Scheduling

Global Dialogue 2005 begins August 1st, 2005, on the Internet, and end August 31st. Roundtable Discussions begin on the Internet today, now. Participate now. No need to wait until August 2005 to dialogue.

You can organize your own Workshop Sessions.








Introduction and Procedure


Global Dialogue 2005 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 Discussion Roundtable(s) and/or a Workshop Session(s).

Leaders of the Workshop Sessions being held all over the world and Leaders of Discussion Roundtables on the Internet 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 Discussion Roundtable or Workshop Session. This is a grassroots process and everyone is invited.

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, the civil society) from all over the planet participating interactively from their own town, community, universities or homes.

Daily results of the Discussion Roundtables and Workshop Sessions usually include comments and recommendations and are to be sent by email to GlobalConstitution@telus.net
or 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 Participants will be read.

All Participants are invited to send their papers, comments and recommendations to the Leaders of their choice and they may send them also directly to the Office of Global Dialogue 2005. 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.

Leaders are required to send an Opening Statement at the beginning of a Discussion Roundtable or Workshop Session. A Closing Statement should also be sent at the end of a workshop session or discussion roundtable. 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.

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. Follow the links.

All Leaders will contact (by email) paper submitters who have written Lead Papers within their respective Discussion Roundtable and Workshop Session and ask for comments and recommendations. All papers must be reviewed. During the period August 16-21 leaders will summarize results and email them as well.

Participate in Workshop Sessions
Opinions, ideas, and recommendations presented in the articles, press releases and letters of the Newsletters as well as research papers themselves form a basis for discussion during the Global Dialogue. Participants will also bring their input for discussion.


 
 






Workshop Session leaders info

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'. A typical Workshop Session looks as shown here.
