The Local Context Global Dialogues are happening in different parts of the world between now, Rio+20 and beyond. Global Dialogues bring to life local aspirations by engaging and empowering all levels of society in envisioning and co-creating the future that we want. Burundi
The Local Context What a Global Dialogue looks like and can create….
How it all started…. In November 2011, some individuals came together to explore the questions: How can we awaken a global sense of responsibility for the future that we want? How can we inspire people to become planetary stewards for our collective wellbeing? By connecting to other people, a realization came that there were many other people exploring the same questions. As a result, the project One future…. One Planet was born.
Countries engaged with the Project Sweden Brazil USA Switzerland Denmark Spain UK Portugal Mexico Burundi Mauritius New Zealand Japan Netherland Netherlands Belgium 16 countries
The Process Connect, Envision, Engage, Reflect, and Share The 5 step process became the framework for learning how to envision, co-create, and collaborate for the future that we want. This process is clear, simple, universal, and based on principles of wisdom through which people naturally feel attracted to join, share, and collaborate.
The Dialogue Process 1-CONNECT Connect to each other & learn about the GD purpose & principles Explore in small groups what is the future we want? 4-REFLECT Reflect and ask yourself: What actions can I take to support the co-creation of this future and society? 5-SHARE Harvesters share Feedback from the group Creation of Action-Teams 2-ENVISION Exercise - Envision in big circle an equitable and flourishing future and society Share in big circle your experiences of this future with the group 3-ENGAGE In small groups explore the following questions: 1. What do we need to learn, 2. what do we need to change; 3. and, what do we need to act on to create the future we want?
The Team From all over the world individuals and organisations joined to share this initiative in their countries and to support through their networks and connections the emergence of this new way of coming together and co- creating the future and society we want. Join the growing list of networks and organisations that are already part of the Team: The Natural Step International (TNSi), The Art of Hosting (AoH), ELIA – Ecological Living In Action, Masters on Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability Alumni (MSLSers), The Hub, Iniciativa Mundo Emergente (IMER-Brazil), TV Rio20.com (web-based TV).
What is emerging? Participants of the Global Dialogues have expressed that the power of this process is how it brings forth the emergence of a whole new way of relating and interacting, based on the future they envisioned: I found it amazing how people regardless of sphere, background, generation, gender, culture or social class could come together and generate such a wide array of ideas and solutions. It was so enriching to meet and interact with people who all want to see and act for a change in the way we live. After attending Global Dialogues, I realise that I am not alone. Indeed, even individually I can take small steps that can make a difference and contribute to a sustainable future.
Why your contribution matters! The Global Dialogues contributes to and will feed into a larger process of decision making and information sharing at a local and global level, and aims to nurture the movement of global citizens who are willing to be the change that is needed for an equitable and prosperous society and future. Your voice, your input, and your actions are incredibly important to humanitys awakening in being the change that is needed now!
