Congress on Risks for Public Health & the Environment 12/05/16

A continuación os dejamos con el siguiente mensaje de la International Electro-Magnetic Fields Alliance, que hemos recibido en nuestra web histórica (la de la Coordinadora contra líneas de alta tensión e instalaciones de transformación) y que informa de un Congreso de gran interés en relación con las graves afecciones que la contaminación electromagnética tiene sobre la salud humana.
Esperemos que los señores de Red Eléctrica de España envíen a algún representante para que se informen de una vez por todas sobre este tema, actualicen sus caducas ideas sobre este asunto y tengan en cuenta en sus proyectos de líneas de alta y muy alta tensión los graves peligros que éstas suponen para la salud de las personas. Lo contrario sería una negligencia inadmisible en una empresa de su calibre y responsabilidad.


Hereby I recommend you a highly important conference on risks for public health & the environment. This conference may form a tipping point to necessary transitions in risk assessment and management in these domains. The conference is organized by ENSSER, EEA and FUNDACIÓN VIVO SANO-HDO and will be held from the 16th to 18th of May in Madrid. The International EMF Alliance will contribute to the programme with an overview of the European EMF-Health system.
Main context of the conference is that current methods and institutions for assessing environmental-health risks are not able to cope with complexities and uncertainties. Also scientific concepts and paradigms are requested that are independent from the interests and influence of the promoters of technologies. In line, it is recommended not to restrict risk assessment to closed networks of narrow elites, but to open up assessment and management of risks to wider groups of stakeholders. Also a plead is made to bring together the different types of knowledge existing in different networks.

The Goals of the Conference are as follows:
  1. Increase public and political awareness of social, economic and environmental risks of current and new technologies and discuss effective means for e.g. technology and risk assessments, product approvals, and liability schemes.
  2. Provide a forum for open public debate where experts from different fields can address the following questions and issues:
  3. What are the public health and environment risks of technologies such as modern biotechnology, nanotechnology, electromagnetic fields, and novel chemicals? a) What are the private and societal needs that are addressed by these technologies? b) Which are the current policies and procedures for shaping and assessing these technologies? c) Which are the main barriers to avoiding or minimizing risks and how can they be overcome? d) How can the precautionary principle be best applied? h) Why is there a lack of comprehensive and strong policies and institutions that could better support public interests? i) How can the marginalization of independent research, neglect of its results, and the undue influence of vested interests that inhibit change for the public good be overcome?
  4. Create an Action Plan with concrete and realistic activities to support the changes needed, including changes in scientific paradigms and practices.and in the control of technological choices.

Us deixem amb el missatge de la International Electro-Magnetic Fields Alliance, que hem rebut en la nostra web històrica (la de la Coordinadora contra línies d'alta tensió i instal·lacions de transformació) i que informa d'un Congrés de gran interès en relació amb les greus afeccions que la contaminació electromagnètica té sobre la salut humana.
Esperem que els senyors de Red Eléctrica de España enviïn a algun representant perquè s'informin d'una vegada per sempre sobre aquest tema, actualitzin les seves caduques idees sobre aquest assumpte i tinguin en compte en els seus projectes de línies d'alta i molt alta tensió els greus perills que aquestes suposen per a la salut de les persones. El contrari seria una negligència inadmissible en una empresa del seu calibre i responsabilitat.
