ATCA and IntentBlog to address complex global challenges


London, UK - 5 September 2006, 22:00 GMT- ATCA, the London based leading global forum to address complex threats to humanity, and IntentBlog, a group blog featuring unique voices from around the world from Los Angeles to Mumbai, have begun to share seminal Socratic Dialogue threads. The dialogue threads seek to address the top ten complex global challenges of the present age by bringing together important decision makers in major governments, corporations, voluntary organisations and NGOs as well as experts from academia and philanthropists. The top ten asymmetric risks and opportunities identified in the 21st century include climate chaos, radical poverty, organised crime, extremism, informatics, nanotechnology, robotics, genetics, artificial intelligence and financial systems.

The first eleven Socratic Dialogue threads within the 'Open ATCA' series presented on IntentBlog are focussed on the Hydrogen Economy, Climate Chaos, Einstein-Russell, New Orleans, Buddha, Blended Value, Iran, Advaita, Social Entrepreneurship, Unity and Non-Violence. Apparently diverse on first reading, Socratic Dialogue threads have demonstrated that these subjects are closely interlinked -- with multiple cross references -- in terms of addressing some of the key global complexities witnessed in the short and medium term with long term impact.

"IntentBlog is very privileged to collaborate with ATCA and elevate the level of dialogue that comes to us from this distinguished group of thinkers," said Deepak Chopra, Co-Founder, IntentBlog. "We hope to change our collective narrative via this initiative so there is deeper understanding of the tangled hierarchy and inseparability of co-arising complex global challenges. Understanding is the basis for intuition, love, compassion and creative solutions. Let us hope this accelerates the formation of a critical mass of global consciousness to help build a better world."

"We are delighted to start the 'Open ATCA' initiative on IntentBlog which allows members of both communities to interact with each other as one and address complex global challenges in unison,"
said DK Matai, Chairman, The Philanthropia, ATCA and mi2g. "Having reached critical mass, we have been searching for the past year for an ideal high quality online partner that will allow the ATCA closed group of distinguished thinkers to engage with the global community in a positive and meaningful way. After examining many options, we are delighted to begin the friendly alliance between the ATCA and IntentBlog distinguished communities."

ATCA: The Asymmetric Threats Contingency Alliance is a philanthropic expert initiative founded in 2001 to understand and to address complex global challenges. ATCA conducts collective Socratic dialogue on global opportunities and threats arising from climate chaos, radical poverty, organised crime, extremism, informatics, nanotechnology, robotics, genetics, artificial intelligence and financial systems. Present membership of ATCA is by invitation only and has over 5,000 distinguished members: including several from the House of Lords, House of Commons, EU Parliament, US Congress & Senate, G10's Senior Government officials and over 1,500 CEOs from financial institutions, scientific corporates and voluntary organisations as well as over 750 Professors from academic centres of excellence worldwide.
