Dear Friend,

We take great pleasure in inviting your participation at the 5th Global Symposium 2008: ‘Awakening Planetary Consciousness’ from 12th to 15th December 2008 at Lucknow, India. The details of this conference are available at www.wmgd.net/symposium

The Global Symposium is an annual event that has developed a world wide movement through a global partnership with civil society and educational organizations to establish sustainable development, world unity and world peace. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many to be proximate with some amazing people, aside from being able to directly help address major issues confronting the world today.

Global Symposium is an internationally recognised civil society conference which alloys a high-standard conference and a diverse intercultural festival in its programme. The Conference is organized by the World Movement for Global Democracy (WMGD), an initiative of City Montessori School (CMS), Lucknow, India. Global Symposium 2008 will take place in parallel to the 9th International Conference of Chief Justices of the World (World Judiciary Summit 2008). The reports of previous four Global Symposiums (2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007) are available at the official website: www.wmgd.net/symposium

The Purpose of this International gathering, in the first instance, is to strengthen cooperation among the civil society to unite their efforts in world interest and to act and achieve our common goals by: 1) Laying a strong foundation of a nuclear-free, democratic, sustainable, just and peaceful world order by bringing together inter governmental agencies, global leaders, civil society organizations, corporate representatives, media and children and 2) Creating a widespread awareness about issues like scarcity of safe drinking water, reform of governmental and corporate structures, more equitable distribution of resources, development of renewable energy programs and encourage dialogue to replace international conflict for achieving a breakthrough by creating a sustainable future.
The four major themes of Global Symposium are as follows: 1. Structure of World Democracy & World Parliament, 2. World Religions, Spirituality and Culture 3. Education, Human Rights, Grass root Movements and Role of Civil Society and 4. World Peace and Sustainable Development

There is no registration or participation fee. All delegates from abroad will be provided with complimentary boarding and lodging (accommodation and meals) facilities at our guest house along with transport within Lucknow city (Local Transport) from. The delegates are expected to manage their own travel expenses to and from Lucknow city.

We request all Prospective Participants to fill the attached registration form and send it to us as soon as possible by email or fax. After you have sent us this registration form, we will send you the visa invitation letter.

We are determined to think in a long-term strategy so as to realise an international network of civil society, corporate representatives, media, educators and children for securing the future of present generations and those yet to be born. We truly believe that your personal experience and example would give outstanding inspiration for young people to be open, respectful and responsible in their activities and own life.

We are looking forward to your kind reply on our invitation. Please, contact Mr Shishir Srivastava, Organizing Secretary of Global Symposium via email at symposium@wmgd.net or by giving him a ring on his telephone at +91 522 2637219

World Civil Society:
Unite and Act! Let’s Breakthrough!!


The Purpose of this International gathering, in the first instance, is to strengthen cooperation among the civil society to unite their efforts in world interest and to act and achieve our common goals by:

Laying a strong foundation of a nuclear-free, democratic, sustainable, just and peaceful world order by bringing together inter governmental agencies, global leaders, civil society organizations, corporate representatives, media and children.

Creating a widespread awareness about issues like scarcity of safe drinking water, reform of governmental and corporate structures, more equitable distribution of resources, development of renewable energy programs and encourage dialogue to replace international conflict for achieving a breakthrough by creating a sustainable future.

Serving, we hope, in effect, to create the basis for a Union of Peoples, unattached to but which will take action to influence State, Nation, and Power Blocs, and which will foster Ground-Level Action Plans geared to Micro-Initiatives locally, as well as action globally, while being fully informed of the Co-Respecting Spirit of Human Variety as it dwells elsewhere, and Everywhere.

Adopting appropriate Resolutions, both collectively and separately, in all spheres, including Plans for instituting Means, Mechanisms, and Modalities to realize them, with a Spirit of Consensus, and establish the basis for future expansion of the Areas of Mutual Agreement in Ideas, Visions, and Possibilities.

Assembling the innovative ideas and creative experiences of non-governmental and international organizations and all sectors of civil society and articulate a vision for the future that recognizes the fundamental interdependence of humanity and suggests ways to move forward towards a New World.
