Education, Legislation, Declaration

  • Nicholas Polunin


The above seventeen sections corresponding to sessions of the Conference, headed by keynote papers and terminated by detailed discussions with or without contributed addenda, have covered, so far as proved practicable in the time and space allowed, most of what seemed to the Conference’s International Steering Committee to be the really pertinent topics concerning Environmental Future. But there are others—particularly human population, environmental education, and suitable legislation together with its enforcement. The first of these, including the mounting effects of demographic pressures, seemed to be always with us, being referred to in almost all of the papers and coming out in the discussions, etc., on numerous occasions—particularly in sessions 1, 2 (Addenda), 3, 5, 12, 13, and 16 (including Addenda). Indeed it could be said with basic truth that ‘human population is what it is all about’.
