You may apply to lead a Workshop Session.
Leaders of the Workshop Sessions are allowed to organize their sessions in their own town, university or home, wherever, as long as they assume all costs.
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 Workshop Session. This is a grassroots
process and everyone is invited.
There will be no more than one leader per session. Most participants are not likely to afford coming to Global
Dialogue 2005 in Nanaimo but can use the Internet, and we hope they will organize community meetings (workshop sessions) in their own country on behalf of Global Dialogue 2005.
Leaders are included with each workshop session listed in the Workshop Sessions Listing. Click your session of interest and follow the link to 'Participate'.

Your information will appear in the above-mentioned section soon after you sent it.
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 Dialogues 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.
Daily results of the Workshop Sessions usually include comments and recommendations and are to be sent by email to
in the message area of the email (please no attachment unless necessary). This is for security reason as viruses could be attached to files. 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 "Participants" will be read. If you need to use a different email address let me know first by phone.
All Participants are invited to send their comments and recommendations to the Leaders of their choice.
Research papers and other information from participants will also appear in the ' Participant Listing ' section.

All Leaders are required now to send an Opening Statement related to their Workshop Session. A Closing Statement should also be sent during the period August 16-21
. These statements along with the comments and recommendations will be inserted in the space reserved to each Discussion Roundtable and Workshop Session on our website. Follow
the link where you click 'Participate'.
All Leaders will contact (by email) paper submitters who have written Lead Papers within their respective Workshop Sessions and ask for comments and recommendations. During the period August 16-21, Leaders will summarize results and email them as well.
