2006 ZERI Certification Training Course, New York
November 10 - 13, 2006, February 23 - 26, 2007 and May 4 - 7, 2007

ZERI stands for Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives (see www.zeri.org). Zero Emissions means zero waste. . . zero pollution. Research is about learning: finding appropriate technologies to meet people's needs in a smarter way - in a way that reinforces natural systems rather than depleting natural resources. And initiatives are action: real projects and real developments within communities and within businesses that provide jobs and create wealth by imitating natural systems and using waste as a resource.

The ZERI Training Program is designed to provide a deep understanding of systems thinking, knowledge of the Five Kingdoms of Nature, information about innovative technologies for implementing ZERI systems, introduction to the ZERI methodology, and development of skills for implementing projects.

Building on the sciences of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, ZERI recognizes that whatever is waste for a species of one kingdom of Nature is a nutrient for a living organism in another kingdom.  ZERI was launched in 1994 at the United Nations University in Japan as a network of scientists committed to finding innovative and practical solutions based on sustainable natural systems. It has evolved into a network of hundreds of ZERI-trained practitioners who are undertaking more than 60 projects on five continents.

The ZERI Training Program is spread out over a six month period that includes a total of 12 days divided into three modules with a team of instructors including ZERI founder, Gunter Pauli.  Included in the course will be case studies of ZERI projects and at least one site visit to evaluate various projects within the context of the ZERI methodology. The goal is to expand the pool of inspired, energetic ZERI-trained and certified individuals who can apply the ZERI principles and methodology in their communities and in their work.

The dates have been chosen in order to accommodate teachers' schedules.

Location: Glynwood Center, Cold Springs, NY.
