Introduction and Procedure


Global Dialogue 2006 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).

Here is how it works.

Each issue is connected to a Workshop Session or to a Discussion Roundtable.

So far we have 59 issues set-up but new issues maybe created. The 59 issues maybe accessed here.

All issues with titles:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59

First a Participant may ask to be a Leader of a Workshop Session or of a Discussion Roundtable.

Leaders may also be chosen from the Participant list.

Each issue has an index such as this:

Opening Remark by Leader
Procedure
Lead Papers
Comments and Recommendations from Participants (by name and address)
Summary of Comments from Participants
Summary of Recommendations from Participants
Assessment of Results of Discussion Roundtable and Conclusion
Closing Remark by Leader

Participants send their articles, research papers, comments, recommendations, results from a forum or a brain-storming exercises. The work of each participant is entered in his/her individual FILE. Depending of what the Participant wants, the same work may be entered in the 'active session' of any issue. The following sections are 'active sessions' for Participants.
Lead Papers
Comments and Recommendations from Participants (by name and address)

The Leader(s) of each session will then perform the following work:
Summary of Comments from Participants
Summary of Recommendations from Participants
Assessment of Results of Discussion Roundtable and Conclusion
Closing Remark by Leader

Leaders of the Workshop Sessions being held all over the world and in Nanaimo 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 send the above results to this office to be entered on the website for viewing by everyone.

Daily results of the Discussion Roundtables and Workshop Sessions are to be sent by email to
globalcommunity@telus.net
or to GlobalConstitution@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 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.

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 2006. 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 Discussion Roundtable or Workshop Session. A Closing Statement should also be sent during the period August 17-22, 2006. 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.

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 17-22 leaders will summarize results and email them as well.

Participate in Discussion Roundtables
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.


 
 






Leaders info

You may apply to lead a Discussion Roundtable.

Leaders of the Discussion Roundtables 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 Discussion Roundtable. 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 2006 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 2006.

Leaders are included with each Discussion Roundtable listed in the Discussion Roundtables Listing. Click your session of interest and follow the link to 'Participate'. A typical Discussion Roundtable looks as shown here.

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 Discussion Roundtables usually include comments and recommendations and are to be sent by email to

globalcommunity@telus.net
or to GlobalConstitution@telus.net

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 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 17-22.

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 17-22, Leaders will summarize results and email them as well.
