  • Reflecting upon the last century, we must turn the 21st century into the "Century of the Environment" with common goals defined under international coordination, exploring what we can do and what we should promote to build a sustainable future and prevent further deterioration in the global environment, the living foundation for the human race. Otherwise, there is no bright future for us human beings.
  • The key to eternal development and prosperity for the human race on this planet, lies in wisely utilizing genetic / natural resources like water, which represent assets produced by the global ecosystem, as well as in effectively using information technology, which is an asset generated by human intelligence.
  • Under the key phrases of "Education", "IT" and "Natural Resources", GEA is organizing this conference to discuss options in achieving a sustainable future, and will present its findings to the world as the prescription for building the "Century of the Environment." More specifically, the conference will explore future directions in the environmental education of the 21st century, from the perspective of educating the world population, especially young people, about cutting-edge technologies on environmental conservation and utilization. Findings of GEA conferences are expected to have broad application, including incorporation into the UNESCO Action Plan, to be compiled by 2004.
