Unity in Diversity-10.10.10_Marketplace of Ideas




Marketplace of Ideas

The Melbourne Forum (10-12 Oct, 2010), organised by the Global Dialogue Foundation (GDF) under the auspices of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, showcased some of the most innovative and successful grassroots initiatives aimed at promoting mutual understanding among people and cultures in the Asia-Pacific Region.
This event was held in the presence of 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

The Marketplace of Ideas serves both as:

    - a platform to expose innovative initiatives to media, policy makers and foundations;
    - an advisory source for projects on how to replicate and scale up.
