Unity in Diversity is essential for achieving humankind's goal of inhabiting the planet as a safer and brighter place to live. Peace and harmony with self and nature ensures protecting bio-diversity and environment, while opening the paths for space exploration and colonization. I.e., inhabiting the Universe. 
 
As brothers and sisters from beautiful planet Earth, the Unity in Diversity project aims to demonstrate that "dialogue" is the one and only way towards a brighter future, uniting all of humankind as one. That is, all people regardless of their beliefs, culture, citizenship etc., united in their common good.
 
Global Dialogue Foundation (GDF) is therefore initiating, promoting and fostering cooperation among the global community.
 
As we are all the same - believers and members of various religions,faiths, cultures, civilisations and as ordinary citizens - all at once, the development of humankind and planet Earth as universal goals are both interrelated and interdependent. We consider that the need to intimately know one-another requires each of the following:
  1. Remembering and celebrating our past. Living with happiness in the present. Creating a brighter future for all, while maintaining the identity of each citizenship, culture, faith/religion, i.e., each belonging & glory;
  1. Dialogue among traditional faiths/religions, i.e., spiritual and belief systems - for identifying unique pathways towards their unifying aspects. Also, for maintaining healthy lifestyle, morals and ethics among humankind with each person being a truly unique guardian of morality and longevity.  Promoting mind/body meditative relaxation and healthy food, fasting, diets for the coming world of change, where a new way of living and behaving means helping each other like true brothers and sisters and maintaining one's own identity and safe environment for the new world order, common positive progress and the safety of our next generations;
  1. Dialogue among civil sector / non-government organisations (NGO's) - promoting and demonstrating the true benefits of helping each other in an increasingly interdependent and mixed world. Together, developing unique and universal models for coordinating and improving environmental and humanitarian activities on both local and global levels, via UN systems;
  1. Dialogue among government organisations and institutions from various parts of the world with civil sector and NGO's. Maintaining active interconnection for the betterment of their own; new, old, loyal and ordinary citizens who are in the same time and place; believers, members of different cultures and faiths/religions and members of organisations- humanitarian, environmental, business/corporate sector etc. Governments are encouraged to research and find unique models for improving their cooperation with citizens in this time of change for common good and to coordinate their activities on both local and global levels via UN systems;
The above are key reasons for promoting the need and value of dialogue for a brighter and safer tomorrow - a new day for all, in this part of the world and at the same time, for all on this planet. Finally, East can shake hands with West for the common good and for a brighter and safer future for the planet and all it's citizens and their future generations - here on earth and later in the Universe.
 
Finding real solutions for living together with firm moral and ethical standards, i.e., universal laws, healthy mind/body/soul lifestyle is more then a need. It's a must!
 
GDF is inspiring and initiating paths for this noble goal to be realised as a masterpiece of us all - ordinary citizens of this beautiful planet Earth.

UNITY IN DIVERSITY GLOBAL DIALOGUE VISION
A GLANCE INTO THE FUTURE 

OUR VISION is to initiate, promote and establish permanent GLOBAL DIALOGUE SUMMITS in both East and West regions of the World.
 
The brave and progressive initiatives and conferences on Dialogue among Civilizations, Cultures, Faiths and Religions organized and promoted by Vatican, Spain, Macedonia (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6) Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan...UN, and the establishment of "Alliance of Civilizations" within the UN system of Governance is acknowledged, supported and hailed by GDF.
 
Since then, our aim is to promote, initiate and increase awareness of the need for similar noble meetings and gatherings among intellectuals, faiths, business leaders, Government and Non-Government organizations, civil and corporate/business sectors in this part of the world. 
 
We see a future where gatherings for Dialogue on issues of concern will be held like an "Olympic Games for Dialogue" and all conclusions, initiatives and similar opinions important for global community are addressed to the Alliance of Civilizations and UN DPI-NGO, i.e. the UN.
 
In this manner, the UN will be a real and right place for Universal Global Dialogue and the global engine for driving this planet and Mankind towards a better and safer future for all - tracing paths for space travelers. The path towards Universe and Light.
