Ms. Karine Henrotte-Forsberg 
 I have the great pleasure to welcome you all to the University Women of Europe (UWE). Meeting to be held at Hotel Park in Dubrovnik, Croatia, between October 11 and 13, 2002. 
These european meetings every year constitute a fabulous opportunity to get to know women from other european countries. It is also each time an occasion to discover a new country. This year through the courtesy of the Croatian federation of University Women, we shall have the pleasure to get to know Croatia. I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to the founding President, the President and her Board of the Croatian federation for making this possible. 
The theme chosen by the Croatian federation is "Environment Protection and Health - what can UWE do in the 21st century". The link between environment and Health is widely discussed in debates all over Europe today and UWE would like to make its contribution to this debate. 
Our aim is to explore through exchange of ideas the various environment factors and living conditions which lead to poor health and discrimination. But we would also like to see how UWE through our existing network can promote change and a positive development for women in the coming decades. 
May the knowledge gained in Dubrovnik become a platform for future cooperation between women of good will in order to save ourselves, our children and our planet. 
See you in Croatia! 
and Programme Committee Vice-president 
Prof. Nada Bešenski MD.PhD.
