ENERGY EFFICIENCY

NEW ISSUE IS OUT NOW! Flying ladybird, mystical dawns, even more mystical sunsets, animals’ natural environments, but also almost usual scenes of human carelessness towards the  environment… and the beauty that loses the battle bit by bit. These are just a few moments skillfully captured on photographs which have been sent to our eco photo competition. Authors from all over Serbia have documented with their cameras nature in its beauty and distress, and we have put their works into a gallery of amazing photographs. A platitude that often might be heard at some winner competition announcement that for the jury “it was a tough decision to make”, in our case is genuinely more than appropriate. Members of the jury who were faced with a difficult decision were: Bojan Dzodan, photographer, Stanko Kostic, art photographer and member of the National Association …

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

NEW ISSUE OF ENERGY PORTAL MAGAZINE The Study of the United Nations from 1991 showed that almost 40 per cent of arable land had been degraded due to intensive agricultural production. There is no doubt that such a method of production causes enormous damage to the environment. That is why we have decided to devote this issue of our Magazine to Sustainable Agriculture.

In this issue, you will have the opportunity to read an interesting interview with Kyle Scott, the US Ambassador to Serbia. He believes that the best solutions often come from individuals and small groups, and the entire environmental movement in …

CLEAN ENERGY

Things are clear. If we continue with frantic exploitation and burning dirty energy sources, we will bring the survival of our planet and our descendants into question. Therefore, we decided to dedicate this issue of our Magazine to clean energy that should be our primary source of energy. Sustainable development is significant to the Austrian government, and their Ambassador to Serbia Nikolas Lutterotti said that their government is taking a number of measures to protect the environment and climate, and he also referred to the country’s investments in environmental protection. “With financial support, which is now about 108 million euros, we were able to encourage investment in the protection of the environment in the amount of 645 million euros and to provide significant incentives to the economy and employment. At the …

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

This time we have decided to put a focus on the circular economy as it represents a new, more sustainable economic approach that should replace the widely spread and worn-out linear model. We are familiar with the principle of the circulation of matter in nature, and today it has become necessary to introduce the principle of circulation in the production as well in order to minimize the waste production, and the products that were previously obtained are given a new purpose after alteration or an entirely new form and purpose after recycling. Among the first ones who mentioned this concept were British economists Turner and Pierce, who recognised the lack of a desire for sustainable development among traditional entrepreneurs. Apart from them, many other economists have tackled the challenge to …
