Global Dialogue 2004 is about all of the issues we discussed during the previous global dialogues plus new issues related to helping humanity in seeing how important this 21st century is to the survival of all life on Earth. It is a difficult period of time for it implies the survival of all lifeforms on Earth for the next million years.  The world needs more understanding, more explanation about what direction we ought to take as a species, what are our duties as citizens of the Earth, and as the Global Community.

Workshop Sessions and Discusssion Roundtables will last from  August 1 to 31. One of the sites for the Workshop Sessions  is in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. The actual location will be made available at a later date. Other Workshop Sessions may be organized all over the world.

This Call for Papers contains all the information needed to submit a paper to be considered by Global Dialogue 2004.

We welcome proposals for individual papers, presentations, traditional panel discussions and workshops. We encourage non-traditional formats including facilitated groups, photographic, poster and dramatic displays dealing with pertinent themes. We are extending a special invitation to community groups, community activists and others directly involved in the challenges of community and home development. Please submit your proposals for individual papers, panels, workshops or displays using the  forms shown in the Final Program.

Paper topics include all aspects of sustainable development, Earth governance and management, plus all issues related to the formation of new symbiotical relationships on Earth and as defined in Issues 2004.

We are asking members of the Earth Community Organization (ECO), the Global Community,  and participants in Global Dialogue 2004,  to submit any of the following work:

*    Results of brain-storming exercises on issues.

It will be their first unified achievement.  Children's education is also part of the theme for this global dialogue. There is a need to train the next generation in the skills of collaborating in the future management of global change, which will be vital to survival. Students of all levels (school, college, technical, university) are invited to participate in Earth Community projects. They are asked to produce any creative work of their vision of what  the Global Community can accomplish ~ in the fields of zoology, biology, on history, on geography, on social and political sciences, on agriculture, energy, earth sciences, forestry, communications, wilderness, pollution, on the water supplies of the world, poverty, employment, social justice, human rights, universal values, global concepts, business and economy, availability of resources and so on.
