Z ER I Certification Training being offered for theI am writing to you regarding an exciting opportunity. Gunter Pauli is offering his first ZERI Certified System Designer training in California in the San Francisco Bay Area starting this June. Attached is a flyer that highlights the program. You can get background on ZERI at www.zeri.org.
1st Time in California - in San Francisco Bay Area, CA
starting June 12, 2009
This program is what I went through in Durango, CO in 2005. It was a very intensive and moving experience for me, highlighting many possibilities for how businesses can get to Zero Waste.
I view ZERI principles and approach as one of our key market development tools for us to get beyond the traditional crushing and grinding of recyclables to using all the tools that Nature provides us with, including applying biology, chemistry, physics, and natural laws and principles to solving problems with particular discarded materials, products and packaging. I believe this is a critical training program for the highest-level staff from local government agencies and sustainable businesses pursuing Zero Waste. ZERI training includes particular emphasis on:
- Cash Flow Analysis - Gunter is a former businessman, and focuses on how to generate more cash flow by developing new business ventures from discards, not just finding existing markets for materials.
- Natural Systems - Gunter looks at the interactions among the 5 natural kingdoms and has documented how wastes that go through 2 kingdoms eliminate toxicity and harm, and how the 5 natural kingdoms found in nature operate in complete balance to use all materials as nutrients or homes to something else at ambient temperature and pressure. It's not just a "systems" approach - it's learning and applying the knowledge from natural systems.
It would be great if you or someone from your organization could participate in this training. To register, go to: https://www.regonline.com/63374_723584A
Thanks for thinking out of the box to get to Zero Waste!
