Introduction and Procedure

Global Dialogue 2008 is being held all over the planet. Our website is used to relate results to everyone so as to continue the discussions with everyone else on Earth.

Participants may apply to lead a Global Roundtable(s) and/or a Workshop Session(s).

Here is how it works.

All Global Dialogue 2008 issues were listed in the issues section.
Each Global Dialogue 2008 issue is connected to a Workshop Session or to a Global Roundtable.

Each Global Roundtable may have one or more Global Dialogue 2008 issues and has an index such as this:

  • Opening Remark by Leader
  • Procedure
  • Work from participants and authors with a summary or abstract of each work
  • Comments and recommendations from Participants (by name and address)
  • Summary of comments from Participants
  • Summary of recommendations from Participants
  • Assessment of results of Global Roundtable and Conclusion
  • Closing Remark by Leader

To connect with each Global Roundtable click on a Global Roundtable in the Listing of Global Roundtables 2008.

Participants send their articles, research papers, comments, videos and other works of art, recommendations, and results from a forum or a brain-storming exercises. The work of each participant is entered in his/her individual FILE and summarized in the Global Roundtable section "Work from participants and authors with a summary or abstract of each work".

Leaders of the Workshop Sessions being held all over the world and in Nanaimo and Leaders of Global Roundtables are allowed to organize their sessions in their own town, global community, university or home, wherever, as long as they assume all costs and responsibilities. Noone is being paid for their work and expenses. This is strictly on a volunteering basis and no money is available or will be available. You may also invite the public, experts and all Participants to your Global Roundtable or Workshop Session. This is a grassroots process and everyone is invited.

Leaders send the above results to this office to be entered on the website for viewing by everyone.

Daily results of the Global Roundtables and Workshop Sessions are to be sent by email to globalcommunity@telus.net in the message area of the email (please no attachment unless necessary). Each email message should not be larger than 60 KB. Send several messages but try to be within this limit. Only messages with email addresses shown under the Participants List will be read.

Leaders do not have to do this. They may even up-out of this process at any time without penalties of any kind (let me know now if you cannot go on with this process). So please be understanding! We are breaking grounds with the Global Dialogue and in the ways international conferences may be held in the future. Noone has ever organized a Global Dialogue having people (including the general public) from all over the planet participating interactively from their own town, community, universities or homes.

All Participants are invited to send their work with comments and recommendations to the Leaders of their choice and also directly to the Office of Global Dialogue 2008. Participants are required to communicate with their leaders of interest. You are required to discuss via email and send comments and recommendations to them. Leaders will relate to this website your comments and recommendations and summarizing results.

All Leaders are required to send an Opening Statement related to their Global Roundtable or Workshop Session. A Closing Statement should also be sent during the period August 17-22, 2008. These statements along with the comments and recommendations will be inserted in the space reserved to each Global Roundtable and Workshop Session on our website.

The list of participants who have sent research papers is shown on our website. If you are planning to send a research paper do read the section ' Expectations from those sending research papers ', and the section ' Call for Papers '. When you submit a paper you must fill and send us the Paper Submission Cover Sheet. Research papers and other information will also be copied on our website in the Participant Listing section.

All Leaders will contact (by email) paper submitters who have written Lead Papers within their respective Global Roundtable and Workshop Session and ask for comments and recommendations. All papers must be reviewed. During the period August 17-22 leaders will summarize results and email them as well.
