Explanatory Notes

What are the expectations from the Participants and Leaders of the Workshop Sessions during the Global Dialogue starting August 1st, 2002 ?

The Global Dialogue starts August 1st, 2002 on Internet. The period August 17-22 is a time for Workshop Sessions to be held in Toronto and a time for summarizing results, and August 31 is the closing of the Global Dialogue. Unless we have sponsors and donations, proceedings will be written in September and made available on this website afterwards (http://globalcommunitywebnet.com/gdufour/Proceedings2002.htm).

Global Dialogue 2002 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.

Their are several Workshop Sessions on Earth Management and are listed here below.

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.

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, university, work place or home.

Daily results of the Workshop Sessions usually include comments and recommendations, results from brain-storming exercises, discussions related to the research papers and world issues, and they are to be sent by email to the leader of the workshop session and to either one of the following email addresses:

in the message area of the email (please no attachment). Each email message should not be larger than 60 KB. Send several messages but try to be within this limit.

All Participants are invited to send their comments and recommendations to the Leaders of their choice.

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. These statements along with the comments and recommendations will be inserted in the space reserved to each workshop session on our website.

All Leaders will contact (by email) paper submitters who have written Lead Papers within their respective workshop session and ask for comments and recommendations. During the period August 17-22, leaders will summarize results and email them to us.

Schedule and workshop sessions to be held at the physical site in Toronto are ready. All information concerning the workshop sessions are given here. More information about the Final Program and about Toronto are given on our website.
