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 Rhodes Forum have proved the urgency, importance, and efficacy of the WPF’s ideals by bringing the focus of world public opinion to bear on the need for inter-cultural and inter-civilizational dialogue. The results achieved by the Forum thus far provide hope for further harmonization of international relations and promotion of global stability.
The 11th Annual Rhodes Session of the WPF “Dialogue of Civilizations” will take place on October 2-6, 2013. It is seen as a series of comprehensive dialogues devoted to a most timely public understanding of the integral picture of the world, its vectors of development and natural evolution, as well as possible various projects of world structuring. Such subjects as self-destruction of mankind and degradation of its habitat, the barbaric demolition of its cultures remain crucial and demanding intent attention.
