A Summary of the Earth Charter On-Line Internet Conferences, April, October and November 1999
In 1999 the Earth Council as the Earth Charter International Secretariat, pioneered components of on-line interactive technology for the purpose of promoting social change and social action dialogue over the Internet. This technology took the form of three online conferences held on the Earth Charter in April, October and November of 1999. These conferences were designed to be interactive and included presentations by prominent activists, theorists and practitioners in the field of sustainable development. The conferences provided the opportunity for dialogue through moderated on-line discussion forums focusing on the presentations and related general discussion topics.
