Ditch the "Sustainababble": The WORLDwrite Summit for Serious Development

 

Date: 23/04/2002

 

Previous Location: WORLDwrite homepage

 

Headline: Ditch the "Sustainababble" and the WSSD

 

Story: As summiteers pontificate in Johannesburg, the UK based education charity and NGO WORLDwrite, has released a critical memorandum arguing in no uncertain terms that this summit is worse than useless.

 

Director Ceri Dingle said today, "this summit is not about serious development and promises a bleak future for the developing world. The whole sustainability mantra should be ditched."

 

WORLDwrite has an inspiring track record of creating links between young people across the globe. It is volunteer led and run, passionately people first and its volunteers are angry that the millions spent on this summit will do nothing to better the lives of people in the developing world. A full copy of the critical memorandum is attached.
