[Sustainable development aims to secure the living conditions of the next generations. Currently it fails to achieve its goal as the human destruction of ecosystem is accelerated. Institutions of the developed countries can not control the environmental crisis. The increased environmental degradation is caused by overconsumption, which is mainly driven by the widespread consumption-culture. Failure of institutional solutions drew the attention to the empowerment of communities. Aarhus Convention has legally empowered the local communities and various scientific fields examines community participation. Community Based Mental Health Services has gathered a significant knowledge about the psychosocial processes of community participation and about the participatory-culture. According to our assumption this knowledge can be used in the field of sustainable development. Besides the empowerment of the independent, local communities, concordance, affective experiencing diversity of the members, involvement of experiential experts are all important in the operation of self-organizing, responsible, local communities. We believe that the empowerment and support of eco-conscious communities is an important, new intervention in the field of sustainable development. ]

[Philosophical café as therapeutic community]

NEMES László

[In this paper we examine the very possibility of integrating philosophical discussion groups into the practice of community psychiatry as a kind of therapeutic community. We summarize the history of the café-philo movement, the conception, methods and goals of the philosophical café. I present a detailed report on the experiences about the philosophical cafés going on at the Awakenings Foundation on a weekly basis for two years. I suggest group philosophy discussion as a useful additional form of activities usual in psychiatric rehabilitation. ]

[Our body as an ecosystem, or the „brave new world” of metagenomics]

FALUS ANDRÁS, BARCS István, DUDA Ernő

[Micro-organisms (e.g. bacteria) are generally associated with diseases. We rarely consider that these organisms are living creatures, which pursue to survive and reproduce themselves. Obviously, they are dependent on and also have an active impact on their living environment. This interaction might be beneficial but also harmful - a situation they try to avoid. This complex network represents an extremely complicated multi-directional control, the disruption of which may result in serious diseases.]
