help
substantially to establish ZERI in US communities and schools. 

The ZERI Certification Training is designed to provide an initial pool of
highly-trained and certified individuals. These individuals will be able to
think 
systemically; to articulate the ZERI methodology; to design ZERI projects;
and to 
further the goals of ZERI in the US and around the world. 

The program starts on June 6-10 in Santa Fe, New Mexico September 26-29, in
El Paso, Texas and finally 2002 and December 5-8, 2002.
