Recommendations for Poznan Toward Copenhagen 2009

Ethical Markets Reforming Global Finance

BIOPOLITICS INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION

The present economic and environmental crisis may serve as an opportunity and challenge to formulate a new strategy in building a Green Society of hope. The Biopolitics International Organisation (B.I.O.) a pioneer in environmental issues, since its inception in 1985, with representatives in 138 countries, requests that decisive progress be achieved in Poznan leading to the implementation of dynamic Copenhagen 2009 resolutions, by:

• Believing that a Green Renaissance can allow the sailing into a bright future.

• Underscoring the need to reverse unemployment and environmental deterioration by implementing a green salaries strategy. The active contribution of a global Youth Movement may contribute greatly to the mitigation of climate change.

• Recognising the negative impacts of global warming on the realisation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

• Emphasizing the importance of bio-assessment of technology to ensure the protection of the bio-environment.

• Stressing the need to formulate a common policy for the preservation of our forests, including projects on the development of bacterial synthesis of cellulose and all natural resources especially water.

• Affirming the necessity to explore nature’s biological mechanisms in creating clean energy from the oceans, algae and photosynthesis.

• Realizing the critical role of oceans in global warming and in the supply of food resources.

• Emphasizing the use of new technologies for the realization of a World Referendum, allowing every citizen of the world to commit themselves in the building of this new society.

• Highlighting the necessity of Global Education as a vital step for saving the environment. In this spirit, the International University for the Bio-Environment (I.U.B.E., founded by B.I.O. in 1991) promotes environmental thinking and places universal protection of the environment at the core of every curriculum and debate.

• Acknowledging the crucial role of the Media as a global platform for building a green society.

• Encouraging the value of bio-diversity by creating local Genetic Banks.

• Confirming the need for an Electronic Bank of Ideas to inform on the beauty of cultural diversity, new technologies for climate change protection and networking among concerned citizens.

• Recognizing that migration problems, triggered by global warming will escalate, if action is not taken immediately.

• Promoting the implementation of Environmental Olympics, as a means to enrich the Olympic Games by including every occupation.
• Recognizing that urban agglomerations are major contributors to global warming and must find ways to transform themselves into zero-emissions cities.

• Pressing the world’s powerful military establishments to be gradually transformed into forces of peace that restore the bio-system, mitigate climate change, protect the global environment and help bring life back to its original environment.

• Requesting the commitment of heads of states, leaders and every member of society to the preservation of bios—life–on the planet.

• Urging all global leaders to adopt bio-diplomacy and consider the ticking clock of destruction while there is still time.
