A new form of global dialogue to be explored in a conference in Kazakhstan

From 5 to 7 November 2014 Almaty, Kazakhstan will host a conference on the development of a new comprehensive and integrated approach for sustainable human development.

The three day-event forms part of the collaborative effort of several leading international organizations to develop a framework for a new paradigm of human-centered development capable of addressing the pressing challenges confronting humanity. It builds on a recent preparatory conference that took place in Baku, Azerbaijan on 30 April 2014, which confirmed the need, opportunity and benefits that can be derived from collaborative work on these pressing global issues.

The conference will explore the linkages between different sectors, dimensions and aspects of global society and the complex challenges that require the formulation of comprehensive and integrated strategies. The objective is to bring together participating organizations for substantive in-depth discussions to establish the basis for a comprehensive, integrated approach to addressing global issues.

Alexander Likhotal and Adam Koniuszewski (Green Cross International) will join representatives from the Club de Madrid, the Club of Rome, the World Future Council, the Foundation for Culture and Peace, the International Association of University Presidents, the Library of Alexandria, and several other organizations, policy and research institutions as well as universities including ILO, UNESCO, UNDP, New Millenium Project, Inter-Academy Panel, ICSU, OECD, TWAS, ALLEA and several European and national academies for a more in-depth examination and discussion.

The conclusions will constitute the basis for the next conference in Baku, Azerbaijan, in April 2015 to focus on conditions, strategies and steps for the transition to a new paradigm.
