I think the conference is great. The discussed problems and topics were of civilisation importance. I would like to mention the following: On Local Agenda 21 Processes: Coming from RIO Summit The Agenda 21 For Change has been major document. Even before and as well as after RIO 1992, we have been working on Local Agenda 21 Processes. The purpose of the local agenda 21 processes is supradisciplinary approach for sustainable development of the local community as an path for sustainable future. "Local agenda 21 processes as modern social technology can generally be understood as a partnership strategy dedicated to achieving goals which fall into three interrelated categories: economic well-being, social development and environment stability as well as regeneration. Ongoing Local Agenda 21 Processes are first steps toward implementing this commitment. They represent approach to complex problem-solving which are integrative and supradisciplinary in nature. In order to succeed they require a rising of society's awareness of the problems and a transformation of our way of thinking about them." from the book "Local Agenda 21" ISBN 3-87988-456-0 Munchen 2000. The implications of pursuing the objective of local sustainable development is an interesting supradisciplinary area not only for politicians but also for supradisciplinary teaching and research. Have a successful E-Conference, and I remain, Yours Sincerely, Dr. Timi Ecimovic, Head of SEM Institute for Climate Change
