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 tsI 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 arounda G7 and SRU German Environmental experts initiative The other started with the GLOBAL CHANGE conferencewhich was taken up by the UN- Environment ProgrammeUNEP - HEM. late 1980 -- 1992 1988 in Moscow. Germany and other countries had been invited to present „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.

Breaking Down New Walls 10th Annual Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, Berlin, November, 9-11 2009 Whoever imagines mental deep permeable barriers which actually do not exist and then thinks them away, has understood the world. As space is entrapped in geometrys network of lines, thought is caught in its (own) inherent laws. Maps make the world comprehensible to us; we are still waiting for the star-maps of the spirit. In the same way than ambling through fields we risk getting lost,Interview, Panel-Discussion, …. the spirit negotiates its terrain.

e – DISCUSSION ON ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTyoarhgitnelpmI"agreed goals and commitmentsin regard to sustainable development". 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.
