One of the leading voices against United Nations Agenda 21 is coming to Kodiak this week. Rosa Koire is the author of Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21, and director of the Post Sustainability Institute, an organization that studies the impacts sustainable development could pose on individual freedoms.
U.N. Agenda 21 is a worldwide action plan for sustainable development that was created during the U.N. Conference on the Environment and Development that took place in Brazil in 1992. It is a non-binding action plan that can be voluntarily implemented on a local, national or global level.
Koire believes the plan is really about globalization and could potentially limit the freedoms of individuals worldwide. “It’s the worldwide blueprint – the action plan – to inventory and control all land, water, minerals, plants, animals, all means of production, all energy, education, law enforcement, information and human beings in the world.”
Koire has traveled the country speaking against Agenda 21, which she said the U.S. has signed on to.
“It was agreed to by George H.W. Bush and then President Clinton, right after he took office, created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development and that in effect made it binding in the United States. And it has been implemented in the U.S., all over the U.S.”
According to Koire, Agenda 21 is often used as an urban plan or land use plan, like smart growth and high density development in cities.
“They don’t have to be large cities, this is basically concentrating the population and moving them out of the rural and suburban areas into the highly concentrated city centers. So you can see that process beginning in Anchorage, there’s a smart growth plan in Homer, as a matter of fact.”
Koire will present her opinions on U.N. Agenda 21 to the Kodiak community on Friday at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium. She said she was invited to come speak on the island by a local commercial fisherman who read her book.
“I’m looking forward to doing that. I do travel all over the United States and the world talking about United Nations Agenda 21 sustainable development.”
Not everyone agrees with Koire’s viewpoints on Agenda 21. In fact, some people have gone so far as to call her ideas on the matter conspiracy theories and many people believe there have been little to no effects of the agenda. Folks will have an opportunity to decide for themselves when they hear Koire speak on Friday at 6 p.m.
