Melbourne Forum showcasing most innovative and successful grassroots initiatives in the Asia-Pacific Region
The Global Dialogue Foundation under the auspices of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations is organizing the Melbourne Forum from 11 to 12 October 2010.
The Forum will showcase some of the most innovative and successful grassroots initiatives aimed at promoting mutual understanding among people and cultures in the Asia-Pacific Region as part of its “Marketplace of Ideas” Project. It will bring together business and political leaders, policy makers, influential civil society leaders, media, heads of religious communities and academics.
The Global Dialogue Foundation is looking for long-term partnerships with creative grassroots projects that drive change by:
1) contributing to mutual understanding among diverse communities and cultures;
2) helping to overcome cultural, religious, and ethnic tensions;
3) building peace
Civil society organizations can submit their projects by writing about them in an essay format and submit them to the Forum organizers. The deadline to submit the applications is 15 September 2010. For more information, visit this link.
