National Issues Forums, Dayton, OH. (1992). A Public Voice…'92. America's Role in the World. Energy Options. The Boundaries of Free Speech. A Report from the National Issues Forums, Fall & Winter 1991-1992. This document reports on the tenor and outcomes of the National Issues Forums held in 1991-92 on three issues. The report draws upon three resources: short participant questionnaires, descriptions from groups' convenors, and detailed analysis of the taped proceedings of 10 groups. The report is organized in three sections, each consisting of a report from the forums and excerpts from the public response to each issue by a group of representatives from the national media and Congress who met to review excerpts from the videotapes. The first forum report, "America's Role in the World: New Risks, New Realities," starts from the premise that what dominates people's minds when they think about shaping the U.S. role is the breakup of the Soviet Union. Discussion focuses on the following: United States as a solitary superpower; need for U.S. citizens to be much more frank about themselves and more objective about the rest of the world; the United States as leader, not policer, of the world; and need to concentrate on problems at home. The report on the second issue, "Energy Options: Finding a Solution to the Power Predicament," makes the point that the public's view as reflected in the forum discussions reveals a genuine concern about the energy crisis and how it affects and is affected by the national way of life. Topics include the cost of energy conservation, risks people are willing to live with, mistrust of nuclear energy, and need for a national energy policy. Forums held on the third issue, "The Boundaries of Free Speech: How Free Is Too Free?" indicate a worry about the precedents that any restriction would set. Focuses are sex and violence on television and in the movies and what to do about it, hateful speech, and children's right not to hear.   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Citizen Participation, Citizenship Education, Citizenship Responsibility

Yacoob, May; Brantly, Eugene; Whiteford, Linda (1996). Public Participation in Urban Environmental Management: A Model for Promoting Community-Based Environmental Management in Peri-Urban Areas. In October 1992, the Water and Sanitation for Health (WASH) Project held a workshop to explore how the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) could incorporate community participation as a core element in projects to improve water supply, sanitation, and other environmental conditions of peri-urban areas in developing countries. The results of the workshop and subsequent work are described in this report, which proposes a model for facilitating community involvement in management of environmental pollution (CIMEP). A CIMEP program empowers residents of peri-urban communities to investigate environmental conditions in their neighborhood, identify problems, set priorities, and plan and implement measures to address the problems that most concern them. With the CIMEP model, two processes develop in parallel: (1) the technical process of identifying and evaluating environmental health problems and developing interventions to mitigate their effects; and (2) the participation process involving a systematic program of training and communication to provide community members, local nongovernmental organizations, and local government officials with skills, information, methods, and practices they need to work together to plan and implement an environmental management program. The report is arranged into sections as follows: CIMEP defined, the CIMEP model, technical methods for assessment and planning, community participation activities in CIMEP, and towards implementing the CIMEP model. Contains 89 references.   [More]  Descriptors: Citizen Participation, Community Cooperation, Community Development, Conservation (Environment)

Hanvey, Robert G. (1975). An Attainable Global Perspective. A more complete understanding of global perspective is provided in this essay through an examination of the modes of thought, sensitivities, intellectual skills, and explanatory capacities which contribute to the formation of a global perspective. With an emphasis on both a formal and informal educational level, the essay is divided into five sections which examine the requirements for an attainable global perspective. Section 1, Perspective Consciousness, underscores the need to recognize the concept that everyone's perspective is shaped by subtle influences and that others may have different perspectives. Section 2, State of the Planet Awareness, examines the problems and solutions for increasing the ability of individuals to intelligently interpret information about world conditions. Section 3, Cross Cultural Awareness, describes the different degrees of cross-cultural awareness and the necessity to reach a stage beyond empathy where one has the capacity to imagine oneself in a role within the context of a foreign culture. Section 4, Knowledge of Global Dynamics, analyzes the world as an interdependent system where the issue of growth may be the predominant contemporary problem. Section 5, Awareness of Human Choices, emphasizes that increased global perspective will require difficult value decisions about the solutions to our world problems.   [More]  Descriptors: Conceptual Schemes, Cross Cultural Studies, Cultural Awareness, Decision Making
