    • Zapomenutá generace. Nezávislé aktivity a samizdat na Plzeňsku v 80. letech 20. století.

      Vaněk, Miroslav; Valeš, Lukáš; Petrová, Jana (2011)
      The degree work deals with the last century period of the 80s and 90s in the Pilsen region. Generally, it was time of lack of freedom and intolerance when all the state power was concentrated in one political party - the Czechoslovak Communist Party. With support of police this party manipulated with citizens' dignity, rights and thinking. Through description of some civic activities the work records groups of independent thinking in the Pilsen region. These activities were source of independent atmosphere; that's why they were supervised by the state power; their protagonists were monitored and their activities were supressed. In the work the independent areas are divided into chapters: church, music, scouting, camping, ecology. Another chapter focuses on the local dissent activities. Its members were predominantly from the above mentioned groups. Last chapter deals with unofficial publishing (samizdat) in this period. The aim of the degree work is to find (or at least to outline) the starting points and reasons that finally brought members of various groups (often diametrically opposite) together on the way of independent activities, dissent and unofficial publishing (samizdat).
    • Zapomenutá generace. Nezávislé aktivity a samizdat na Plzeňsku v 80. letech 20. století.

      Vaněk, Miroslav; Valeš, Lukáš; Petrová, Jana (2017-04-27)
      Diplomová práce se zabývá obdobím 80. let 20. století na Plzeňsku. Obecně se jednalo o dobu nesvobody a netolerance, kdy veškerá moc ve státě byla soustředěna do rukou jedné politické strany - KSČ, která za pomoci bezpečnostního aparátu bez uzardění manipulovala s důstojností, právy i myšlením občanů. Práce mapuje nezávisle smýšlející skupiny obyvatel na Plzeňsku prostřednictvím popisu některých oblastí zájmových občanských aktivit, které tvořily jakési podhoubí místního nezávislého prostředí. Z toho důvodu se ocitly pod dohledem státní moci, jejich stoupenci byli sledováni a jejich činnost potlačována. Jednotlivé oblasti jsou v diplomové práci rozděleny do kapitol - církev, hudební alternativa, skauting, tramping, ekologie - ve kterých na úvodní celospolečenský vhled navazuje popis situace v regionu. Předposlední kapitola se zaměřuje na činnost místního disentu, jehož představitelé se rekrutovali převážně z výše uvedených skupin, poslední kapitola pak zachycuje samizdatovou tvorbu, která zde byla v tomto období vydávána. Snahou diplomové práce je nalézt nebo alespoň přiblížit východiska a důvody, které nakonec členy různě orientovaných skupin, často i diametrálně odlišných, přivedly na společnou cestu nezávislých aktivit, disentu a samizdatu.
    • Zen and the Art of Environmental Education in the Japanese Animated Film Tonari no Totoro

      Arran Stibbe; University of Gloucestershire (Equinox Publishing Ltd., 2008-01-25)
      The animated film Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbour Totoro) vividly depicts the interaction of people, forest spirits and nature in rural Japan. This article analyses the film both in its original Japanese and in two dubbed English versions, in relation to the film’s potential to contribute to environmental awareness. The starting point is a discussion of the limitations of current environmental education, in particular its focus on the abstract, the global, and the technical, at the expense of detailed observation of local ecosystems and the discovery of value within those systems. This is followed by analysis of Tonari no Totoro, focusing on how ecological insights drawn from Zen, Shintō and traditional Japanese culture are subtly woven into the film. The conclusion describes how the visual and linguistic features used in the film have the potential to promote a form of ecological consciousness closely attuned to the local environment.

    • Zero Hunger: Faith Partnerships for Action

      Marshall, Katherine (2018-10-05)
      Achieving Zero Hunger is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Sustainable Development Goal #2 sets out the objective to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture” by 2030, which involves multiple, interlinked challenges. Religious actors are involved in every dimension of the challenges that Zero Hunger presents. The roles that religious leaders and organizations play vary widely. They range from critical emergency support—whether in times of crisis, often as first responders—or as a true safety net for the poorest in every society. Religious actors also play vital roles through persistent advocacy, education of adherents, and prayer to ensure that those vulnerable to hunger never leave the public conscience. The examples of religious engagement with hunger issues highlighted in this report underscore the complex ways in which religious institutions are involved in every dimension of the hunger challenge. It was prepared for the World Food Programme, with support from the Eleanor Crook Foundation, in preparation for events in June 2016 where the Zero Hunger effort was discussed in the context of interreligious partnerships; Katherine Marshall is the principal author.

    • Značajniji događaji iz povijesti šumarstva u Hrvatskoj

      Matić, Slavko; Akademija šumarskih znanosti; Anić, Igor; Akademija šumarskih znanosti; anic@sumfak.hr; Meštrović, Šime; Akademija šumarskih znanosti (Croatian Forestry Society, 2012-04-30)
      The purpose of this article is to elaborate on the relationship between man and forest in Croatia in the context of historical development of the forestry science and profession. To facilitate reading, the article makes use of list with some important years and events that marked the history of the man–forest relationship and the history of forestry in Croatia in particular. Each event is accompanied by a brief description of its features and data source. The goal is to illustrate the Croatian tradition of the profession, education and science of forests and forestry. This is one of the unique features that we bring into the European Union; the feature that past generations have managed to preserve and guard, taking account of forest sustainability and resources. Forestry as a science appeared in the 18th century. Its occurrence marks the third period in the man–forest relationship. It sprang from the need for the sustainable use of forest resources and the preservation of forests aft er deforestation (disappearance of water springs, onset of torrents, soil erosion, formation of bare rock, decrease in soil fertility, loss of forest resources) resulting from intensive cutting operations in the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. This is the reason that forestry is defined as a science, profession and art of managing and preserving forest ecosystems, whose purpose is to secure permanent benefits to man, society and nature. Forestry is based on the principle of sustainability; defined in 1713, it is still the only proper example of sustainable development and sustainable management. The first written documents that regulate the relationship between man and forests in Croatia date from the 12th century. Forestry in Croatia was established in a very short period in the second half of the 18th century. It all began with the first forest inventory and mapping (1764), the foundation of forest offices (1765 in mountain region, 1773 in lowland region) and the first legally binding Regulation (1769) which introduced sustainable forest management in Croatia. The establishment of the first forest offices as the basic units of the profession can be considered as the official beginning of the development of forestry in Croatia. In three years, Croatian forestry will mark an important jubilee: two and a half century of its existence. In 1846, forestry professionals gathered within the forestry association of the Croatian Forestry Society, which began issuing its scientific-specialist and professional journal Šumarski List (Forestry Journal). The development of the profession was closely followed by the development of higher forestry education. In Croatia, forestry education was provided by vocational schools as early as 1860 and by the University of Zagreb since 1898, after theology, philosophy and law. Forestry is a complex activity that integrates biological, ecological, technical and economic components. It is for this reason that the beginnings of some scientific fields in Croatia emanate from higher forestry education programmes. Forests are the only Croatian self-renewable natural resource and national treasure. They are the source of drinking water, clean air, natural soil, flora and fauna, biodiversity, naturalness, mild climate, attractive landscape and wood material, or in one word, of life itself. As set down in the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, forests rightly enjoy the status of goods of special interest that have particular protection. Every government in power has been acutely aware of the importance of forests and forestry and has carefully guarded and fostered them. It is no wonder, therefore, that the provided overview contains a set of laws and bylaws, regulations, instructions and directives that relate to forest management. Until recently, the importance of forests was also reflected in the name of the competent ministry, which always contained the word "forest" or "forestry". Forestry was born in the most forested part of Croatia, where it began its two-and-a-half-century long development. It is precisely here that high-quality, productive, and natural forests are still growing. The profession has adhered to scientific principles and regulations to create these forests by applying regeneration and tending operations. The existence, structure, the level of naturalness and biodiversity of these forest ecosystems are the product of Croatian forestry.
    • Zoeken naar veerkracht

      Haers, Jacques; U0008416; JFA; CORA; JLA (2010-01)
      Bij het zoeken naar een verantwoord en duurzaam omgaan met de aarde, volstaan het bekijken van de wetenschappelijk-technische, sociaal-politieke en ethische dimensies van de wereldwijde milieu- en energiecrisis niet langer. Steeds vaker en luider klinkt de vraag naar de spirituele krachtbronnen die mensen en gemeenschappen daarbij ondersteunen. Hoe kunnen we onze innerlijke veerkracht bewaren en ons niet laten ontmoedigen?
    • Zycie w Ameryce: Life in America (poster)

      Cotter, Brett A. (CrossWorks, 2017-09-01)
      My project explores the history of the Polish-American community of Worcester, Massachusetts centered on the parish of Our Lady of Czestochowa and how its members responded to the forces of Americanization. Like many ethnic groups new to America, Polish-Americans and Polish immigrants in the twentieth century had to adapt in a world that demanded conformity in exchange for social mobility and departure from tradition and community. Over eight weeks, I conducted research in area archives such as the Worcester Historical Museum, the Worcester Public Library, and at Our Lady of Czestochowa’s rectory and its parish school of Saint Mary’s, as well a dozen oral history interviews with past and longtime members of the community to test the assumption that the story of Worcester’s Polish community is one of loss and decline. Contrary to expectations, I found that Polish-American efforts to preserve their group identity proved to be particularly resilient. For example, the construction of I-290 through Worcester has long been blamed by not only Poles but other ethnic communities as wholly detrimental to community life, but my research demonstrates that the Polish-American community rose above and even prospered despite this supposedly debilitating blow. Polonian identity, composed from the strands of Polish nationalism, a distinct vein of Roman Catholicism, and American patriotism, was and is one that encouraged strong communal ties. Worcester’s Polish population resisted Americanization, perpetuating Polish cultural practices through the parish and other organizations, and adapted where they could not, such as in some cases discouraging learning the Polish language in some families beginning in the early years of the Cold War. The resilience of Worcester’s Polish-American community against full Americanization until even the present day suggests that this resistance is characteristic of Polonian communities in other areas of the United States.

    • Økoteologi, konsumpsjon og kjedsomhet

      Mæland, Bård (Tapir Akademisk Forlag, 2009-06-16)
      This chapter aims to show how a state of boredom, individually as well as in society, may contribute counter-productively to solve our ecological crisis. Boredom contains two main problems: a problem of time, and a problem of place. To overcome the problems of the confined and boring place or the amount of too much empty time, strategies such as “killing time” and “movement for the sake of movement” are developed. Such strategies, however, will in our time, connected with the problems of climate change and global heating, often result in exploiting the environment, for example through excessive air travel or use of cars. It is argued that the Christian teaching on the Eucharist may display an alternative attitude to the environment, not formed by consumption virtues but by the “consummation” virtues of joy, gratefulness, fellowship, hope, and reduction. Such virtues may in turn reinforce care, concern and commitment for both our human neighbours and our common home: planet earth.

    • Η εννοιολογική οικολογία και η αποδοχή της θεωρίας της εξέλιξης από τους έλληνες εκπαιδευτικούς

      Katakos, Efstratios; Κατάκος, Ευστράτιος (National and Kapodistrian University of AthensΕθνικό και Καποδιστριακό Πανεπιστήμιο Αθηνών (ΕΚΠΑ), 2014)
      The present thesis uses the conceptual ecology as a theoretical tool and as a framework to investigate the acceptance of the evolution theory from the Greek teachers of biology in secondary education. The conceptual ecology is linked to broader notions of conceptual change and constructivism, theoretically analyzed and placed in its historical context. The history and the present condition of the acceptance of the evolution theory, in Greece and the world in general, is also examined.The main research study was a quantitative questionnaire survey conducted in teachers who teach biology in secondary education. The same survey was conducted in teachers with various specializations (biologists, geologists, teachers, pre-school teachers, undergraduate students of the department of childhood education) for comparison and investigation of specific parameters. Additionally, a qualitative study was conducted with semi-structured interviews, which aimed to confirm, explore, deepen and explain the findings of the quantitative research. The data from all surveys are presented in tables and figures, they are discussed and compared.The results of all surveys are collected and discussed in the last part of the thesis. The main conclusions of this thesis are summarized as follows: The acceptance of evolution theory is significantly influenced by religiosity (with variations by type of religiosity) and open minded thinking and mildly by the knowledge of the Evolution Theory and the nature of science. The interaction of factors and notably their impact on the acceptance of the Evolution Theory is differentiated by the external social, cultural environment and the internal structure of every factor. The Greek environment during the last decades (orthodoxy, progressive political identity in universities, lack of strong controversy around evolution), influence in a positive way the acceptance of the evolution theory by the Greek teachers but not generally by the Greek society. The appropriate, targeted teaching interventions and selected educational arguments (eg geological argument), have a significant effect in increasing the knowledge and acceptance of the Evolution Theory.

      Botas, Athanasios; Μπότας, Αθανάσιος (Aristotle University Of Thessaloniki (AUTH)Αριστοτέλειο Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλονίκης (ΑΠΘ), 2015)
      The ecological crisis and its consequences are incorporated in the wider crisis of economical, political and educational systems, by referring to the religious meditation and its relations with the ecological consciousness, sensitization, activation, deontology and moral. This perception, deriving from Orthodoxy editions, shows the contemporary theological questioning environment. However, this reveals opportune dimensions of the Religious Education that may function as issue, material and mean of research of Environmental Educational Programs.The examination of the suggestion deposited by the orthodox church for the actions of the environmental education is operating through the comparison of aims, goals, principles and practices, the research of convergences and conflicts between the Environmental Education, as an innovative learning procedure, and the Religious Education concerning the adopted methods of teaching in the modern school.
