The LEAD Group’s Lead Safe World website continues to be developed – at www.leadsafeworld.com.au - and another Lead-Safe World Calendar has been printed and distributed this quarter.
We are continually inviting sponsors, partnerships, and companies with proven solutions to lead problems, lead-free products and lead-safe services, to join us.
This issue of LEAD Action News announces the ultimate Volcano Art Prize (VAP) winner – the People’s Choice Award for 2013, and shows some of the finalists in the art competition, who received a Picture products mug as their prize. Photographers and artists are invited to enter VAP 2014 which is now open – please spread the word globally.
Lan Nguyen has interned with us in the second half of 2013 and she has made a major contribution to this newsletter with her report on Lead Poisoning in Vietnam, plus she has reviewed some Lead News. Lead Poisoning in Vietnam is the third in our series on Lead Poisoning by Country, following: Lead Poisoning in Indonesia and Lead Poisoning in China:
Our long-term volunteer translator, Dr Hugh Xin Xi Zhu, has contributed many many hours of Chinese translation for this issue of LEAD Action News and his input is much appreciated.
Eleven years ago, the story of The LEAD Group’s aims and achievements up to 2002 was published, as the first chapter in LOCAL HEROES: Australian crusades from the environmental frontline. But until a wonderful volunteer - Gordon Lai - typed it up this year, we were unable to web-publish it. The chapter at last appears in this newsletter.
Finally, we are on the lookout for a volunteer or intern who could review the success of implementation of Strategies of the NSW Lead Management Action Plan, Nov 1994, by the NSW Government Lead Taskforce, and have thus web-published the typed-up strategies, as they have never been available in electronic format. Please phone 1800 626 086 if you would be willing to undertake this review, or can offer any other volunteer contribution.
