>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.
