) Environmental Trainings( (Environmental Organizations)
Having access to the objectives of sustainable development certainly requires directing overall policies of societies’ organizations and institutions, so if the international and regional policies do not involve in this mechanism, accessing these objectives will rarely occur. Policies of theses organizations, whether formal or informal, include the following matters: allocating specialized budgets, direct participation in environment conservation, strategic planning focusing on environment considerations, monitoring administration of policies inside and outside of the country by international organizations, resource protection, training, adjusting trade, changing the pattern of exploiting earth’s resources, managing water resources, public health and housing, trash management-specially dangerous trashes -, population controlling, developing sustainable agriculture, and conserving the mountains.
Any civil aspect and appearance of development morality is not possible without public and specialized trainings. Training is the central element and intermediate chain of organizations and masses. Training can take place individually, in groups or masses (the same, p.410).
The process of training includes arranging appropriate instructions and considering them in educational programs, creating informational networks in those institutions which are involved in opportune transmission of information and knowledge regarding sustainable development to policy makers and masses.
In areas like Iran with widespread and increasing ecologic damages from one hand and the lower levels of training and public and specialized skills from the other hand, the element of training and reinforcing it seems to be necessary. Such trainings should correspond with the level of environmental awareness and dependency of individuals. And finally, the ultimate element in development is public participation which is joined with ”modern development ” and ”democratic development”. Catching any sort of development without the presence of well-informed and interested groups and individuals, and justifying objectives for the existing groups of a certain social-biological environment is impossible. If participation has an elitist and group approach, achieving objectives of development is certainly impractical; so the only practical approach is mass, public, and widespread participation in which individuals have understood the importance of the case and get enough motivation for conserving available resources. This kind of participation includes establishing NGOs- what is seen in the Western Europe and the North America-, immediate participation in sustainable development, contributing national and international organizations involved in this matter, and finally training through media or group discussions. Anyway, the final approach of gaining this objective is the direct engagement of the individuals of an environment in the ecologic development.
The concept of sustainable development is the intellectual, democratic, reasonable, and human connection among three elements of human, resources (environment), and technology. If human and his green and environmental insights are the dominant agents of this process, we can expect a promising future for catching sustainable development owning to mass participations, responsible organizations, and public and specialized trainings. We are the civilians of a biological-social environment with agriculture livelihood, so the concept of sustainable development is joined with the concept of “sustainable agriculture”. Any developmental or constructive project in countries like Iran, if does not focus on shares of future generations, safety and stability of environment, and the human aspect of this case, it will be an anti-development project which is found to be destructive and polluting.
Achieving the important and remarkable objectives of sustainable development requires involving the well-informed and interested groups in this process, enjoying all kinds of individual and group training, and asking help from international observer organizations such as: UN, FAO, and WHO.
