NORWEGIAN  EXAMPLES ON AGENDA 21 FOLLOW-UP REPORTED

Just as the delegations start arriving in New York for the Earth
Summit+5 - the major international Agenda 21 follow-up and evaluation
meeting next week, some of the 'major groups' (to use Agenda 21 
terminology) in Norway timely present their success stories and 
practical examples in a report, available on paper and on Internet
(http://www.grida.no/prog/norway/ungass/).

Partnership for Change is the name of the report. It is jointly
elaborated by most of the 'major groups' in Norway, including the
municipalities, labour and business, NGOs, the research community, the
educational sector and the Sami people, the indigenous people of
Norway. The work has been co-ordinated by the Ministry of Environment.

The report provides around 50 practical examples of Agenda 21
follow-up in Norway within the various sectors. These range from the
training programme "The Natural Way" for employees in companies which
regard eco-efficiency as a competetive asset, to "Inky Arms and his
Eco-detectives" a nation-wide club for children with 10,000 members.

The report is available in both English and Norwegian

The on-line version of the report is found at

The paper report can be ordered from
