International Conference on "Danube River Bonds: Bio-Environment - Bio-Culture"

Bratislava City Hall, June 3-6, 1997

Crucial decisions on "Environment and Development" for the countries traversed by the Danube, will be taken by 80 leading experts, from 20 nations, during the international conference on "Danube River Bonds: Bio-Environment - Bio-Culture" that will be held in Bratislava, June 3-6, 1997. The conference is organised jointly by the Biopolitics International Organisation and City University Bratislava.

This conference is the first to address the need for the development of new institutions for co-operation among the Danube countries. The Danube, one of the largest European rivers, traverses 10 nations (Germany, Austria, Slovak Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Yugoslavia, Romania and Moldova) and influences the lives and livelihood of millions of people. Tracing the economic and social development patterns, but also the historical and cultural links among the Danube countries, can offer insight for the development of future co-operation models. In addition, in view of the pending expansion of the European Union, the time is ripe to re-examine prospects for co-operation and focus on the growth of commercial and cultural relations, using the Danube as a common point of reference. As the river itself has suffered serious deterioration due to environmental pollution, the development of long-term multilateral initiatives, for its restoration and protection, can reform diplomacy and bring all these nations together, in a common cause.

The conference will focus on the following issues:

  • Pending expansion of the European Union - new profiles in leadership and diplomacy
  • Economic transitions: mixing markets, laws and cultures
  • Bio-diplomacy and bio-ethics: lessons from history
  • Trade, transportation, tourism and communication: new trends for international co-operation
  • Evolution of a river: bio-diversity, history and culture
  • Bio-education and academic policy
  • Waterways and waterworks: international co-operation and conflict resolution
  • Current concepts in pollution prevention and resource conservation
  • Forest ecosystems and soil preservation
  • Legislative norms in water management
  • Paths to building a civic society: democracy and civilisation

The conference will be attended by representatives from governments, academic institutions, business corporations, non-governmental organisations and the diplomatic corps. Participants include the Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova, Mr. G. Ozhog, the Minister of Environment of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Mr. J. Aleksyc, the Minister of Environment of the Slovak Republic, Mr. J. Zlocha, the Ambassador of the European Union to the Slovak Republic, Dr. George Zavvos, additional members of the Slovak delegation (the General Secretaries of the Ministry of Transport, Post and Telecommunications Mr. Szabo, Environment, Mr. J.
