THERE'S NO "ONE-SENTENCE SUMMARY"
FOR THESE GLOBAL INCLUSIONDIALOGUES.
GLOBAL INCLUSION DIALOGUES
AS A HEARTBEAT
We hear that this world is small—and growing smaller, due to the phenomena of climate change, mass migration, and the closing digital divide. But when injustices occur within and across borders, what criteria are necessary to create a global community that nourishes, stimulates, and inspires? And once such a community exists, what are its goals? What are its challenges and opportunities? What are its plans for sustainability, and its unforeseen risks?
Each annual meeting, or dialogue, takes place in the secluded setting of a previously unvisited country. Participants consider issues of global importance, and how they affect the each dialogue's host country. Dialogues last 2-4 days, and attract 20-30 participants—mostly from the preexisting GCD community, and always with a few new additions.
Polarization + Inclusion
In the beautiful historic city of Larvik in Norway, a Global Inclusion Dialogue will take place around the themes of Polarization and Inclusion in a small group of max. 20 participants.
Local Hosts: Bjørn Ekelund and Piotr Piuta.
What started initially as Global Diversity Dialogue then Global Community Dialogue, now the Global Inclusion Dialogue is now a community of distinct individuals from around the world, who work both within organizations and independently, as consultants, coaches, educators, students, writers, trainers, and much more. But above all, like everyone in the world, we are people with valid experiences, memories, ideas, and emotions. We are always seeking to become more diverse, open, curious, and international.
