Ecology Enquirer


June 2013

The collective groups of 2013 Summer Interns for the World Information Transfer, Inc. are an enthusiastic and energetic cohort of individuals who, through the Ecology Enquirer, collaborate to spread information regarding the environment, human health, and development to the world. We collectively seek to increase our understanding of the world while trying to build awareness of its alarmingly deteriorating condition. Declining available of resources, not enough clean water, prevalence of infectious diseases, and global violence paint an opaque picture of a world with an uncertain future. The June 2013 edition of the Ecology Enquirer highlights several of the pressing global issues around the world, and addresses several unacknowledged ones. After one month at the United Nations, the WIT interns have attended meeting on many pressing issues, with topics ranging from fostering gender equality to ending violence across countries.

Ecology Enquirer July 2012

July 2012

Our time at the United Nations has given us invaluable experiences, instilling in us all greater aspirations for a more peaceful and sustainable world. We reflect back on our time in the hopes of inspiring greater education, progressive debate, and broader perspectives. While our interns range in age, gender, race, geographical location, and area of study, we have come to understand that we are all united by a international call to sustainable awareness and action, as we are all part of one global economy, ecology, and community.
From the U.N. Economic and Social Council meetings on topics relating to development, such as unemployment, technology, and aid, to interactive discussions with UN officers, we have learned that like WIT, the United Nations and the greater international community have embraced the age of sustainable development. Drawing on such engaging dialogues and debates, our July 2012 issue of the Ecology Enquirer aims tackle current environmental and health issues that may be underrepresented on the world stage and raise greater awareness of these issues.
