The whole society could engage in a global dialogue about the future we want to create together; What if... We had a common language that empowered ALL of society’s stakeholders to better understand and plan for an equitable and flourishing society; Youth could create social, political and economic change, by doing what they most like to do: Have Fun!
In November 2011, a few individuals, passionate about making this vision a reality, came together to explore how to best create momentum for such change. They also started exploring the best processes for creating synergies amongst ALL of society’s stakeholders. While connecting to others, it became clear that many people all over the world shared a similar intention and commitment. With RIO+20 fast approaching and providing the needed momentum, they realised that the time to come together and act is now! As a result, 'One Future…. One Planet' Project was born.
Our objectives are to: process common language Share a process and common language with both decision makers and participatory society to engage the whole society (all levels and all generations) in creation of an equitable and flourishing future. Support emergence of synergies amongst sustainability frameworks used to measure, compare and assess our progress towards such a future. Build up the momentum for action and strategy for global change while having fun and fostering the youth capacity to deal with the challenges such change entails. Our purpose is to inspire and support the synergies and emergence of new forms of communities and collaborative networks that focus on co-creating a future in which both people and Nature flourish together.
SOCIETY DECISION MAKERS Most people think society works like this: Our strategies will function like this : By bringing society together, including decision makers, in “Global Dialogues” for the Future We Want DECISION MAKERS YOUTH By bringing a common language to institutions, in the form of a Unifying Framework By engaging Society and Youth in a Global Game for social change – “PlayThe Call”
First, let us tell you more about Global Dialogues Global Dialogues is a five-step process - Connect, Envision, Engage, Reflect, and Share. Dialogue is a powerful form of communication aimed at fostering mutual insight and common purpose, perfectly suited for transition times when people feel concerned about growing uncertainty and accelerated change. The Global Dialogues process is designed to go further: to take participants on a journey through which they get to experience in their whole being the future and society they want, as a real and collective possibility.
The Global Dialogue process completes with the formation of action-teams, which are further supported through global and national platforms. Visit:http://newsynergies.or g/global-dialogues/ http://newsynergies.or g/global-dialogues/ Along the way participants discover their own knowledge and ability to contribute to this future, as well as the desire to make it happen through co- creative and collaborative actions.
In the words of Participants… “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.” “It was a very enriching experience especially the envision part, which I think is the essence of the session. “ “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.”
The Global Dialogues are being held all over the world - bringing together people from all kinds of backgrounds, cultures, ages, and positions. Sweden Brazil USA Switzerland Denmark Spain UK Portugal Mexico Burundi Mauritius New Zealand Japan Netherlands Belgium 16 countries Global Dialogues aim to : Inform national leaders who are representing their own country at the International UN Conference Rio +20 in June, about the kind of future, that we, as a society, want to create together. All the Global Dialogues Country Reports will be combined into one Global Report that will be presented to the UNCSD during Rio+20. Bring to life the national sustainability efforts that in many countries lack a multi-stakeholder participatory process that inspires people to take action at their local level, and in doing so: Awaken and empower the social dimension of change for a more sustainable and flourishing future and society.
The Global Dialogues will culminate into the Rio+20 side event called a 1.000 Tables Dialogue, with 10.000 people and 1 000 facilitators involved. People around the world will be invited to host Global Dialogues simultaneously and, with the help of technology, connect to the main event in Rio. This idea is inspired and supported by the organising team of Tel Aviv (Israel) 1 000 Tables that took place on September 11th 2011.
GAME RULES - 5F’s One Future … One Planet" is collaborating with ‘PlayTheCall’ project in the following ways: Connect the 1. 000 Tables event with the pre-launch of “PlayThe Call” at Rio +20 to create the youth momentum and participation within the international conference context (Game official launch - Dec 2012). Provide the Unifying Framework concept to support the game in ensuring that the tasks and actions, taken by players, are leading towards full sustainability. Help develop the ‘Impact Meter’ to measure sustainability impact within the game. FAST – What if we could change the world at lunch time? Ordinary people get to perform simple and easy actions. FREE – What if we already have all the resources we need? Use your imagination, creativity and perform actions with help of your talents and your friends. FUN - What if we changed the world while playing? Playing, especially together, allows us to forget our fears and achieve totally unexpected results.
Progress up to date The project will be presented at the Stockholm+40 Conference in April 23-25, 2012 Global Dialogues already happened in Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Burundi region (involving Ruanda, Kenya, Congo and Uganda), and Mauritius Islands. Global Dialogues already planned: Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, New Zealand, Mexico and Brazil. “PlayTheCall” will be presented at the Stockholm+40 Conference. Conversations are underway with IDB (Inter-American Development Bank) and ITC - International Trade Center as potential partners for the Unifying Framework initiative. Around 20 volunteers are working on the project, representing the following countries: Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Denmark, Mauritius, New Zealand, USA, UK, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Belgium, Japan and Mexico. We connected with a web-based TV from Brazil, “TV Meio-Ambiente”, specializing in ecological matters, which will broadcast Rio+20 live including the 1000 Tables event. Space has been requested from the Brazilian Government for the 1000 Tables as a side event at Rio+20.
