What is the best way to effectively identify and notify the public concerned about proposed activities affecting the environment? Are countries providing early public participation when all options, including the zero option (doing nothing), are genuinely open? Is it right if at public hearings the audience consists of a large group of men in suits with no elderly persons or women? How can Aarhus principles help peacebuilding in Myanmar and China? What are the obstacles to effective public participation in national climate change-related decision-making on the way to the Paris agreement?. These were some of the questions discussed at a meeting of the Task Force on Public Participation in Decision-making under the Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (Aarhus Convention), held in Geneva on 23 and 24 February 2015 under the leadership of Italy.

The Alliance for Rural Democracy welcomes the judgement handed down by the Constitutional Court yesterday declaring the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act 15 of 2014 invalid.. The case, brought by civil society and community-based organisations including affiliates of the ARD, concerned Parliaments obligation to facilitate public participation in its legislative process. In finding that the National Council of Provinces had failed to allow enough time for proper consultation on this Amendment Act, the Court said:. Given the gravitas of the legislation and the thoroughgoing public participation process that it warranted, the truncated timeline was inherently unreasonable. Objectively, on the terms stipulated by the timeline, it was simply impossible for the NCOP - and by extension the Provincial Legislatures - to afford the public a meaningful opportunity to participate.. The Court ordered that all claims lodged after 1 July 2014 should be put on hold until earlier claims are settled. ...

The second pillar of the Aarhus Convention is based on the concept of participation and draws from Principle 10 of the Rio Declaration:
Once a project is put on the Union list, it is dubbed crucial for the EUs energy policy. Giving projects such priority status is hoped to stop any discussions about their necessity during the permit granting process before they even start. As part of the efforts to speed up permitting procedures, the Infrastructure Regulation also provides particular rules for public participation.. First, the member states (or rather, their competent authorities) draw up a manual of procedures. This must contain information about the applicable law, the necessary decisions and opinions, the contact details of the competent authorities etc. In the interest of increased transparency, project promoters must hand in a concept for public participation at the beginning of the permit granting process. Before the final and complete application file is handed in, a public consultation must take place. This aims e.g. to identify the most suitable location or trajectory for the infrastructure to be built. As part of this ...

COLUMBIA - Ron Sena of Charleston saw his first electronic cigarette while on a cruise with his wife.. A smoker for 40 years, Sena was aware of the regulations surrounding smoking in restaurants, so he was surprised when a man pulled out what looked to be a cigarette in the dining room.. Hey, guy, you cant smoke in here, he remembers saying. He was intrigued by the answer he got: Its water vapor, not smoke.. Thats when Senas interest in e-cigarettes was sparked, and he isnt alone.. E-cigarettes broke onto the American market in 2007, and the market has grown every year since. Sales are expected to hit $1 billion in 2013, according to Euromonitor.. Sena said that since quitting traditional smoking and picking up the electronic version, his lung function and senses of taste and smell have improved dramatically.. He felt so strongly about the health benefits of the products that he started his own business making refill cartridges for the devices.. Many people feel the way Sena does about ...

California has a unique variant of anti-SLAPP legislation. In 1992 California enacted Code of Civil Procedure § 425.16, a statute intended to frustrate SLAPPs by providing a quick and inexpensive defense.[6] It provides for a special motion that a defendant can file at the outset of a lawsuit to strike a complaint when it arises from conduct that falls within the rights of petition or free speech. The statute expressly applies to any writing or speech made in connection with an issue under consideration or review by a legislative, executive, or judicial proceeding, or any other official proceeding authorized by law, but there is no requirement that the writing or speech be promulgated directly to the official body. It also applies to speech in a public forum about an issue of public interest and to any other petition or speech conduct about an issue of public interest. To win on an anti-SLAPP (special motion to strike) motion, the defendant in the alleged SLAPP action must first show that the ...

Background: Maternal and neonatal mortality rate are still high in many developing countries. Lack of access to health facilities is one of the biggest challenges in the poorest households and in rural areas which contributes to high maternal and neonatal mortality. One strategy to improve health services utilization amongst the poorest and rural areas is by incorporating community participation into maternal and neonatal health programmes. Indonesia is one of the countries which make intensive efforts to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality using community participation strategy. Objectives: To identify the effectiveness of community participation strategies to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and discuss the relevance of global experiences within the Indonesian context. Method: A systematic review. The relevant studies were searched electronically through two databases; Pub-Med and ISI Web of Knowledge. Pre-defined selection criteria applied to the filtered studies.

Findings show that using community participation can lead to designing new service models that fit within existing budgets and address local aspirations and healthcare priorities.. Participant communities were similar on dimensions of rurality, health status, aspirations and health priorities. They proposed a consistent set of requirements for remote Scottish primary healthcare. These were: resident practitioner(s), expert emergency triage, monitoring and anticipatory care of vulnerable people, community volunteering for health improvement, and leadership of community (health) volunteering.. Despite community similarities, community participation led to different service designs for three communities and one community did not participate at the final service design stage. These diverse outcomes suggest the influence of local contextual factors. This implies that different communities do want different things so suggesting the same standard model for all, apparently alike, rural communities is ...

There is abundant material in the full report and its summaries that calls for public input into the process of determining exactly what types of germline gene editing should be permitted. For example, from the one-page report summary: Ongoing reassessment and public participation should precede any clinical trials of heritable germline editing. This is a very clear call for public feedback. Nevertheless, at least some responses seem to argue that this sentiment was left out of the report. I believe this to be purposefully misleading. The report committee was co-chaired by a noted biomedical ethicist and regulatory expert. Moreover, the committee has several additional bioethicists in its roster, who all are well acquainted with the need for communication between the public, scientists and policymakers in order for sensible policies to be created. Furthermore - the report contains an entire chapter entitled Public engagement. ! ...

When the National Council on Disability (NCD) invited public participation in the Native American Forum (Native Forum) held April 15, 2004 at the Santa Ana Pueblo Hyatt Regency Tamaya Hotel and Resort near Bernalillo, New Mexico, the purpose was to provide a dialogue opportunity for learning about issues and concerns linked to federal policy. In his delivery of the charge to forum discussion groups, NCDs Cultural Diversity Advisory Committee Liaison, Milton Aponte indicated that the Native Forum was less about one size fits all solutions and more about trying to obtain authentic perspectives from [the participants]. NCD wanted to learn directly from people with disabilities, their families, other advocates, tribal and state leaders, service providers and other disability professionals..

Community development is a big part of life at Eclipse. It is strongly recommended that you identify somebody on your team to be responsible for community development activities. To cultivate a vibrant community of users, adopters, and committers, a project has to have somebody who is responsible for community development. Somebody has to own it. Everybody on the project team has to dedicate some significant amount of their time to community development, but one person on the team has to be responsible for it. For some projects, this may be a full time job; for others, it may be a huge part of one. In fact, may open source projects have more than one full time person working on community development. In some circles, this role might be called the projects evangelist, or maybe its the project lead that manages community development. Whatever the title, the role should be that of making everybody else successful in community development activities. Please see Community Development for Eclipse ...

Objective: Visualisation methods, primarily color-coded representation of sequence data, have been a predominant means of representation of DNA data. Algorithmic conversion of DNA sequence data to sound - sonification - represents an alternative means of representation that uses a different range of human sensory perception. We propose that sonification has value for public engagement with DNA sequence information because it has potential to be entertaining as well as informative. We conduct preliminary work to explore the potential of DNA sequence sonification in public engagement with bioinformatics. We apply a simple sonification technique for DNA, in which each DNA base is represented by a specific note. Additionally, a beat may be added to indicate codon boundaries or for musical effect. We report a brief analysis from public engagement events we conducted that featured this method of sonification. Results: We report on use of DNA sequence sonification at two public events. Sonification has ...

BACKGROUND: Community engagement has been recognised as an important aspect of the ethical conduct of biomedical research, especially when research is focused on ethnically or culturally distinct populations. While this is a generally accepted tenet of biomedical research, it is unclear what components are necessary for effective community engagement, particularly in the context of genomic research in Africa. METHODS: We conducted a review of the published literature to identify the community engagement strategies that can support the successful implementation of genomic studies in Africa. Our search strategy involved using online databases, Pubmed (National Library of Medicine), Medline and Google scholar. Search terms included a combination of the following: community engagement, community advisory boards, community consultation, community participation, effectiveness, genetic and genomic research, Africa, developing countries. RESULTS: A total of 44 articles and 1 thesis were retrieved of which 38

The high school students who took part in this research project were those that are typically underrepresented on the campuses of colleges and universities. Underrepresented students may, for one reason or another, be left out of the college-going culture and discussion in their [End Page 57] high schools. They often lack opportunities to engage in the most high-impact educational practices and may be unable to envision themselves in these roles. In preliminary interviews with the scholar-researchers, many indicated that their image of a researcher was a white man in a white lab coat, someone who looked nothing like them or their families, far removed from their worlds. They did not see themselves as potential researchers of any kind, and yet these same students overwhelmingly said yes when asked if they would like to participate in a research project, to learn to become researchers, and to devote substantial time and energy to better understanding the problems of college access in their ...

Click (cc) for english subtitles Synopsis Citizen science has long contributed to the health of local communities by making people aware of their environment in the form of oral histories and traditional wisdom. Recently, the effort to democratize science created opportunities for innovation and a model for public participation in science. These movements rippled into many things such as a kind of revival of traditional knowledge, influential policy forces, changes in how we produce and share knowledge into an iterative and collective process. Yogyakarta, Indonesia, has been one of the most active hubs in this movement. HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakakarta is a two-weeks making-oriented gathering of researchers, artists, scientists, academicians, hackers and whatevers in Yogyakarta. It was hosted by LIFEPATCH - citizen initiative in art, science and technology and co-organized together with HACKTERIA , Open Source Biological Art in collaboration with various regional partners.

3.1 In the area of clinical research, clinical evaluation of drugs, clinical testing of medical devices and other scientific research programs, where the researcher can intervene in patient integrity, the EC VFN assesses and supervises their course in terms of safety and the preservation of the rights of clinical trial subjects. To this end, it shall, in particular, assess the competence of the examiners, the suitability of the equipment used, the procedures chosen and the groups of subjects of assessment. When conducting research, it is possible to interfere with patient integrity beyond cases of personal contact between physician / researcher and patient. An example could be the processing of personal data from a medical record kept by a VFN patient, the collection of data in registers that are not defined by Act No. 372/2011 Coll., On health services and the conditions for their provision. 3.2 The ethics committee meetings are oral without public participation, the representative of the ...

http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=s... .. The flexibilization of PCC opening hours is a need felt in the territories, particularly to meet the needs of people who work standard office hours. However, associated with the flexibilization of working hours and cost reductions, this measure is likely to reduce both access and service quality, considering the complexity of healthcare. This set of flexibilization measures designed to give municipalities more autonomy in creating health teams in accordance with specific local needs may conflict with the aim of providing comprehensive quality care.. The findings also show the importance of encouraging public participation, monitoring patient satisfaction, and the co-production of healthcare. However, little mention is made as to how this will be done in practice. The construction of the SUS as a universal public system presupposes that health is a fundamental value for life and requires the mutual recognition that we belong to the same humanity, ...
