The conservation of the natural environment is regarded as a matter of priority by the Committee “European Environmental Union” that is made up of eleven representatives of the disciplines of law and economics from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The European Union will not be able to attain its aim of “raising the standard and the quality of life” as formulated in Article G, Letter B, No. 2 of the Maastricht Treaty unless it provides for the lasting protection of the natural fundamentals of life and economy. The Committee is therefore convinced that the targets laid down in Article G of the Maastricht Treaty must be supplemented by an ecological dimension. Especially with regard to the intergovernmental conference planned for 1996 (in accordance with Article N, Paragraph 2 of the Maastricht Treaty) the Committee members herewith submit the following proposals of environmental aims and principles for the European Union. (English and French translations of the German text are available on request.)

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
