Here is an FAQ on the nature of the gathering, and details on how to get setup for the video conference.
What is the purpose of GLOBALIZM NOW forums?
To bring together people with a shared passion for particular global topics
To corroborate ideas and identify solutions
To take direct or indirect action to have an impact and move the needle forward on the topic at hand.
What is the nature of NOW forums?
NOW forums are often spun off from THE GLOBALITÉ CAFÉ, a dialogue forum where global topics are examined.
NOW forums are formed when one or more globalite feels that the topic needs active action NOW
There may be multiple NOW forums at any given time, each dealing with a different topic
Participation is open to anyone interested in the topic and wanting to be a part of the solution
Some Suggestions on the Nature of NOW forums:
* NOW Forums are lead by a lead who is passionate about the topic and is willing to do what it takes to make an impact
* The lead in consultation with the team plans the agenda and mode of conducting the forum based on his/her leadership style
* Each NOW forum may have a different format because it is driven by the team involved
* NOW forums demonstrate a sense of urgency to take fast but well considered action
* Action may be direct or indirect
* NOW forums may continue as long as they are needed to address the topic or may close upon consensus within the team
* Find expression for your urge to do greater good along with like-minded people interested on the same global topics as you
* Learn to work with a globally distributed team to take focused action for a cause
* Make friends in the process!
