On a global
scale the ecological situation has reached such a state that only cooperative efforts of
international community can radically change the state of affairs for the better.
The environmental protection implies
the development and implementation of measures that would contribute to effective
utilization of the environment, including protection against excess technological loads
and negative after-effects of man's interference, also active regulation of natural
processes, the reproduction and improvement of the natural potential of landscapes.
The present level of ecological
safety is unable to prevent the occurrence of crises in the field of environmental
protection. Today these questions must be examined from different angles that would take
into account the interstate character of the process under development, the necessity for
complex nature-protection measures, interplay of negative factors, etc. That challenge can
be met only by mobilizing all the resources of modern scientific achievements and using
these as a basis of effective methods and means for protection of the Earth's environment.
Trustee Funds of the Tsyolkovsky
Moscow State Aviation Technological University (MSATU) operating in Russia, USA, France,
UK, Australia, Czech, Cyprus, Byelorus, Israel and other countries have been forming and
releasing this Program for uniting of all scientific and technical societies of various
countries for the purpose of counteracting the ecological crises on Earth.
In addition to the basic directions
(Sections 4 – 10) the Program includes such other directions without which, as the
Program compilers believe, the presented task can not be achieved. For example, these are
directions connected with insurance of nature protection activity (Section ¹20) and
investment and innovation activities (Section ¹19). The rapid growth of energy
consumption also demands that Section ¹ 11 be singled out as an independent one since it
deals with the extraction, manufacturing and transportation of fuel and energy which not
infrequently is accompanied by serious and undesirable changes in the environment.
No nature-protection activities can
be brought into effect without provision of a modern information system that would
reflect, timely and fully enough, the existing environmental conditions. This is what
Section ¹ 1 is intended for.
The important direction of the
Funds’ activity is the increase of a level of ecological knowledge and ecological
culture of the population (¹ 16). This work should be carried out at colleges and
universities, using the facilities of the youth creativity centers, museums etc., and will
require the development of copious updated methodical materials and professionally trained
The existing in the mean time
parameters - maximum allowable concentration, percentage of harmful substances etc., are
just the individual criteria of an estimation of a condition of an environment and do not
establish complex interrelations of its processes. In this connection it is necessary to
create modern phenomenological models of an ecological condition of environment and on
this base to develop mathematical models of processes that will allow to establish
scientifically proved interrelations and predict possible consequences (¹ 2).
All items of the Program are focused
on the problem of man's safety that will require a complex solution of sometimes
conflicting problems (¹ 15).
Near Space Ecology (¹ 3) and
Megalopolis Ecology (¹ 12) are the objects for both scientific researches and
technological substantiation that would allow the man's safety level be maintained.
All works in the framework of the
Program must be done within the legally defined margins because without legal support a
lot of works may not be realized at all. This is why the Legal Provision for Environment
Safety (¹ 17) and development of the structures (organizations) for the Program
realization will be given adequate attention.
These are the directions of the
Funds’ planned nature protection activities supported with specific technological
decisions (projects) the number of which is constantly growing. The Program is based on
expansive geographical grounds: it includes dozens of countries. Numerous firms,
companies, organizations and universities have been participating in its development and
they are ready to participate in its implementation thereafter.
