November 3-6, Aarhus, Denmark

An international, interdisciplinary research conference

Climate change requires globally concerted initiatives that cannot be motivated by direct practical self-interest and economic incentives alone. The aim of this conference is to compare conceptions of ecological responsibility across cultures (and religions), and to explore the role of intercultural value studies for the development, communication, and practical implementation of new models of future-oriented and collective responsibility. 

GDC09 is the first of a series of five biannual international interdisciplinary conferences presenting and promoting intercultural dialogue on values, as a means of proactive conflict mitigation and social innovation.  The conference will conclude with the bestowal of the Global Dialogue Prize  (

GDC09 is an integrated four-track meeting for researchers, journalists, educators, and business representatives.  

We invite submissions of research contributions from the areas of philosophy, political science, psychology, anthropology, theology/ religious studies, sociology, conflict research, education, journalism and media science, management, organization, and finance theory.
