|"To carry out in a territorial circumscription-the
province of Soria in Spain-a model of Sustained and Ecoevolutionary
Development which could be extrapolated to other places of
the world thanks to the demonstration effect."

|Deyna seeks solutions for the two most
important problems of our planet:
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BIOSPHERE AND POVERTY.
In order to achieve this, the foundation considers that it to
be of fundamental importance that the "Permanent world
forum on Sustainable Development" and the 'Global Monitoring
Station and the Training Centre of the Local Agenda 21",
are located in Spain.
Comments on the DEYNA Project by the President of the Government
Mr. José María Aznar, by the "father"
of the Rio Summit, 92, Dr. Maurice Strong, and by the President
of the Council of Castilla y León, the region where
the project has been initiated.
"The Project presented by the Foundation Desarrollo
y Naturaleza (DEYNA) at the World Expo in Hannover has the
support of the Government, as well as my personal backing.
Spain aspires to lead the monitoring of the "Agendas
21" on sustainable development after Hannover."
José Mª Aznar
"I'am pleased to
confirm my full support and endorsement of Soria's nomination
to be recognised at the first province to have completed
its "Local Agenda 21" since the Earth Summit,
based on the Global Agenda 21, approved in Río. This
is a very important accomplishment, wich will make a major
contribution to achievement of the transition to a more
sustainable pathway to the future of the Earth and its people,
which was called for at the EarthSummit."
General Secretary of the Earth Council
"I want to express
the support of the Regional Government of Castilla y León
to the development and implementation of the "Agenda
21" along the lines set out by the Foundation DEYNA
over the last few years and based upon the "Global
Agenda 21" approved in Río de Janeiro in 1992."
President of the Regional Government of Castilla y León
The Foundation Development and Nature(DEYNA) is a non-governmental
organisation (NGO) which, since its creation in 1992, has promoted
and postulated a model of Sustained and
Ecoevolutionary development, not only economical, but also
humanistic and generation spanning. By acting
locally and thinking globally, DEYNA hopes the planet can
maintain and improve its habitability and, at the same time, that
the model-project can provide a solution for development in the
region where it is implemented; also providing demonstrable effects
for other territories and places on the planet.
DEYNA's mission is to promote and develop the
science, technology, culture and economy of Soria; to contribute
to the conservation of nature and of the environment; to forward
the harmonious Sustained and Ecoevolutionary
socio-economic development; and to preserve and stimulate the scientific
and cultural heritage of Soria, in order to make it a model territory
of Sustainable Development.
This mission requires:
The implementation of
the "Local Agendas 21" in the municipalities of the province
of Soria, as the Agendas 21 are the starting point and guiding
line of the project.
2. Three-pronged strategy
2.1 A private UNIVERSITY,
preferably multidisciplinary and of postgraduate level, focussed
on problems of health, on the Environment and on Sustained, Ecoevolutionary
and Humanistic (ethical) Development. It will be a UNIVERSITY for
the 21 Century and will be in touch with other national and international
2.2 An OPEN MUSEUM
- the province of Soria - active, complex and dynamic, generically
called "MUSEUM OF THE ENVIRONMENT,
MAN AND NATURE", interrelated with the University and
comprising open and closed spaces, old and new concepts, backdrops
of yesterday and today, natural areas and culture framed in human
works, old and new methodologies, cosy, attractive, suggestive,
stimulating, integrating, instructive and interactive.
2.3 A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH
PROJECTS, at the service of ECODEVELOPMENT and new technologies,
which are friendly and compatible with nature: profitability, knowledge
3. Final Objective
The projection of this three-pronged approach
to other regions and countries will be carried out through:
3.1 A Permanent International
Forum on Sustainable Development, and
3.2 A Monitoring Station
and Education Centre for Knowledge and Application of the "Local
Agenda 21" ("Program 21 - Summit of Rio '1992)

DEYNA will carry
out any other new projects that aim at developing the endogenous
resources and recovering the natural environment within this three-pronged
strategic approach. Any of these projects must be coherent with
the objective of stimulating and augmenting the standard of living
of the inhabitants of Soria and of any region where the model is
All in all, the DEYNA
PROJECT is meant to be a guide of Development towards the
sustainable model, which undoubtedly will become a decisive step
in order to face the biggest of all human problems, which is poverty
and stop the destruction of the biosphere.
