Welcome to the 31st Annual Ecological Farming Conference – Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, e-Lectrical! This conference has been connecting all of the elements of farming and natural foods into a cohesive whole for 31 years. This year we celebrate the fact that a holistic, ecological view of food and farming is driving a national conversation about personal, public and environmental health.

Sick of reading #gibberish? Wondering where all the @ signs came from? Wondering about the “e-Lectrical” part of the theme?

International Symposium on Ecology and Environmental Problems

Mankind, especially within the last hundred years, has been in formidable conflict with his environment. This conflict has been one of the most influential factors on planet Earth, mainly because the human species has always given the first priority to his own interests without giving much regard to the needs of other living things on Earth, where he has to share his environment. Such an approach of the human species created unrepairable and multidimensional problems on our environment. These problems, which have been significantly increasing since the beginning of the last century, are the major concern for all of us, both at the local and global scales.

Turkey LogoSuppose we consider two hundred thousand years of human existence on planet Earth as 24 hours; then, the last 25 seconds of this time interval could correspond approximately to the last 50 years. All the scientific evidences indicate that the destruction caused by human species within the last 25 seconds (i.e., 50 years) is more than 98 % of the destruction caused within the past 23 hours and 59 seconds (i.e., 199.950 years). That is why this colloquium is planned to be held in Antalya between November 17 and November 20, 2011, bringing together the Humboldt Scholarship holders and other scientists concerned with ecology and environment to discuss the related problems and possible solutions.

Being a Humboldt scholarship holder is a privilege in many ways. During this Humboldt Colloquium which is titled “VI. International Symposium on Ecology and Environmental Problems”, studies of scientists related with problems on ecology and environment will be discussed and evaluated. Humboldt scholarship holders as well as other prominent researchers who are concerned with ecology and environment are cordially invited to the symposium.
