N) Proposal for Anna-Lindh-Foundation,  European – Mediteranian Countries, Berlin-Alexandria 2008. Transcultural Dialog and Peace-Making Roundtable learning from experience during the last 40 years and new ideas   Stumbling blocks preventing true dialog, peace-making, and reconciliation: 1) we fight over words but do not check the meaning, 2) we do not question and compare the values attached to statements and attitudes, 3) we do not contextualize and embody concepts and meaning, do not check the sectors, regions, scales, proportions and consequences of alternative actions, 4) we do not give voice, empower, listen, cherish and cultivate difference or variety in dialog and decision making, 5) Disorientation and dumbing-down in Cyberculture and a mis-administered and misunderstood, intangible “Globalisation / Glocalisation”: Where we get overloaded by communication noise (sign/symbol melange) and media demagogy which means: no trust and fidelity in the statements and no ways and means to check the credibility and impact/relevance, and get lost between the scales, brackets, and sectors. 6) The above incompatibility and incomparability opens the door for over-claims and oversimplifications. Leaders use intangible jargon (plastic-words), neglect impacts and avoid instead of exploring differences and alternatives.                           UN – ECOSOC- AMR 2008: http://www.quergeist.net/AMR-2008/ http://www.un.org/ecosoc/newfunct/Responses_in_Full-Part_I.pdf
  10. 10. G lo b a l S h a rin g a n d C o pin g S ta rt in g P o in t sI could have also called this UIA guest page GLOBAL CHANGE or LOCAL AND GLOBAL CHANGE - as my work started aboutglobal environmental issues in 1988 with such wide and universal themes. Only because I was involved in two or more projects at that time,and have a certain background which was about preparing and documenting decisions and presenting results, I was able to make the bridge,combine what normally is not seen as one - or in one solution. As both project concepts are not only of wider interest and unique in theirapproach, specially in their time we are proposing here to follow each background independently and then join in again the flow of events.HARMONIZATION GLOBAL CHANGEThe first and most central entry points have been around The other started with the GLOBAL CHANGE conference 1988 ina G7 and SRU German Environmental experts initiative Moskow.which was taken up by the UN- Environment Programme Germany and other countries had been invited to present UNEP - HEM. „Challenges to Science and Politics“ in form of Conferences and Exhibitions. As I was invited to contribute I had to think anew on how such complex Issues could be communicated to the broader public, raising awareness and consciousness, and being correct and helpful for scientists, politicians, and industry at the same time. I go public now 1998 as after having this touring exhibition 8 years in Germany, but never been shown outside Germany, and being updated and in high demand, there is high danger of losing this piece and milestone. Politics look east and local when the exhibition was opened in May 1990. The result we have no public eye and information about the exhibition, its scope and results. As this is fatal in my view, I fee I have to change and address that.

  12. 12. How to explain Copenhagen to a comedianMemo to Eugene Mirmanhttp://www.grist.org/article/2009-12-03-how-to-explain-copenhagen-to-a-comedian Photo illustration / iStock imagesComedian Eugene Mirman is going to Copenhagen for Grist to cover the international climate talks.Eugene is a fairly well-informed guy (he at least scans Google News looking for reviews of hislatest album), but he’s the first to admit that he doesn’t live, eat, and smoke climate policy.At his request, the Grist staff threw together a basic cheat sheet on Copenhagen.  It’s overly simplistic. Itavoids lots of important details. It’s probably offensive. In short, it’s just enough to help Eugene feigncluefulness when he’s accosting world leaders in Denmark.

January 1997, Austria,Worldview Compositions and Cognitive Spaces- a necessary evolutionary step by Heiner Benking Guilford, J. P., The Nature of Human Intelligence, New York: McGraw Hill, 1967. Structure of Intellect. [175] Cf. the work of Heiner Benking. To be publihed in 9. Augmented knowledge in the book by Kim Veltman: Augmented Books, Knowledge, and Culture http://www.isoc.org/inet2000/cdproceedings/ 6d/6d_1.htmThese quests to master new knowledge owe much to systems theory, "chaos theory" (aseemingly contradictory combination of terms), complexity, [77] and developments in neuralnetworks, whereby systematic treatments of apparently random forms bring unexpectedpatterns of order.What makes these trends the more significant is that thinkers concerned with thesystematization of intellect, such as Guilford, have intuitively sought to link units, classes,relations, systems, etc. with products and operations (figure 12). Cf. the work of HeinerBenking.

A: STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM AND RATIONALE FOR PAPER/CONCEPT 1. Increasing complexity of multidimensional problems and resulting need to integrate diverse data and information sources in resolving problems must be: a) disciplinary (all disciplines), b. Intersectorial (gov., industry, academia, public), c) international (even for local or nationalproblems there are usually some international dimensions) 2. Proliferation of databases and digital information at all these levels make finding,understanding, and using all of the relevant information extremely difficult, if not impossible, 3. Numerous barriers to effective integration exist a) Examples... 4. Imperative to Overcome these barriers B: STATEMENT OF THE SOLUTION C: ORGANIZATIONII. DESCRIPTION OF CONCEPT A Conceptual Superstructure or Scaffolding .... Other Attempts/Models Potential Applications, Examples, Why not worked/have been insufficient Why this is differentIII.
