In the view of the Dutch government, separation of the positions of the council and the executive (referred to below as ‘dualisation’) is first of all a means of establishing a clear division of responsibilities between the organs of local government at municipal level and, second, a necessary condition for making local democracy more accessible to new forms of participation. The roles and positions of council and executive will be clear and more recognisable, thereby promoting public debate, facilitating public accountability and allowing active scrutiny to take place. more....

It is 2028, a warm day in June here in Seattle, Washington. My smart alarm has awakened me a few minutes late. During the early morning the alarm was scanning the net when it noted that auto traffic had come to standstill on Interstate 405 due to a construction accident.more....

Around 2030 there will be more people and those people will get older. Old isn't the same as ill, frail or invalid. Senior citizens are all individuals who want to live independent as long as possible. Feeling safe is important for them and they want to make their own choices. 94% of the participants stated that seniors will be able to play a fully integrated role in society in 2050.more....

Duurzame mobiliteit - noodzakelijke én kansrijke opgave voor de toekomst van Nederland
De mobiliteit in Nederland nadert haar fysieke grenzen. Het dichtslibben van het wegennet, de problemen op het spoor en de slechte bereikbaarheid van(uit) de Randstad, maar ook de grote steden daarbuiten, spelen ons ernstig parten. De consequenties voor onze economische ontwikkeling en maatschappelijke ontplooiing zijn slechts bij benadering vast te stellen. Dit geldt versterkt voor de internationale positie van Nederland.

The most up-to-date WHO publication on the subject, the report may help 191 WHO Member States to ensure that genome technology is used to reduce rather than exacerbate global inequalities in health status. In the coming decades, information generated by genomics will have major benefits for the prevention, diagnosis and management of many diseases which have been difficult or impossible to control. At the same time, this new field presents a series of highly complex scientific, economic, social and ethical issues which are dealt with in the report.more....

To help the public evaluate news about human cloning, the Royal Society has published the following statement of its position, together with a checklist against which to assess the claims.more....

The accelerating pace of scientific and technological progress, which made it possible, within just a decade, to complete the first full sequencing of the human genome - and of a growing number of other living organisms - is heralding a new era in molecular biology and genetics, in particular for human medicine. However, it is going to take a very large-scale and long-term research effort if the promises of this 'post-genomic age' are to be realised. more....

Club of Amsterdam: the future of Global Economy
The Club of Amsterdam organised a conference about globalisation on January 29th. The main topic was sustainability in the 21st century. This report will give you a brief summary of the topics and the interactive discussion between the panel and the participants of The Club of Amsterdam.

Two presentations were given to provide the discussion with high level knowledge. Annemarie Jorritsma gave a brief overview of globalisation in the past with the Dutch VOC and the ongoing globalisation in the future.

Paul Hohnen of the Global Reporting Initiative showed that regulation of government on globalisation is important, but that it isn't the only mechanism needed. He stated that companies should use a different kind of reporting, that not only focus on financial, but also on ethical aspects.

Medical skill has always been scarce. Originally, it was available only to those who could arrange to be with a practitioner. But technology has, over the past 170 years, provided successively better ways of providing medical service despite separation in time and space. The Internet, personal computers, wireless devices, high-resolution graphic displays, and similar technologies are just the current step in a process of distributed medicine that started with the telegraph.more....

As telecommunication technology has advanced and costs have declined over the past decade, there has been a steady growth in telemedicine. Much of this growth, however, has been in the form of feasibility studies and pilot trials. As a result there is little convincing evidence of the cost effectiveness of many applications, apart from teleradiology (box). This paper reviews recent evidence and describes clinical applications where there is early evidence that telemedicine is not only of clinical benefit but cost effective too.more....

Over the past few years, the world's population has continued on its remarkable transition path from a state of high birth and death rates to one characterized by low birth and death rates. At the heart of that transition has been the growth in the number and proportion of older persons. Such a rapid, large and ubiquitous growth has never been seen in the history of civilization. more....

We have allowed our local environment to become child unfriendly and to be shaped only by the desire to reward car drivers. They can now drive faster and metal railings have been erected on some streets to make sure that the elderly and the ill have to walk even further so that drivers can be given even greater opportunity to drive faster and ignore vulnerable road users. Why should the journeys on foot of the elderly, the ill and young children be made more difficult and circuitous to enhance the ease and joy of the motorist? more....
