Documentary made by me : )
“Leading members of the World Public Forum network community from different fields of expertise met at the ancient Greek Island with colorful southern landscapes on the background, accompanied by harmonious chants and music. This relaxing atmosphere contrasts with the content of the Forum’s intense proceedings. The speakers presented their vision of the existing challenges of globalization including the growing risks of wars, economic crises, climate changes, poverty and many others.
Global changes we are encountering today represent the objective processes that however may result differently. The task of all responsible members of the global society as seen by WPF community is therefore to make the outcome successful and the world at least a little more harmonious for everyone.
What unites all the voices is dialogical approach to human life implying openness, mutual trust and respect and striving for eliminating many injustices of the existing reality.”

“The unusual activism of central banks may, at the margin, have worsened further wealth distribution,” said El-Erian, whose company is manager of the world’s largest bond fund. “To the extent that such policy activism succeeds in bolstering asset values, but not the real economy, the rich benefit disproportionately.”
I’m very proud to present my latest film:
Every autumn since 2003 the ancient Greek island of Rhodes hosts a session of the World Public Forum «Dialogue of Civilizations» called the Rhodes Forum that brings together public figures and statesmen, academics, religious figures and representatives of the arts, mass media and business spheres from all over the world. The sessions of the WPF «Dialogue of Civilizations» proved the urgency and efficacy of the Forum by bringing the focus of world public opinion to the problems of intercultural dialogue and the need to work out instruments to make interaction among cultures and civilizations possible. The results achieved by the Forum give a hope for further harmonization of international relations and strengthening of stability in the world.

To all you people out there – you have my full support – rock on! It seems like you’re doing so much good with the time, besides of course just the fact that you’re there. But I also love the work shops, culture groups, your general assemblies, the tests and development of direct democracy at meetings, etc. I find you great. Big hugs!
