Environmental Information in Developing Nations: Politics and Policies

By Anna Da Soledade Vieira | Go to book overview

However, for this move to be effective, the relationship among individuals and nations should be based on justice, and nations should work in total communion, since Earth is one, and individuals are a part of the same humankind. Either all will survive or all will together wreck under the negative forces built up by people's own selfishness. Environmental information can then play an important political role in guiding humans' reflection about their common habitat toward world solidarity of nations.

Utopia or a possible dream? It will depend on the attitude of every individual in the world. Vesting the spirit of Cervantes's Don Quixote de la Mancha, one could proclaim the belief that, while an individual's dream results in a chimera, a collective dream represents the dawn of reality.

P.S. to my colleague librarians: If we accept environmental information to be a possible way to a global solution, are we, information professionals, conscious that the light seemingly at the end of the tunnel may be in our own hands?
