Times are changing. TUNZA magazine is going totally electronic – on http://tunza.mobi (our cross-platform mobile site) and www.ourplanet.com

NOW.

We’ll be publishing new stories on a regular basis – two or three a week.

Then, we’ll produce a compilation … for reference, which will also appear on www.unep.org/publications.

TUNZA magazine is for youth, by youth and about youth – so there’ll be lots about what YOU and other young people are doing, what you and they have achieved, and ideas about what you could pick up and run with.

We’ll also look at issues of concern to us all – from mega concerns such as climate change, resource use and food waste, to things like green jobs, green opportunities and how we can move to a green economy.

This new issue is all about opportunities. We are majoring on young innovators – the 46 Bayer Young Environmental Envoys, all of whom are working to make our world more sustainable. Some of their work focuses on research, some is about raising awareness and provoking change, while other efforts explore using waste as a resource.

We have a saying here: “ideas have legs”. Many of these innovations are replicable where you are. Some are potential business ideas that you could take up. Or perhaps the research interests you. So could you contribute or help in some way? Whatever you can do, if you want to talk to any of these young innovators and benefit from their experience and imagination, please contact us through these pages or through Facebook (www.facebook.com/TUNZAmagazine) and we’ll put you in touch.

And of course, we want to hear about what you are doing too, what you are thinking and what you are concerned about. So, please, tell us – using the same communications channels.

We made a new year’s resolution a few weeks ago to be positive. Don’t be weighed down by problems, we want to make TUNZA magazine a resource for ideas that, together, will walk us into a sustainable world.
