Information for applying to be an audience participant for the Congress:
Letter from the Trustee:
Should you choose to attend Congress 2008 please be aware that this is not a formal professional convention but an active interactive Congress of peoples.
Panelists and Participants will engage each other in Dialog and Discussion in both Panel Sessions and in Open Plenaries. Panelists will draft globally spread out Grassroots Projects, that the Congress is aiming at, within individual Panel Sessions and then will submit them to the Review of the Assembly of the Whole that will suggest alternations and improvements. Think of it, again, as a microcosmic Global Town Meeting.
Each Panel will be charged with delivering concrete Projects that will embody the Vision contained in the relevant Resolutions emanating from Congress 2007.
As such this is less of a Talking-Congress much as a Doing-Congress. We will also, as far as humanly possible, aim at Consensual decision-making rather than “majority” rule.
