“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Education brings choices. Choices bring power.
World Information Transfer, Inc. (WIT) is a a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in General Consultative Status with the United Nations, promoting environmental health and literacy. In 1987, inspired by the Chornobyl nuclear tragedy, WIT was formed in recognition of the pressing need to provide accurate actionable information about our deteriorating global environment and its effect on human health. WIT exercises its mandate through:
Published since 1989, the World Ecology Report is a quarterly digest of critical issues in health and environment and distributed to thousands of citizens throughout the developing and developed world.
Since l992, WIT has convened what we believe to be one of the world’s premier forums for the presentation of scientific papers by international experts on the growing clinical evidence supporting the link between degrading environments and diminished human health. The conference has been convened as a parallel event to the annual meeting of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. The scientific papers presented at the conference are available on WIT’s web site.
In conjunction with the K.Kovshevych Foundation, WIT provides humanitarian aid to schools and hospitals and orphanages in areas devastated by environmental degradation. Our shipments have included computer and telephone systems, clothing and toys for children.
With the support of the K. Kovshevych Foundation, WIT offers scholarships to intellectually gifted university students in need of financial assistance to continue their studies in areas related to health and environment.
WIT provides through its web site up to date science based information on the relationship between human health and the natural environment, including the papers from the WIT’s annual conference, the archived World Ecology Reports, and our new Ecology Enquirer, an e-newsletter written by our Interns targeted to young people.
